Job Description

Are you an active researcher looking for your next challenge?  Do you have a background in ecological economics, heterodox economics, input-output analysis and/or stock-flow consistent modelling?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

We are looking for a Post-Doctoral researcher to develop an input-output stock-flow consistent model for evaluation and planning of circular economy practices.

You will be involved in "JUST2CE" (A Just Transition to the Circular Economy), which is an EU-funded project launched by a consortium of 14 universities and research centres across Europe and Africa. While you will be based at the Economics Division of Leeds University Business School (University of Leeds, UK), you will work in a multi-country and multi-disciplinary environment.

The team of investigators includes Marco Veronese Passarella (Associate Professor of Economics at Link University of Rome and Lecturer in Economics at University of Leeds, Coordinator of JUST2CE Leeds Unit), Annina Kaltenbrunner (Associate Professor in the Economics of Globalisation and the International Economy at University of Leeds, Co-Investigator JUST2CE), Effie Kesidou (Associate Professor of Applied Economics at University of Leeds, Co-Investigator JUST2CE). 

Successful applicants will hold, or be close to obtaining (having submitted their dissertation), a PhD in economics or ecological economics. Applicants from physics, engineering and mathematics are also welcome, provided that you are available to take selected economics modules at the University of Leeds. They will have experience with formal modelling (particularly, input-output analysis, and/or stock-flow consistent models, and/or system dynamics, and/or agent-based models) and coding in R, and/or Matlab, and/or Python or similar languages or environments. Candidates with knowledge of heterodox economics are particularly encouraged.

Applicants should be willing to work using a variety of software and research tools and to travel, when required, for national and international meetings.
