Assistant Professor of International Political Economy

Rank of assistant professor beginning September 2012. While we are open to specialty, consideration will be given to candidates with a substantive interest in emerging market economies or Europe and a methodological interest in quantitative approaches (emphasis added).

Review of applications will begin January 3, 2012.  Questions relating to this search should be emailed to IPEsearch-at-Tufts.edu

Now I know there’s just a booming market for junior IPE types, so I’m sure no one reading this will be interested in a tenure-track position in the Boston area.  Still, I thought I’d put it out there. 

And, now that my home institution is actually creating a job, I’d like all of the tax cuts and subsidies that politicians seem so eager to proffer nowadays.  That, or a dedicated parking spot.
