Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Smith Institute for Political Economy and Philosophy at Chapman University seeks up to three two-year research associates, beginning in August 2024. Candidates in the disciplines of economics and philosophy are particularly welcome, but we will seriously consider any candidate interested in pursuing work that cuts across disciplines of social sciences and humanities more broadly.

The Smith Institute houses scholars from economics, literature, film and philosophy. Its mission is to reintegrate the study of economics and the humanities, and to combine undergraduate education and research as a discovery process. Members of the institute are encouraged to pursue these aims by teaching innovative classes.

We seek candidates with the ability to generate and publish research of the highest quality. Research associates will also be expected to teach one course per year. Candidates should have a PhD in economics, philosophy, or other relevant field prior to beginning the position. Applicants must address in their cover letter how their teaching and research fit with the mission of the Smith Institute and the value that transdisciplinary research and teaching will have for their career.

Review of applications will begin on January 1, 2024 until all positions are filled.
