The Department of Economics at Queen’s University invites applications for a Weatherall Postdoctoral Fellowship. This is a one-year fellowship, renewable for a second year, which shall commence on July 1, 2023. The Postdoctoral Fellow will work under the supervision of a host professor in the Department. While we are particularly interested in applicants with research and teaching interests in econometrics, applicants in other fields are also encouraged to apply.

Applicants must either have received their doctorate by July 1, 2023 or expect to do so within six months. Renewal of the appointment for the period July 1, 2024 to June 30, 2025 will be conditional on completion of all requirements for the doctoral degree by December 31, 2023.

The Postdoctoral Fellow appointed to this position is expected to reside in Kingston, to be actively involved in the day-to-day life of the Economics Department, and to collaborate in developing research ideas with faculty and students in the Department.

This Postdoctoral Fellowship carries a full-time salary commensurate with qualifications and experience. The incumbent will also be expected to teach at least one course per year and may have the option to teach two, depending on availability. In addition, the Department of Economics will provide resources to cover research expenses. These may include, for example, computer hardware and software, technical books and journals, and travel to conferences.

The University invites applications from all qualified individuals. Queen's is strongly committed to employment equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace and encourages applications from Black, racialized/visible minority and Indigenous/Aboriginal people, women, persons with disabilities, and 2SLGBTQ+ persons. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, in accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.

To comply with federal laws, the University is obliged to gather statistical information as to how many applicants for each job vacancy are Canadian citizens / permanent residents of Canada. Applicants need not identify their country of origin or citizenship; however, all applications must include one of the following statements: “I am a Canadian citizen / permanent resident of Canada”; OR, “I am not a Canadian citizen / permanent resident of Canada”. Applications that do not include this information will be deemed incomplete.

A complete application consists of:
• a cover letter (including one of the two statements regarding Canadian citizenship/permanent resident status specified in the previous paragraph);
• a current Curriculum Vitae (including a list of published and unpublished works);
• a job market paper;
• a statement of current and prospective research interests;
• a statement of teaching interests and experience (including evaluations if available);
