Bridge to Faculty Program in the Department of Economics

Darla Moore School of Business

University of South Carolina

As part of the new Bridge to Faculty Program at the University of South Carolina, the Department of Economics seeks a faculty fellow to begin August 16, 2024. Candidates with expertise in all economics subfields will be considered. This two-year program is intended to lead to a tenure-track position in the Department.

In keeping with the University’s commitment to “cultivating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive campus where every individual has the opportunity to flourish and thrive,” the Bridge to Faculty Program is designed to attract and retain promising scholars to the University of South Carolina with an emphasis on outreach to underrepresented early-career scholars. Specifically, the program seeks to recruit early-career scholars who, if successful during the program, will have the opportunity to transition to a tenure-track faculty appointment at USC at the start of the 2026-2027 academic year. As a member of the 2nd cohort of Bridge to Faculty Fellows from across the university, the Fellow will have a home in Economics alongside a dynamic group of scholars. With the additional support of USC’s Office of Access and Opportunity and Provost’s Office, Faculty Fellows will have access to institutional resources designed to support their readiness for a tenure-track position.

The Faculty Fellow will be expected to: (1) develop a robust program of research in economics (2) meet regularly with faculty mentors; (3) participate in professional development opportunities; and (4) participate in the intellectual life of the Economics Department and the University. There are no teaching requirements during the two-year Fellow program.

This is a 12-month research faculty appointment. Upon demonstration of academic productivity, it will be renewed for a second year, and with evidence of continued productivity, it can be converted to a tenure-track faculty position in the third year. Salary is competitive, and the position includes a generous benefits package with access to medical, vision, dental, and life insurance.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a PhD in Economics completed between July 1, 2019, and the start date of employment (ABDs considered).

We welcome and encourage applications from scholars who contribute to increasing diversity in their fields, as historically underrepresented persons in higher education, and/or by pursing scholarship that deepens understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion issues within the field.

Applicants must apply online at USCJobs at FAC00281PO23. Applications should include: a cover letter, a CV, a job market paper, and three letters of recommendation to be emailed directly to the Search Committee Chair. (If the candidate has not yet defended their dissertation, the letter from the dissertation director should confirm that the PhD will be completed by August 15, 2024). If you have any questions about the position or the application process, please contact Tamara Sheldon, Search Committee Chair, at
