Job Details


The Economics Department at Dartmouth College invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor with an initial appointment as a postdoctoral fellow. We welcome applicants from all fields of economics. We are particularly interested in applicants conducting research on the causes and consequences of economic inequality, including disparities based on race, ethnicity, and other social factors.

This position is part of the Faculty Fellow Program in Arts and Sciences, a cohort of faculty members who have demonstrated commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in their disciplines. Successfully qualified candidates will have an outstanding record of research, teaching, mentoring, and service. Faculty Fellows are initially appointed to a two-year residential postdoctoral position. At the end of this appointment, the position is directly converted to a regular tenure-track appointment as an Assistant Professor.

The Dartmouth Economics Department is a community of teacher-scholars with a commitment to both academic research at the highest level and rich and impactful undergraduate educational experience.

The faculty regularly collaborates with researchers at other universities as well as with other parts of Dartmouth, including the Geisel School of Medicine, the Tuck School of Business, the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Social Sciences, and the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding.

The Economics Department and Dartmouth are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. Dartmouth recently launched a new initiative, Toward Equity , that embraces shared definitions of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging as a foundation for our success in institutional transformation. The specific efforts of the Economics Department are highlighted on our website . We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds and with different identities and attributes. Applicants should provide a statement addressing how their teaching, research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This statement will be evaluated as part of the selection process.


Applicants should have a Ph.D. in economics or a closely related field, or be ABD with PhD expected at the start of their appointment.
