JDD Job Market training

The French association of development economists (AFEDEV) notably contributes to the employment promotion of young researchers in academic institutions, either in universities or research institutes, at the national and international levels. Competition for permanent positions, tenured positions, and post-doctoral positions is increasing and recruitment meetings require a specific training.

To help PhD candidates to prepare their future job market campaign, the AFEDEV organizes a job market training on September 28, 2023 at the Université Paris-Dauphine.

The job market training will consist in presentations of 40 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions. At the end of the day PhD candidates will then attend 10-minute bi-lateral meetings with several professors to discuss more in depth their presentation.

Candidates who plan to apply to academic positions during the year 2023-2024, internationally or in France, are invited to submit their CV and job market paper using this link by the 28th of August the latest. Applicants must be member of the AFEDEV (membership here). No participation fees required. The AFEDEV scientific committee will inform applicants about the admission decision by the 11th of September.

For senior participants and some PhD candidates transport costs can be reimbursed upon request.
