Tenure Track Faculty Position: Assistant or Associate Professor in Economics of Sustainability

The Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics (ACE) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign seeks to fill a position for an Assistant or Associate Professor in Economics of Sustainability. This position builds on existing strength in the Department of ACE in environmental and natural resource economics, and is part of an initiative to build a center for the economics of sustainability that includes research related to the environment, agriculture, development, and consumer behavior. The department is particularly interested in hiring someone with methodological skills that are complementary to our existing capacity in econometrics, including methods such as optimization, simulation, or experiments.

Primary duties include:

– Develop a nationally prominent research program with publications in leading peer-reviewed scholarly journals and extramural funding

– Contribute to the department’s undergraduate and graduate teaching programs through teaching (generally two courses per year) and student mentoring.
