Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Economics Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a position in development and health economics at the Assistant Professor tenure-track level (JPF00938). The department has a preference for a candidate who does research at the intersection of development and health in a developing country setting; however, candidates in the health field at large are welcome to apply, especially those who focus on inequality and health disparities.

The candidate is expected to participate actively in the campus initiative in global and community health.
