ESA-announce Assistant/Associate Professor Position; Stony Brook University
Please see the announcement for the position below, which is to be housed in the Political Science Department at Stony Brook University. The position represents an exciting opportunity as it is part of a new research cluster called the Center for Behavioral Political Economy which is a joint initiative with the Department of Economics and the College of Business.
Position: Open and Multiple Ranks
Position Title: Assistant/Associate Professor
Starting Date: Fall 2014
Deadline: Sep 30, 2013
The Department of Political Science at Stony Brook University seeks a candidate whose research program addresses important political economy research questions using methods from experimental economics. We take a broad view of experimental economics and will welcome applications from any scholar employing these methods in his or her work, including, but not limited to, theories of risk preferences, social preferences, or bounded rationality. Topics of interest might include bureaucratic decision-making, market regulation, or income inequality. We are also interested in candidates whose work uses experimentation to address traditional political science topics such as formal and informal institutions, committee voting, elections, candidate competition, coalition formation, and corruption. The ideal candidate will show methodological innovation such as integrating techniques from political psychology and experimental economics, or combining methods such as field experimentation, agent-based modeling, and/or neuro/geno-politics. Overall, we are most concerned about the candidate’s excellence and potential to impact the field rather than his or her area of specialization. We expect to hire at the assistant professor level but will consider applications from extraordinary tenured candidates.
The Center for Behavioral Political Economy is part of an exciting new initiative, undertaken as part of SUNY 2020, to hire 100 faculty members over the next five years to rejuvenate the intellectual capital of Stony Brook University and expand teaching and research in emerging fields of study that cut across traditional boundaries of academic disciplines. With the new cluster Stony Brook will become a national leader in behavioral economics, political economy, and laboratory experiments. Scientists from the Departments of Political Science, Economics, and the College of Business will be part of this cutting-edge, world-class research group while building on their existing strengths in these areas. We expect to make 5 hires over the next 1-2 years as part of the cluster to build on our existing strengths in these areas. For the 2013-2014 year, we are searching for 2 additional positions as part of the interdisciplinary faculty cluster hires: Behavioral Finance, housed in the College of Business & Applied Econometrics, housed in the Department of Economics.
Special Notes: Eligibility for tenure will be based upon applicant’s qualifications and experience. FLSA Exempt position, not eligible for the overtime provisions of the FLSA. Internal and external search to occur simultaneously.
The selected candidate must successfully clear a background investigation.
