It is not yet online, but the University of Paris-Sorbonne is looking for a Full Professor in the Economics of Organization (see the ad text below). Importantly, proficiency in French is not a requirement … “upfront,” at least.

Very apropos (if I may) the Department of Strategic Management and Globalization will be hiring one assistant professor and three associate professors in “strategic and international management” over the next few months. Proficiency in French, or Danish for that matter, is not required at all. The job ads are here. Or, contact me directly on

Economics of Organization/ Public economics

The University of Paris (Pantheon-Sorbonne) has an opening for full professorship in economics of organization/public economics. Priority will be given to candidates with substantial publications in international journals, mainly in the field of organization theory, including public organizations, with a special interest for the embeddedness of organizations in their institutional environment. Candidates with acknowledged expertise in the economics of infrastructures will also receive particular attention. The selected candidate will benefit from an  exceptional research environment (he/she will be affiliated to the Centre d’Economie de la Sorbonne -CES), from a pool of potential Ph D students of very high quality, and from substantial research opportunities. (S)he will also benefit from the exceptional position of Paris at the international research crossroad. Speaking French is not compulsory upfront although some rudiments would help. However, the candidate is expected to develop French proficiency in the future so as to be able to teach at the advanced undergraduate level. The deadline is not yet known, but should be posted soon on the following site: http://centredeconomiesorbonne.univparis1. fr/bandeau-haut/recrutement/. Seminars will be organized with selected candidates in the first months of 2012, with a final decision expected in April. For detailed information, contact Claude Ménard (
