Statement on a joint European Economics Job Market
A joint statement from the European Economic Association (EEA), the Royal Economic Society (RES), and the Asociación Española de Economía (AEE)-Spanish Economic Association concerning the European Economics Job Market
The EEA, RES and AEE are committed to providing a platform to bring together institutions and postgraduate economic students seeking to develop a career in economics. We are therefore pleased to announce a new partnership to hold a joint European Economics Job Market from 2019.
The first joint European Economics Job Market will be held in Rotterdam in December 2019, co-sponsored by EEA, RES and AEE. This meeting will provide a forum for postgraduates to be interviewed by recruiting institutions from across Europe. The three associations hope to continue this partnership in future years, with the December 2020 meeting to be held in Nottingham, UK.
This joint meeting will build on and supersede the individual job markets that the three associations are organising in 2018. The inaugural European Job Market sponsored by the EEA took place in Naples on 6-7 December 2018, the AEE Job Market was held in Madrid 13-15 December 2018, and the final RES PhD Meeting and Job Market in its current form will take place on 18-19 December 2018 at Westminster Business School, London.
All three associations believe that a pan-European job market will expand and enhance the opportunities for both participating candidates and institutions.
A job market for PhD economists has existed in Spain since 1984 and over years it attracted students and institutions beyond Spain. The Asociación Española de Economía (AEE)-Spanish Economic Association is very happy to join the EEA and RES to make a pan-European job market a reality.
