Urgent: POST-DOCTORAL POSITION (LEDi: Laboratoire d'Economie de Dijon)
The LEDi (Laboratoire d’Economie de Dijon, UMR 6307 CNRS), the laboratory for economic research of the University of Burgundy, based at Dijon, is currently offering a postdoctoral position for a one-year period. The project is funded by the Regional Council of Burgundy-Franche-Comté in the context of the LabEx LipSTIC, a national cluster of excellence regrouping researchers of several disciplines in order to produce new knowledge to contribute to the prevention and treatment of cancer (http://www.labex-lipstic.fr/).
The LEDi is structured around three teams working on health economics; economic geography, urban economics and environment; as well as monetary and financial economics (more information is available at http://ledi.u-bourgogne.fr/). In order to enhance internal scientific interactions as well as emerging research themes, the LEDi has recently launched an inter-team research axis on economics of innovation, a field underlying several research interests of LEDi’s members. This postdoctoral position is one of the initiatives of this research axis.
The postdoc is aimed at producing an economic analysis of R&D in biomedicine and more precisely of R&D efforts on lipid-based technologies used in the fight against cancer. Within the LEDi the postdoctoral researcher will mainly work with innovation economists and health economists. She/he will also work with researchers attached to the LabEx LipSTIC.
We are looking for candidates having expertise in economics of innovation and quantitative methods, and desiring to develop applications on the field of health innovation. English communication skills, great autonomy, and teamwork skills are welcome. Candidates should have already defended their PhD thesis.
The postdoctoral researcher will receive a net salary of circa 2000 euros per month, and shall start by November 1st 2016. Applicants should send a CV and a motivation letter to Ivan Ledezma (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Christine Peyron (email@example.com).
