The Department of Economics in the Tippie College of Business at the University of Iowa invites applications for one or more tenured faculty positions at the level of experienced Associate Professor or Full Professor with tenure starting August 2023. In addition to the six existing faculty members in applied microeconomics, econometrics, and experimental economics we plan on a robust hiring initiative over the next five years. Beyond outstanding scholarship, the ideal candidates will play a central role in hiring new members for our applied microeconomics group, leading the applied microeconomics group, and mentoring PhD students and junior faculty. We are open to empirical work on a broad variety of applied microeconomic topics; areas we would considered include labor, health, education, public finance, the economics of organizations, experimental economics, and empirical IO. We are primarily interested in the quality of scholarship and leadership an individual will bring to our department. Find more information and apply at https://teach.tippie.uiowa.edu.
