The University of Delaware is seeking applicants to fill a tenure track appointment in its Marine Policy Program in the School of Marine Science and Policy. Rank is open but priority will be given to hiring at the level of Assistant Professor. We broadly seek candidates with strong training/experience in policy analysis and management applied to ocean and coastal resource use. A PhD in economics, public policy, or other related field is required.

Areas of interest include bioeconomic modeling, coastal management, maritime transport, offshore energy, ocean governance, and climate change. We have an especially strong interest in fisheries economics and management. Training/experience in the economics of natural resources and energy and/or in quantitative methods in policy analysis is desirable. An interest in cross-disciplinary research and an ability to work at the science-policy interface is also advantageous.

The successful candidate will be expected to publish in top field journals, raise external research funds, teach at the graduate level, and advise Masters and PhD students. There may be opportunities to teach at the undergraduate level. Current teaching load is one-course a semester. Marine Policy faculty members typically have joint appointments in other University departments.
