The Department of Economics at Universidad de los Andes invites applications for a Post-doctoral Fellow position in History of Economic Thought, beginning in the Spring or Fall term of 2017. We are searching for candidates with a clear research agenda and a solid formation in the History of Economics, Economic Methodology and/or Economic Philosophy, and a background in Economics. Candidates must be willing to design and teach courses on the topic with special emphasis in Economic Theory and its developments.

Post-doctoral fellows will be appointed for one to two years, with a competitive salary, a modest teaching load, and the possibility (upon evaluation) of starting a tenure-track position after completing the post-doc. Research and teaching in History of Economic Thought are a priority at the Department since its foundation. Courses are required for all students, from undergraduates to PhDs. Los Andes has the best Economics department in Colombia and ranks among the best in Latin America. Proficiency in Spanish is not required.

Please submit via JOE: a cover letter specifically explaining your interest in the position and Los Andes, a resume, one research paper, and three letters of recommendation. You will also be asked to clarify whether you are willing to start in the Spring and/or Fall.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and arrangements for interviews will be made individually. Applications must be received no later than November 18 (PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS EARLIER THAN MOST DEADLINES). Incomplete applications will not be considered.
