Full Text of JOE Listing:

The University of Pittsburgh’s Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences is offering a postdoctoral fellowship in applied micro-economics to be housed in the Department of Economics for the academic year 2016-2017. Fellows will teach one course each semester, complete scholarly work, and participate in the academic and intellectual communities of the Economics Department and the Dietrich School. Priority will be given to candidates whose teaching and/or research activities support the University’s broad commitment to initiatives in the area of sustainability – in terms of either topic or methodology. Within the Dietrich School, rich opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange are available in a number of vibrant multidisciplinary programs.

Fellows receive an annual stipend of $45,000, a $3,500 annual research/travel allowance, and a $1,500 one-time moving allowance. Fellows may apply for an additional one-year renewal. The University provides a relatively comprehensive package of fringe benefits, including medical insurance, participant-paid dental and vision insurance, life insurance, eligibility to participate in the University’s tuition scholarships program, and a retirement plan allowing personal tax deferral to TIAA/CREF with no University match. Fellows have access to additional benefits which currently include: University libraries and recreational facilities, computing and networking services, and fare-free public transportation.

We invite applications from qualified candidates who have satisfactorily completed all requirements for the PhD degree, including any oral defense, by June 1, 2016. Individuals who graduated before September 1, 2014 are ineligible. Any offer of employment is contingent upon having the PhD degree in-hand prior to the appointment, and acquiring all proper visas (for international fellows).
