The Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University invites applications from outstanding candidates for a faculty position at the Assistant Professor level beginning in the Fall of 2024. This position is part of the Provost's Distinguished Faculty Fellows Program, which seeks to hire candidates whose scholarship focuses on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The ideal candidate should have a strong interest in research and teaching related to the Economics of Social Justice, broadly defined. Potential topics of research include, but are not limited to, the economics of race, ethnicity, caste, gender, sexual orientation or identity, migration status, disabilities, decolonization, climate change, or economic inequality. We encourage applications from candidates working on these topics within and across subfields such as applied microeconomics, labor, health, education, environment, development, migration, international trade, political economy, and macroeconomics. We will also consider applications from candidates in related disciplines such as political science, sociology, or demography. Candidates must demonstrate outstanding potential for empirical/quantitative research and have a PhD by the employment start date. The Provost Distinguished Fellows favors recent Ph.D. candidates and exempts them from teaching and service responsibilities in their first year in order to focus full-time on their research. In subsequent years the teaching load would be standard and include a course on social justice topics. Each Fellow is assigned mentors and will interact with a growing cohort of other fellows at Georgetown.
Applications are due by November 27th and should include the following
- Cover letter
- Curriculum vitae
- Job market paper
- Three letters of recommendation
- A statement detailing the candidate's contributions and commitment to diversity and inclusion through mentorship, teaching and service.
All applications and supporting materials must be submitted through the following link: http://apply.interfolio.com/134386. Faxed, emailed, or mailed applications will not be accepted.
Questions about the online application should be directed to Lauren Bauschard, Director of Faculty Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions about the position should be directed to the Chair of the Committee: Prof. Nuno Limão at email@example.com.
