The Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology (DAERS) in the College of Agriculture at Auburn University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in Agricultural Trade Policy and Marketing Economics. The planned start date for the position is August 2023. This position is a 9-month tenure-track, appointment at the rank of assistant professor. The allocation of effort of this position is 40% teaching and 60% research.

Requirements: Ph.D. in applied economics, economics, agribusiness, agricultural economics, marketing, business economics, international trade, or a closely related field at the time employment begins. Successful candidates are expected to have the potential for excellence in research and have a dedicated interest in high quality teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Although prior research and/or training in agricultural issues is preferred, full consideration will be given to well-trained trade economists without this background as long as their future work will focus primarily on agriculture. The successful candidate must meet eligibility requirements for work in the United States at the time the appointment is scheduled to begin and continue working legally for the term of employment.

Research: The successful candidate will develop an innovative research program that focuses on agricultural trade policy and food/agricultural markets. A portion of this research program will address current agricultural trade issues on a regional and national basis, with the goal of guiding stakeholders and policy makers. The successful applicant will work with faculty across disciplines to study issues related to agricultural trade and markets, with the goal of regularly publishing in reputable national and international peer-reviewed journals and obtaining external funding. This position will contribute to the University and College's strategic visions through excellence in graduate education, innovative partnerships, community engagement, entrepreneurship, and world-class research efforts.

Teaching: The teaching requirement for this position is three courses per year. Course load will include an undergraduate agricultural policy and trade class. Other courses may include an introductory issues course or graduate instruction based on departmental needs and the successful candidate’s expertise. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the department’s teaching programs through teaching, mentoring, and directing theses and research projects.
