Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Department of Economics in the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies invites applications for two positions at the Advanced Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level to begin August 2023. One of these positions could come with an appointment to an endowed Chair. The endowed Chair provides funds that may support various projects, including hosting an annual lecture series, research conferences, graduate student research, travel for scholarly purposes, and other research-related activities. Ideally, we would like to hire two well-established scholars who together would embark on cutting edge research and interact with one or more of the currently existing research centers within the School. Hiring such closely tied researchers, however, is not a requirement for these positions. We are especially interested in applicants whose research interests might overlap with the Georgia Policy Labs, the Experimental Economics Center, the Georgia Health Policy Center, the Urban Studies Institute, the Center for State and Local Finance, the Fiscal Research Center, or the International Center for Public Policy. In a separate search the School is seeking to hire a senior researcher in Data Analytics who could complement the activities of these two positions.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in economics or a closely related discipline. The ideal applicant will have an accomplished record of publication, external funding, leadership in the field, and the ability to mentor graduate students. Candidates will be considered until the positions are filled.

The Andrew Young School is ranked among the top 20 policy schools in Policy Analysis. The school houses five academic departments (including Economics and Public Management and Policy) and outstanding research centers in health policy, public finance and education policy, among others. Applicants should send a cover letter, CV and the names of three references through the AEA web: https://aeaweb.org/joe/ No paper applications will be accepted unless specifically solicited. This position is subject to budgetary approval. Candidates will be considered until the position is filled. Candidates must be eligible to work in the United States. At time of offer, a background check is required.

Georgia State University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate against applicants due to race, ethnicity, gender, veteran status, or on the basis of disability or any other federal, state, or local protected class. As a university with a diverse student body, we encourage applications from women and minorities.
