Georgetown University's Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service aims to recruit four research-oriented economists for core faculty positions in the School of Foreign Service in Qatar, as part of a major expansion of curricular and research programs. Core faculty positions are full-time positions which carry the job security and commitment to academic freedom associated with tenure-track appointments. We also solicit applications for visiting and visiting research professor positions. Visiting positions are 1 or 2 year appointments. Elements of the research program in economics at SFS-Q include a regular seminar series, a research mentoring program that brings senior scholars chosen by incumbent faculty to Doha for brief visits, a visiting scholar program that supports more extensive involvement by leading scholars, periodic post-doctoral research workshops, opportunities to spend time at the Economics Department on our main campus in Washington, DC (, and regular research semesters. For additional details regarding programmatic support for economics faculty research at SFS-Qatar please see The normal teaching load is 2-2 for core faculty and visiting faculty (entry-level core faculty appointments ordinarily include teaching load reductions during the first year). Up to two positions may be designated as visiting research professorships, which carry appropriately light negotiated teaching loads. We seek applications from colleagues at all ranks in economic development, international economics, political economy, and related fields (e.g., energy, environmental, resource security, etc.). We are particularly interested in hearing from colleagues who want to establish research teams. Applicants at advanced rank must have substantial research accomplishments and evidence of ambitious ongoing research agendas; entry-level applicants must have exceptional promise of future research productivity. All applicants must have outstanding teaching credentials. Compensation and expatriate benefits packages are excellent and SFS-Q provides generous research support and support for conference travel; these appointments include generous start-up research funds.
