University of Cologne is advertising for market designers

The Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Cologne seeks to appoint one full Professor (W3), and one assistant Professor with tenure track (W1), in Economics: Behavior & Design

The positions are created as a result of the University's successful application in the excellence initiative of the German government, and will be integrated into the University’s key profile area “Behavioral Economic Engineering and Social Cognition”.
In recent years, the University of Cologne has built up expertise both in Behavioral and Experimental Economics as well as in Social Cognition. In parallel to these two positions in economics, the University of Cologne is hiring two new professors in psychology (social and economic cognition). The successful candidates are expected to contribute to the further expansion of this research area.

For the present positions, we seek candidates with an economics or related background, a research focus in behavioral and experimental economics, design economics, or related fields, and an interest to connect to social cognition research. Successful candidates will have demonstrated excellence in research as well as teaching.

Salaries are based on the German W-scheme, with supplementary allowances competitive with international salaries, contingent on academic achievements and teaching experience. There is no teaching load initially, but some teaching is welcome.Candidates are expected to be willing to learn the German language.

The University of Cologne is one of Germany’s largest universities. The Faculties offer B.A., M.A. and doctoral degrees. Courses are taught either in English or German.
The University of Cologne is an equal opportunity employer in compliance with the German disability laws. Women and persons with disabilities are therefore strongly encouraged to apply.

"No later than 30th October 2012" seems to ask for some experience in time travel, too.
