Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management
SC Johnson College of Business and College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
Cornell University
Anticipated Start Date: July 1, 2018

Responsibilities: The successful candidate is expected to establish a distinguished program of research (50%) and teaching (50%) in the field of development economics. Candidates working in any area of development economics (including applications of behavioral economics and/or field experiments) will be considered with particular attention paid to those with strong applied econometric skills. The successful candidate is expected to publish in top field and general economics journals, contribute to problem solving research consistent with Cornell's land grant mission, generate external contract and research grant funding, and supervise graduate students. Candidates will be evaluated based on the quality of their research and research potential, teaching potential, letters of recommendation and the criteria established in the position description.

Opportunities: The Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management is one of the three schools under the newly established Cornell SC Johnson College of Business as well as a unit within the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The school houses a top-ranked undergraduate business program as well as highly regarded graduate programs that award Ph.D., M.S. and M.P.S. degrees. Areas of faculty research include environmental, energy and resource economics, food and agricultural economics, international and development economics, and various management fields. Considerable opportunities exist to collaborate with faculty within the Dyson School as well as elsewhere within Cornell including the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, the Department of Economics and the Department of Policy Analysis and Management. The faculty member would also belong to the SC Johnson College of Business' Applied Economics and Policy Area, which cuts across the three Schools and includes other prominent scholars. While the main responsibilities of this position will be on the Ithaca campus, opportunities might exist to teach in the College's other programs in Ithaca, and in our New York City programs (including at Cornell's brand new Roosevelt Island campus).

Qualifications: A Ph.D. in agricultural economics, economics, or related discipline is required. Preference may be given to individuals with demonstrated research competence and teaching expertise.

Application: Electronically submit via Academic Jobs Online, with your letter of application summarizing research and teaching interests; a curriculum vitae; a current research paper and any other publications; copies of teaching evaluations if available; and three reference letters.

Salary: Competitive with peer institutions and commensurate with qualifications and experience. An attractive fringe benefit package is included.

Closing Date: The search committee will begin reviewing applications immediately; the search will remain open until the position is filled.
