The Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics (ACE) seeks to fill a position for an Assistant or Associate Professor in International Trade and Food Security.

This position is part of an initiative in the College of ACES to contribute to the improvement of global human and environmental health via the food system. We intend to dramatically strengthen and expand our capacity in this arena through a seven-position cluster hire focused on Food and Agricultural Systems for Global Health. Faculty hired into these positions will lead collegewide efforts in food security and global health, and participate in related campus priorities, including the Nutrition and Food Security theme of the campus strategic plan (blogs.illinois.edu/view/7831/601847), the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute, Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, and Carle-Illinois College of Medicine, among others.

Primary Duties include:

  • Develop a nationally prominent research program with publications in leading peer-reviewed scientific journals and extramural funding
  • Contribute to the department’s undergraduate and graduate teaching programs through teaching (generally two courses per year) and student advising
  • Collaborate with colleagues to address societal problems that require complex, multidisciplinary approaches

All candidates must hold a Ph.D. in agricultural/applied economics, economics, finance, or related field. Candidates should show potential for a strong research and teaching program in their area of specialization, and have completed their degree before the start date of the appointment. 

To ensure full consideration, candidates should apply by November 15, 2018. The search will remain open until suitable candidates are identified. Candidates may be interviewed before the closing date; however no hiring decision will be made until after that date. To apply, please create a candidate profile at jobs.illinois.edu and upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a sample of written work, a research statement, a teaching statement and three letters of reference. Applicants who are currently graduate students or post-doctoral fellows must also submit transcripts from graduate program(s).
