The Department of Economics of the Bryan School of Business & Economics at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Associate/Assistant Professor level to begin in Fall 2017. New and prospective PhDs, senior Assistant Professors and current Associate Professors are encouraged to apply. For senior applicants with a strong research record, appointment with tenure is possible. Candidates are sought with expertise in applied microeconomics fields listed above.

The research focus of our faculty is on analysis and policy in microeconomic fields such as technology/innovation, environmental, and health. Our department offers undergraduate degrees, an M.A. in Applied Economics, and a Ph.D. Our M.A. program offers concentrations in Data Analytics and Policy Analysis. Additionally, the department contributes to both the undergraduate business core and the MBA core. While we will consider strong candidates in any of our research fields, we have a strong preference for candidates who can teach macroeconomics at the undergraduate and masters’ levels and who can mentor PhD students in the field of technology/innovation. Interviews will be held at the ASSA meetings in Chicago. Junior candidates should have a Ph.D. in Economics by August 2017. UNCG is an equal opportunity/equal access employer.
