Faculty III at the International Institute for Management and Economic Education (IIM) at Europa-Universität Flensburg seeks for immediate hire a

Research Assistant (d/m/w) in the Department of Pluralist Economics

for the promotion of young scientists with the aim of completing a doctorate, initially for a limited period of three years. There is a possibility of extension.

The department intends to increase the scope of the position should third-party funding become available.**** 

Thematic orientation

The Department of Pluralist Economics was founded in October 2021 and works on a broad range of topics using theories and methods from different economic and social science research paradigms. It is urgently desired that the future holder of this position collaborates with the departmental team to make a substantial contribution to the field of pluralist economics. Possible topics for the doctorate would include: 

  • Issues of socio-ecological transformations, especially in its international dimension and in relation to issues of global inequality
  • Comparative developmental dynamics in Europe and the world, especially the role of economic complexity and technological change, domestic and international institutions, and/or structural interdependencies
  • A critical-constructive examination of the topic area "post-growth,” especially from a global perspective
  • Foundational questions in the philosophy and sociology of pluralist economics
  • Empirical analyses of the status quo of economics, especially with regard to its plurality (qualitative and quantitative) 

Methodologically, both theoretical and empirical work are possible. If you are unsure whether your interests fit the research agenda of the department, please do not hesitate to consult the department homepage first and, in case of doubt, ask Claudius Gräbner-Radkowitsch directly. Interdisciplinary research approaches are explicitly welcome.


  • Teaching (2 SWS/semester hours per week) in the area of pluralist economics, foreseeably in IIM management courses
  • Carrying out an independent research project with the aim of obtaining the doctorate
  • Support the development, acquisition, and implementation of externally funded projects
  • Contribution to publications / academic articles
  • Presentation of research results at national and international congresses
  • Participation in academic self-governance and help with examinations within the working area for this position; other academic services as needed

Your profile:

  • An academic degree (master's degree or equivalent) with a minimum grade of “good” in economics, the social sciences, or a discipline relevant to the department's broader research agenda
  • Very good knowledge of English (level C1) and good knowledge of German (level B2)
  • Willingness to further educate yourself in content and methodology and the desire to make a substantial academic contribution in the field of Plural Economics.

In case the desired dissertation project involves computational aspects, knowledge of the programming languages Python and/or R is an advantage; willingness to acquire or expand this knowledge is expected.
