Professor Carvalho to join EEA
Director of the Janeway Institute, Professor Vasco Carvalho has joined the European Economic Association Council for a term of five years.
Beginning his stint on the EEA council in 2024, Professor of Macroeconomics in the Faculty of Economics Vasco Carvalho, a fellow of Jesus College, says “I'm excited and very happy by the trust of colleagues, since this was a vote open to all members of the association.”
He explains that the position is related to his research at Cambridge and cumulated experience with the postdoctoral program.
“One of my primary objectives is to take stock of the rapidly shifting postdoctoral landscape in Economics in Europe in order to better support their inclusion in the profession, incentivise mobility and access to resources plus professional networks around Europe and help the diffusion of best practices across European institutions,” he says.
