Graduate Program

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Political Economy

The W. Allen Wallis Institute of Political Economy is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral fellowship. The appointment can be for one or two semesters during the academic year 2018–2019. The institute, which is a collaborative effort of the University of Rochester's departments of economics and political science, is dedicated to fostering the growth of the interdisciplinary field of political economy.

Fellows should have a strong interest in political economy and will be expected to participate in the intellectual life of the economics and political science departments. They will also be required to teach one course in political economy or in their discipline during the academic year. The precise courses will, as much as possible, follow the fellow's choices.

Applicants must have received their PhDs in political science, economics, or political economy by September 1, 2018; fellows will normally have received their degrees within the previous five years. The University of Rochester, an equal opportunity employer, has a strong commitment to principles of diversity and actively encourages applications from groups underrepresented in higher education.

All applicants should submit a vita, work sample, and three letters of reference (with original signatures) to:

Mrs. Christine Massaro
W. Allen Wallis Institute of Political Economy
107 Harkness Hall, Box 270158
University of Rochester
Rochester, NY 14627-0158.

PDF files of the vita and work sample can be sent to c.massaro@rochester.edu. We will begin considering applications immediately. The application deadline is January 31, 2018.
