Summary of Duties

The Department of Economics in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applications for a tenure track position at the assistant professor level working in applied microeconomics, commencing autumn semester 2018, subject to budgetary approval. The specific field is open, and might include labor, education, health, history, innovation, public, or urban / regional economics, or other fields in applied microeconomics.

The department is also seeking scholars working on issues of racial and gender inequality, the economics of immigration, health inequality, policy evaluation, and closely related topics to increase faculty diversity at Ohio State and promote research and teaching on topics central to race, ethnicity, gender/sex and disparities in modern society. In an effort to build a community of scholars around this theme, all units in the Division of Social and Behavioral Sciences will hire in the initiative. The specific position proposals involved in this initiative approach these issues from various perspectives that build on and contribute to the strengths of the units proposing them. We envision the Race, Ethnicity, Gender/Sex and Disparities in Modern Society cluster as a foundation on which we can build with other colleges, expanding areas of interest and research as faculty are added. The new cluster of faculty will be able to build a network with many committed professors already at home in the College of Arts and Sciences in the Diversity & Identity Studies Collective, the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, and the Department of African American and African Studies. Graduate certificates in this area of inquiry and undergraduate bridge programs are also being built to support this initiative.
