Postdoctoral Positions in Matching Markets

Two postdoctoral positions are available at the Department of Industrial Engineering of Universidad de Chile (Santiago) starting in April 2016, or by mutual agreement at any date thereafter. The positions emerge as a joint venture between the Institute for Market Imperfections and Public Policy, led by professor Juan Escobar, and the Millennium Nucleus Information and Coordination in Networks, led by professor Jose Correa.

The selected candidates will devote fully to research, spending a significant fraction of their time working on a large scale and high impact project related to matching markets and market design. The appointment will be for a period of 12 months, renewable by mutual agreement, with a gross monthly salary of 1.700.000 CLP. Shorter periods may also be considered. Travel support is available.

Applicants must hold a recent (or be close to completion) PhD in Computer Science, Economics, Operations Research or related fields and should have provable research expertise in game theory. Knowledge and background on matching theory is a plus though not a requirement. Applications including curriculum vitae, list of publications, research plan (1 page), and names of references with their e-mail addresses, should be sent electronically to Jose Correa or Juan Escobar. To ensure full consideration the application should be sent before the deadline of January 15th, 2016. Late applications will be considered on a case by case basis.
