Stony Brook University
Stony Brook University seeks nominations and confidential expressions of interest in the search for the inaugural Endowed Economics Chair. Reporting to the Dean of the College of Arts of Sciences, the Chair will have the opportunity to grow the Department of Economics, known nationally and internationally for its excellence in Game Theory and Microeconomic Theory, Macroeconomics, and Applied Econometrics. A transformational gift of $25 million from one of the Department’s esteemed graduates will give the Chair the opportunity to strengthen the national and global relevance of the Department’s research mission, particularly in the areas of Applied Economics and Public Policy, to attract and diversify faculty researchers, to strengthen gender and ethnic diversity in the PhD program, and to build and encourage interdisciplinary research collaborations. Ultimately, the new Chair is expected to elevate the Department’s standing in national rankings.
