Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy at the University of Virginia seeks to hire an economist (at the tenured associate or full professor level) with expertise in the analysis of public policy to begin in the fall of 2013. A secondary appointment in the Economics Department in the College of Arts and Sciences is possible.

Successful candidates must have a distinguished academic record appropriate for a tenured appointment. Candidates must have the ability to teach required courses on economics and public policy and statistics and research methods for MPP students as well as courses for undergraduate majors in public policy and leadership. The search is open to candidates from any field of economics who are conducting substantial and high-quality research on aspects of domestic or global public policy.

Built upon the strong foundation of one of the nation's top public universities, the Batten School combines rigorous training in policy analysis with a unique emphasis on the acquisition of leadership skills and an understanding of the changing context of public policy in the 21st century. The core faculty includes economists, political scientists, social and organizational psychologists, and historians, enriched by professors of practice who bring real-world policymaking expertise to the classroom. The School currently offers the MPP degree, as well as an accelerated MPP program for top UVA undergraduates, and an undergraduate major in public policy and leadership. The School also offers dual degree programs with the Darden School of Business (MPP/ MBA), the School of Law (MPP/ JD) and other UVA professional schools. Last fall, the Batten School moved into its permanent home, Garrett Hall, which underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and is located adjacent to Thomas Jefferson's historic Lawn. The School is made possible by a $100 million endowment gift from the late Frank Batten, Sr.
