Maryland School of Public Policy

Position in International Development Policy

The School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland seeks to hire an assistant professor (tenure track) whose academic background and, ideally, relevant work experience make her/him a likely future leader in our program in international development policy, one of the fastest growing multidisciplinary teaching and research areas at the School.  Applicants should have a PhD (or equivalent terminal degree) in economics, public policy, political economy, or other development-related area, or anticipate receiving such a degree in the coming months. The School has particular interest in individuals with at least some international development experience, either as a scholar with a few years of post-graduate academic experience, or experience in the field, such as with U.S. government, multilateral or non-profit development institutions. Preference will be given to candidates willing and able to teach our core micro-economics course and to advise our growing number of Ph.D. students in international development. We welcome applications from women and minorities. The University of Maryland is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer.

For best consideration, please apply by November 20, 2009.  Applications should be sent to Susan C. Schwab, Search Committee Chair, c/o Mary Lopez, School of Public Policy, 2101 Van Munching Hall, College Park, Maryland, 20742.  Interviews will be conducted at the AEA and other professional conferences.
