Full Text of JOE Listing:

The National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), founded in 1997 as a stand-alone national graduate university focused on policy studies, aims to cultivate public policy leaders and professionals who will play key roles in democratic governance. We are international in our faculty, our student body and our outlook. We are currently seeking candidates for positions to start in Fall 2016 (exact timing is negotiable).

We are interested in scholars who are conducting research in applied economics fields and can teach graduate students, most of whom are mid-career public administrators from a variety of countries. We will consider highly-qualified candidates who show record or promise of scholarly productivity and publications in high-quality academic journals. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Economics or one firmly expected by August 2016.

Appointees will be required to teach 6 to 8 units (3-4 half courses, each offered for 15 weeks) per year in English and supervise masters and Ph.D. students. An appointee is also expected to conduct high level research, contribute administratively, and compete for external funds.
