SFS Post-Doc Position Available

UPDATED OCTOBER 26, 2021: The position has been filled.

An SFS Advisory Editor position is available for the next academic year; the start date is flexible.  The position is a particularly good fit for finance/economics post-docs or late-stage PhD students.  The primary task is to provide editorial support in the review process and requires about 10 hours per week with a minimum commitment for one year (or preferably for two years). The position allows working closely with the RFS/RAPS/RCFS editors and for ample time to continue work on one’s own research.  Salary is competitive.  The position will remain open until filled.  To apply, please submit a cover letter, graduate course work, any working papers, and three letters of recommendation to Jan Sokolowsky.
