Job market there is for econophysicists in academia

  1. Aug 26, 2007 #1
    Hi all,

    I am just wondering how much of a job market there is for econophysicists in academia, as compared to say theoretical condensed matter physicists. Is it easier to get a job? How much so?

    Also, what are some good schools for econophysics research?

    You might find some other sites of activity from [PLAIN]http://econophysics.econ.univpm.it/[/URL]

    You might want to be aware of [URL]http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v441/n7094/abs/441686a.html[/URL]
    (again from the Wikipedia article on [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Econophysics[/url] )
