The School of Economic Sciences (SES) within the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences (CAHNRS) and the Paul G. Allen School for Global Heath (SGH) in the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) at Washington State University are seeking a dynamic, motivated, problem-solving leader and researcher. Applications are invited for a full-time, 9-month tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level to begin August 16, 2022 (or as negotiated) at the Pullman, Washington campus. The successful applicant is expected to develop internationally recognized research and teaching programs focused on the economics of health and development. SES and SGH have developed a strong foundation for research collaboration among health scientists and economists, with broad international connections and ongoing research programs in East and West Africa, South America, and elsewhere. Economic analysis is crucial to the goals of both schools and is central to the ongoing collaborative research programs. With this position, WSU will strengthen its commitment to integrated economics and policy studies focusing on global health and economic development in the two Schools. The reporting and tenure home will be the School of Economic Sciences. This position is primarily research oriented with reduced teaching responsibilities. The successful candidate will develop an internationally recognized economics research program in the area of health and economics. Opportunities for emphasis lie primarily around the intersection of human and/or animal health and economic development. Teaching responsibilities include one to two economics courses per year in the successful applicant’s area of expertise in the SES and the SGH. The successful applicant will cooperate with internal and external research colleagues to identify research priorities, conduct collaborative projects, and disseminate results by publishing in appropriate peer-reviewed journals. Other duties include securing extramural funds from state, regional and national grant sources to support the program; mentoring and advising graduate students; and participating as appropriate in committees, instruction, and other activities of SES, SGH, and WSU. Required: Earned Ph.D. in Economics or a related discipline at date of hire. Screening of application materials begins December 1, 2021, and will continue until the position is filled.
