Associate/Full Professor in Health Economics

Syracuse University’s Department of Economics seeks to fill a position in health economics at the Associate or Full Professor level. This position is part of an ambitious cluster hire initiative in the broad area of Aging, Health, and Neuroscience and the subarea of Population Health into which several positions are being filled from different disciplines. Faculty hired into these positions will build on our existing strengths in the focus area and will participate in an organized research cluster that spans multiple departments in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs as well as the university.

Candidates should have a strong track record of publishing in core peer reviewed economics journals, grant activity, ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in health economics, and ability to advise doctoral students in economics. Participation in cross-disciplinary dialog and partnerships within the cluster is anticipated. While all areas of health economics will be considered, preference will be given to individuals with interest in continuing or developing work related to cognitive impairment, substance use disorders, or mental health.

We seek candidates whose research, teaching and/or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to engagement and inclusion of culturally diverse audiences in higher education, and especially in economics and related areas associated with the cluster.
