Two Economists / Postdocs (f/m/d)
for the ifo Center for the Economics of Education
To strengthen our team, we are looking for two economists (f/m/d) at the postdoc level for up to six years, starting in the next academic year or earlier.
The team led by Prof. Ludger Woessmann studies the determinants and consequences of education from an economic perspective. How can the state empower people to benefit from the potentials of an open society? To answer this question, the team investigates how education policy can contribute to prosperity and equality of opportunity. Join us in this task!
