Open Rank

The Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics seeks multiple faculty appointees who will develop distinguished research and teaching programs in one or more of the following areas:  agricultural economics; environmental, resource or energy economics; international trade or economic development; and applied econometrics, applied microeconomics or experimental/behavioral economics in relation to the above fields.  The appointees are expected to develop creative and productive research programs that serve the public interest at the state, national or international level, and teach in the Department’s instructional programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  The positions are nine month tenured or tenure-track positions, with rank and salary commensurate with the candidate’s record.  The Department has a preference for candidates at the assistant or associate professor level with a proven record of research and publication; however, the rank of professor will be considered for exceptional candidates. Candidates should possess a doctorate in agricultural economics, economics, or an equivalent field.
