27 February 2015

The Departmental Junior Job Market search is now completed. We are pleased to announce that we have hired two new lecturers who will join the Department in this capacity next academic year: Attila Lindner and Michela Tincani.

Attila Lindner is a labour economist and his research interests span minimum wages, job search, unemployment benefits and labour supply.  To study those topics, Attila has used data from Hungary, Poland and the United States.  Attila will receive his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley and holds degrees from Corvinus University and the Central European University.

Michela Tincani is a labour economist with interests in the economics of education, non-cognitive skills and the gender wage gap.  She received her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania and studied previously at Luiss University and Bocconi University.  Michela has been a post-doctoral research fellow at UCL, a research affiliate with the Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice (CeMMAP) and the Centre for the Evaluation of Development Policies (EDePO) at the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS).

This has been a very successful hiring process and we would like to thank everybody for attending the talks and contributing to make the whole process a success. Last but not least, the Department would like to thank Aureo de Paula who has run the hiring process efficiently and with an extremely positive attitude.
