His work is primarily motivated by developing deep theoretical insights into important practical topics. At CERGE-EI, he has been an Assistant Professor since September 2019 and Academic Director of the International Economic and Finance program since 2020. He is a researcher at the Economics Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences and a member of the Deputy Prime Minister’s "Czech Digital Team".


Prof. Ole Jann does an excellent job on his Micro course. He builds a logical bridge between elegant economic theories and essential real-life applications. Fortunately for me, I work in the same area of research and was lucky enough to have Ole as a coauthor!”

Pavel Ilinov, CERGE-EI PhD student and junior researcher

“Undoubtedly, Prof. Ole Jann delivers the best micro course in CERGE-EI. His excellence in engaging students and explaining quite technical things in interesting ways surprises many students. As his research assistant, I also want to highlight how enjoyable it is to cooperate with him.”

Arseniy Scherbov, CERGE-EI PhD student

Ole Jann contributes to CERGE-EI above and beyond being a great teacher and researcher. Our group of young theorists can always rely on him. We are lucky that he is a part of our community.”
