The Center for Research in Economics (CEREC) of the UCLouvain Saint-Louis (Brussels) is pleased to offer:

1 Post-doc fellowship,

Starting October 1 2019 (at the latest), in the context of a large ARC project on social and economic network formation under limited farsightedness. Professors Ana Mauleon and Vincent Vannetelbosch (UCLouvain) are the head the project.


The global objective of the project is to deepen our understanding of social and economic networks by bridging the gap between the social networks approach and the Industrial Organization (IO) approach to network economics. We will investigate how network formation theory can be enriched with insights from behavioral theories of limited cognition. Topics to be investigated include: (a) network formation, (b) behavior on networks, (c) networks in the knowledge economy, (d) group formation.


In order to be considered for the position, candidates must hold a PhD in Economics, with a genuine interest in economic theory and a good command of Mathematics and/or applied methods.


The successful candidate will actively participate to the scientific life of CEREC and benefit from CEREC’s research facilities ( ).


He/she will earn a net monthly salary of about €2300 and will be covered by the Belgian health insurance system. The fellowship is for one year.


Candidates should send their application at the following address:


By means of a single PDF file named "fellowship-economics-NAME OF CANDIDATE.pdf" containing (a) a letter of motivation, (b) a curriculum vitae. Two letters of recommendation should be sent separately to the same email-address by the letter writers.
