The endowed position comes with a reduced teaching load, discretionary research funds, and an annual stipend.

Candidates must have a doctorate in economics or a closely related discipline. A strong record of publications with evidence of ongoing research excellence is essential.

The candidate will primarily teach courses in international economics, trade policy, international development and global economic governance for the School's new Master of International Affairs (MIA) program, launched in Fall 2017. Additionally, the candidate may be asked to teach courses in the School's Master of Public Administration (MPA) program in the areas of economics of public policy, policy analysis and evaluation, and/or research and analysis.

The successful candidate will be expected to raise the visibility of the School in the area of global economic policy. The Chair will help shape the strategic direction of the MIA degree and advise students. She/he will share responsibility for committee and School assignments, including administrative, supervisory, and other functions.

The college is committed to attracting and retaining a diverse faculty. We encourage applications from underrepresented minority groups and women.
