The Department of Economics at Concordia University in Montreal invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor. The expected start date is August 1, 2020. We are interested in applicants specializing in the economics of health and aging, but exceptional candidates in other fields may also be considered.


Candidates must have a PhD completed at the start date of the appointment. The main criteria for selection are academic and teaching excellence. The successful candidate will provide evidence of high-quality scholarly output that demonstrates potential for independent research leading to peer assessed publications and the securing of external research funding, as well as strong potential for outstanding teaching contributions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The position is subject to final budgetary approval by the University.


All candidates should apply online at econjobmarket.org. Applications must consist of a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae, a job market paper, a statement of research achievements, a statement of teaching philosophy/interests, and if available, evidence of teaching effectiveness.  Candidates must also arrange to have three letters of reference submitted via this website. 


Concordia strives to be an inclusive institution that is welcoming of diverse backgrounds and experiences in order to improve learning, advance research, inspire creativity, and drive productivity. We define diversity broadly to include both ethnic and socio-cultural background and diversity of perspectives, ideologies and traditions. As part of this commitment, we require all applicants to articulate in their cover letter how their professional experiences and expertise have prepared them to conduct innovative research and to teach in ways that are relevant for a diverse, multicultural contemporary Canadian society.


All applications should reach the department no later than December 1, 2019. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position has been filled.  All inquiries about the position should be directed to Dr. Jorgen Hansen, Department Chair (Jorgen.Hansen@concordia.ca). 


All applicants will receive an email invitation to complete a short equity survey. Participation in the survey is voluntary and no identifying information about candidates will be shared with hiring committees. Candidates who wish to self-identify as a member of an underrepresented group to the hiring committee may do so in their cover letter or by writing directly to the contact person indicated in this posting.


Concordia recognizes the potential impact that career interruptions can have on a candidate’s record of research excellence and will take them into careful consideration in assessing applications and throughout the selection process.


Applicants who anticipate requiring accommodations throughout any stage of the recruitment process may contact, in confidence, Nadia Hardy, Interim Deputy Provost and Vice-Provost, Faculty Development and Inclusion at vpfdi@concordia.ca or by phone at 514.848.2424 extension 4323.


Concordia University is strongly committed to employment equity within its community, and to recruiting a diverse faculty and staff.  The University encourages applications from all qualified individuals, including women, members of visible minorities, Indigenous persons, members of sexual minorities, persons with disabilities, and others who may contribute to diversification; candidates are invited to self-identify in their applications. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and Permanent Residents will be given priority. 


To comply with the Government of Canada’s reporting requirements, the University is obliged to gather information about applicants’ status as either Permanent Residents of Canada or Canadian citizens.  Applicants need not identify their country of origin or current citizenship; however, all applications must include one of the following statements:

Yes, I am a citizen or permanent resident of Canada

No, I am not a citizen or permanent resident of Canada
