The Department of Economics is actively involved since many years in the international academic job market to hire its faculty and has been the first at Bocconi University to introduce tenure track positions and Assistant Professorships.
Excellence in research is the criterion that underpins the department’s strategy when selecting and hiring new faculty members, together with a strong focus on teaching activities.
Over time the Department has built an excellent track record in attracting top junior and senior scholars. The high number of European Research Council grants awarded to these scholars bears testament to their excellence, and it is also thanks to them that Bocconi is now one of the top recipients of ERC grants in Economics in Europe.
In this year Junior Job Market, we have hired Marta Prato, Rafael Jimenez, Sarah Eichmeyer and Erika Deserranno.
