The Economics Department and the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society (IBES) propose to search for a joint hire in environmental economics. We seek a scholar whose work brings the latest empirical data and methods to bear on environmental, sustainability, and/or climate-related challenges, their effects on individuals and societies, and the landscape for past, present, or future policy solutions through an economics lens. We intend to search broadly within this sub-field – for instance to encompass analysis of energy and/or carbon market policy and regulations, the effects of climate change on economic or health outcomes, effects of pollution and associated regulation – with a focus on scholars who would contribute to and benefit themselves from engagement in the interdisciplinary research community at IBES. This new hire would have a tenure home in Economics, with a 25/75 split of effort between IBES and Economics until tenure. After tenure a 50/50 split of effort will apply.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in hand or firmly expected by August 2024, be engaged in a research program with the potential to influence their field, and demonstrate the potential for excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching and advising.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and copies of or links to important publications and/or working papers and must arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted online at https://econjobmarket.org/positions/9773. Applicants should state in their cover letter how, through their research approaches, teaching methodology and/or public engagement, they are prepared to advance Brown’s strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Applications for Assistant Professor must be received by November 15, 2023 to be guaranteed full consideration, but will be accepted until the position is filled.
