Full Text of JOE Listing:

Jinhe Center was founded in Xian Jiaotong University (Top 10 in China) by Yusen Kwoh (Chicago) and Chuntien Hu (Princeton) in 1997 to introduce modern economics curriculum into China, offering B.A, M.A. and PhD degrees in economics. Most teaching/advising works are delivered by American educated visiting faculty.

Jinhe Center is mandated by the University to assemble in one scoop (2-3 years) a first class, in-resident core team (10-15 economists) all from abroad. Existing visiting faculty will remain to ease teaching load and enrich research interactions for the incoming resident faculties. We are interested in all fields, including theoretical and applied micro, info / uncertainty, finance (theoretical), macro / money, international, econ history, math econ, IO / regulations, law & economics, public finance, labor and Bayesian econometrics.

Milton Friedman often said: Nothing is more practical than a good theory. We look for people sharing that philosophy; together we will build a preeminent economics program virtually from scratch.

Compensation will be internationally competitive, commensurate with qualifications.

Professors Kwoh (Center director) and Hu will attend Boston AEA 2015 Annual Meeting to meet with interested candidates. Please email cover letter, CV, research, references to or call 86-136-1920-3733.
