General Description

Established in 1955 as an integral part of the School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University (SAIS), SAIS Europe in Bologna, Italy has been educating global leaders in the area of international affairs for 66 years. As a highly-selective graduate institution with a distinguished faculty, SAIS consistently ranks as one of the top schools of international relations in the world. SAIS was founded to provide a practical approach to training students in international leadership and foreign relations, and to provide mid-career educational opportunities for those already working in related fields. Today, SAIS Europe hosts around 200 full-time students hailing from 40-50 countries pursuing, inter alia, Master of Arts in International Relations (MAIR), Master of Arts in International Affairs (MAIA), Master of European Public Policy (MEPP), Master of Arts in Global Risk (MAGR), and Doctorate of International Affairs (DIA) degrees, with a diverse, international group of over 60 resident and adjunct faculty. To learn more about SAIS and SAIS Europe, please visit www.sais-jhu.edu/europe.

The Positions

SAIS Europe is currently seeking to fill up to two resident faculty positions in finance and development economics, both of which are endowed professorships. A strong background in empirical research, including data science, and econometrics is an advantage for both positions. The Vera and Stefano Zamagni Professorship in development economics will be tenure-track at the assistant or associate professor rank. Candidates will be expected to have innovative, eclectic research agendas related to the broad field of development economics, including the implications of climate change for developing economies, sustainability, and finance and development policy. The James Anderson Professorship in International Economics and Finance will have an open rank and may be either tenure-track/tenured or a term appointment. Candidates will have a focus in the general areas of finance and financial markets, including finance and innovation, Fintech, behavioral finance, corporate finance, or financial intermediation. Candidates who have substantial practical experience in the above areas could be considered outside the tenure track with a term appointment.

Qualifications

For both positions, preference will be given to candidates who combine outstanding research with proven or potential excellence in teaching and experience in the field. A Ph.D. in economics or finance with a strong track record of publications is expected for candidates at the Associate or Full Professor level. For appointments at the Assistant Professor level on the tenure track, candidates are expected to finalize their Ph.D. in economics or finance before July 2022. Both positions will be based at the Bologna campus.

Application Instructions

Applications will only be accepted through Interfolio.

A letter of application, a curriculum vitae, samples of research, and at least three letters of recommendation (for junior appointments) or the names and contact points of three references (for senior appointments) should be included.

Applications will be reviewed immediately and will be accepted until the position is filled. For full consideration, candidates should submit their applications before 1 November, 2021.
