Jun.Prof. Dr. Jonas Dovern
Bergheimer Str. 58
I will take over the Chair for Statistics and Econometrics at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) at April 1, 2019. I am looking for two ambitious doctoral students in the areas of time series econometrics and applied macroeconometrics.
Please note that I do not supervise any Master or Bachelor theses during the winter term 2018/19.
I am now an Affiliate in the CESifo research network.
My research with Christopher Zuber on the impact of recessions on estimates of potential output is now available as a working paper.
My paper "Systematic Errors in Growth Expectations over the Business Cycle" (with Nils Jannsen) was published by the International Journal of Forecasting.
