University of Utah
The Department of Economics invites applications for a tenure-track position in the field of environmental, ecological, or resource economics at the Assistant Professor rank. This is a tenure track appointment in the Department of Economics, with a shared appointment in Environmental & Sustainability Studies (ENVST).
Strong preference will be given to candidates who demonstrate exceptional research potential and a solid understanding of the ethical aspects of environmental justice and inequality, although this need not be the focus of their research. Candidates willing to engage, at some point in their future career and to some extent, with environmental concerns in Utah will be regarded favorably.
The Department of Economics has faculty members using diverse methodological approaches. The Environmental and Sustainability Studies Program has interdisciplinary faculty with specialties across social and behavioral sciences, humanities, and geography/earth systems science. The successful candidate will embrace this diversity and be committed to excellent teaching and advising at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
