Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Department of Economics will have an opening for a Post Doctoral Research Associate or more senior researcher/Visiting Associate Research Scholar starting September 2015. Primary criteria are the quality of the applicant's research and interest/experience in microeconomic theory.
The Post Doctoral Research Associate position provides an outstanding opportunity for independent research as well as opportunities for collaboration with Princeton faculty and graduate students. Post Doctoral Research Associates may participate in the University's teaching program if mutually agreed and with the approval of the Dean of the Faculty. Post Doctoral Research Associates are expected to participate actively in the intellectual activities of Princeton University. Applicants should have received a Ph.D. within the last 3 years (or by September 2015). Appointment will be for one academic year with possibility for renewal given satisfactory performance and continued funding availability. Applicants should include resume, two letters of recommendation and one or at most two research papers.
Visiting Associate Research Scholars spend an academic year in residence at Princeton. They are given office space and the opportunity to pursue their own research on any topic in microeconomic theory. Visiting Associate Research Scholars may participate in the University's teaching program if mutually agreed and with the approval of the Dean of the Faculty. Visiting Associate Research Scholars must be employed at an institution other than Princeton during their visit. Compensation is usually based on the salary in effect at the Visiting Associate Research Scholar's home institution, and depends on the level of support the Visiting Associate Research Scholar will receive from his or her home institution during the visit. Applicants should have a doctorate or equivalent degree. The program is open to all regardless of citizenship, but it does not support work toward the completion of a degree. Applicants should include a c.v., a brief (750 word) research statement, and contact information for two references.
Applications will be reviewed beginning January 15, 2015; applications will be accepted until position is filled.
