The [Dynare](https://www.dynare.org/) project at
[CEPREMAP](http://www.cepremap.fr/en/) is hiring a research software engineer.
Dynare is a leading economic modeling software that can handle a wide class of
economic models, in particular dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE)
models. Dynare is widely used in the academic world for research and teaching
purposes, and in various public and private bodies for performing policy
analysis exercises and as a support tool for forecasting exercises.
The offered job consists in:
- designing algorithms, or adapting existing ones, for solving a wide array of
problems that arise when solving or estimating economic models
- writing the software implementation of these algorithms
- fixing software bugs
- interacting with users on the various user support channels
- giving training sessions at the annual Dynare Summer School (and possibly
during other events)
The ideal candidate would have skills in the following fields:
- macroeconomic modeling (in particular DSGE models)
- econometrics (in particular time series and Bayesian techniques)
- applied mathematics (especially numerical linear algebra)
- computer science (basic algorithmics)
- computer programming
Experience in all these fields is not a strict requirement, but the candidate
is expected to display strong abilities to learn autonomously in the areas
where he/she lacks knowledge.
Since Dynare is written in MATLAB, Octave, C++ and Julia, some experience with
at least one of these programming languages (or with another scientific
programming language, such as Fortran, Python or R) is a requirement. A
familiarity with Git (the distributed version-control system) is an asset,
since that technology is used for managing the source code of Dynare.
Holding a PhD in economics, computer science or applied mathematics is an asset
but is not required. Depending on the candidate’s profile, a given percentage
of the work time could be dedicated to the pursuit of his/her personal research
projects.
The job is based in Paris, France. The CEPREMAP premises are on the same campus
as [École Normale Supérieure](http://www.ens.fr/en) (campus Jourdan) and [Paris
School of Economics](http://parisschoolofeconomics.eu/en/), which provide a
stimulating intellectual environment, with many world-class researchers in
economics on-site and the possibility of attending several research seminars in
economics.
Knowledge of French is not a requirement.
The position is a fixed-term one year contract, starting in fall 2019. It may
be renewed or converted into a permanent position, depending on the direction
taken by the project.
Salary depends on qualification and experience.
Applications, with a resume, an example computer program and possibly a
research paper, should be sent to:
