Full Text of JOE Listing:
As part of the University of Connecticut's multi-year hiring plan to improve its international prominence as a research institution, the Department of Economics seeks to fill five tenure-track faculty positions beginning August, 2013. Responsibilities include developing and/or maintaining a strong research program in the appropriate subfields and teaching/advising graduate and undergraduate students.

Four of these positions are at the Storrs campus. The first is in Health Economics at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor levels. The successful candidate will be expected to obtain external funding to conduct research in health economics and help guide research efforts in this field. The second position is at the Assistant Professor level in Macroeconomics and Monetary Economics; the third is at the Assistant Professor level in Renewable Resources and Conservation or Environmental Economics.

The fourth is a joint position at the Assistant Professor level with the Institute of Latino, Caribbean and Latin American Studies (El Instituto). The successful candidate will have the potential for research excellence in Economics and Latino and Latin American Studies and be willing to contribute to the development of economics courses appropriate for the interdisciplinary Latino and Latin American Studies program. Candidates interested in income/racial/gender inequality, economic growth, health disparities, or transnational migration are especially encouraged to apply. Teaching responsibilities at the graduate and undergraduate levels will be in both the Department of Economics and El Instituto. Tenure home will be in the Department of Economics.

The fifth position is at the Assistant Professor level at the Avery Point campus for an environmental/natural resource economist with marine and/or maritime interests who will work closely with the Maritime Studies Program. The successful candidate will have an academic appointment as a full member of the University-wide Economics Department and will be primarily assigned to the Avery Point campus. S/he will teach undergraduate courses in the Economics and Maritime Studies programs and will also have the opportunity (and be encouraged) to participate in graduate teaching and training at the Storrs campus.

Minimum qualifications: completion of all requirements for a Ph.D. in Economics or related fields by August 22, 2013; excellence in research in appropriate subfields; and ability to develop courses for appropriate curriculum. Equivalent foreign degrees are acceptable.

Preferred qualifications: grantsmanship, communication skills, evidence of integrating technology into instruction, and the ability to contribute through research, teaching, and/or public engagement to the diversity and excellence of the learning experience.

These are nine-month, tenure-track positions. Salary and rank will be commensurate with background, qualifications, and experience.

At the University of Connecticut, our commitment to excellence is complemented by our commitment to building a culturally diverse community. We actively encourage women, people with disabilities, and members of minority groups to apply. The University of Connecticut is an EEO/AA employer.
