The Department of Economics at Stanford University invites applications for an open rank, tenure track position for scholars who study race in American society. This search is part of a university-wide initiative in which Stanford seeks to hire as many as 10 strong researchers and scholars who study the significance of race in American society, including the nature and persistence of racial inequality and its consequences.  Stanford seeks to support, deepen, and enhance the important research and teaching in these areas long underway on our campus. Appointments may be made in the following schools and departments: Stanford Law School, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Stanford Graduate School of Education, and the following departments within the School of Humanities and Sciences: Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, History, and Religious Studies.  Rank is open, although a majority of the appointments are expected to be made at the assistant professor level. At the senior level, we are particularly interested in candidates with an active program of research in progress and for established scholars to have outstanding records of achievement in developing or using innovative approaches in the broad areas of their discipline. Candidates for positions in Economics must demonstrate capacity for high-quality research and high-quality graduate and undergraduate teaching.

Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2020 and will continue until all of the positions are filled. Candidates are invited to apply online with a cover letter describing academic background and teaching experience along with a curriculum vitae. Applicants for a non-tenured position should also include research paper(s) and arrange to have three letters of reference submitted directly online by October 15, 2020.

Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
