Core Faculty Position in Economics Associate Professor / Professor
Georgetown University: Main Campus: Walsh School of Foreign Service: Georgetown University in Qatar

Location: Qatar
Open Date: Sep 22, 2021
Deadline: Mar 30, 2022 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

Description
Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) aims to recruit a senior research-oriented economist for a core faculty position at GU-Q. We seek applications from colleagues in all economic disciplines, with some preference on development, international economics, or on applied work. Applicants must have substantial research accomplishments, evidence of ambitious ongoing research agendas, and outstanding teaching credentials. Appointment will be at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor.

GU-Q was established in 2005 alongside eight other elite international universities in Education City in partnership with Qatar Foundation. GU-Q is an integral part of Georgetown University, delivering the renowned School of Foreign Service's Bachelor in Foreign Service: a liberal arts program offering majors in International Politics, International History, Culture and Politics, and International Economics. Several MA programs are in development. Degrees are issued by Georgetown University. GU-Q is a research-focused, student-oriented institution with a globally competitive research and publications record; it houses its own Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS). We value interdisciplinarity. Faculty and students also benefit from the opportunities offered by the wider academic eco-system of Education City.

Core faculty positions are full-time positions designed to replicate the institutional commitment to academic freedom and professional opportunities associated with tenure-track and tenured appointments, in conformity/compliance with Georgetown University's academic governance guidelines.

GU-Q provides generous research support and support for conference travel. Faculty at Georgetown University in Qatar are eligible to apply for Qatar National Priorities Research Program grants from the Qatar National Research Fund. GU-Q boasts best-in-class teaching facilities including a Global Classroom for classes joining students in Washington, D.C. and Doha.

Qatar offers a diverse, safe and family-friendly environment. Ranked the safest country in the world in 2020, it is connected by direct flights to over 160 destinations in 90 countries. The iconic new National Library, adjacent to GU-Q in Education City and designed by Rem Koolhaas, provides free membership to all faculty and students. Public parks, beaches, sports facilities, museums, cafes and restaurants abound, and a state-of-the-art metro system connects all parts of Doha and nearby locations (see https://www.visitqatar.qa/en/home). Education City has its own extensive sports facilities.

Compensation is very competitive in relation to the US academic market and even more so to that of the UK and Europe. It includes an annual summer research stipend for active scholars, amounting to 2/9 of the base salary. The expatriate benefits package includes: fully-furnished high-quality housing, transportation allowance, annual family home leave allowance, health insurance (worldwide coverage), generous private school tuition support for accompanying children, etc.

For more information on GU-Q, see https://www.qatar.georgetown.edu. For a glimpse of what it is like to teach and live in Qatar, see: https://youtu.be/HNoERrWln4k.

Applications should be submitted by March 31, 2022 to ensure full consideration. Review of applications will begin in early December and continue until the position is filled. It is anticipated that preliminary interviews will be conducted at the 2022 meeting of the American Economic Association. Applicants should provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names of three scholarly references. Applications must be made via Interfolio. Faxed or emailed applications will not be accepted.

Queries about the position should be directed to Alexis Antoniades, chairperson of the search committee at aa658@georgetown.edu.
