Interdisciplinary Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative
The position of Director of the Center of Behavioral Political Economy is part of an exciting new initiative, undertaken as part of SUNY 2020, to hire 100 faculty members over the next five years to rejuvenate the intellectual capital of Stony Brook University and expand teaching and research in emerging fields of study that cut across traditional boundaries of academic disciplines. The interdisciplinary faculty cluster hires are aimed at addressing society's most vexing challenges through the collaboration of natural, life, and social sciences; technology; medicine; humanities; policy; business; and the arts. The positions are designated for faculty members whose research and teaching interests are interdisciplinary. The goals of this initiative are to strategically place Stony Brook University on the emerging frontiers of research and knowledge and to enhance our ability to shape new fields of discovery, learning and engagement.

For the position of Director of the Center for Behavioral Political Economy, we are looking for a prominent scholar who has an established record of employing the research methods of behavioral economics in addition to a record of relevant academic publications and external funding to conduct laboratory experiments. Additional areas of expertise may be in explaining substantive phenomenon in finance (e.g. consumer behavior), economics (e.g. regulation, design of public programs and public institutions), or political science (e.g. law and economics). The ideal candidate is substantively interested in behavioral political economy overlapping economics, business, and political science. S/he has a track record of successful interdisciplinary research: (1) external funding from NSF and other agenciesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ cross-cutting programs, (2) publications in general science journals (such as Science or PNAS), or journals representing different disciplines (economics, business, psychology, political science), and (3) administrative experience; a record of department and university service. The Director of the CBPE will play a key leadership role overseeing the Center, designing and managing long-term strategic goals, and coordinating with the chairs of the Departments of Economics and Political Science and the Dean of the College of Business for growth opportunities and further hiring strategies. The Director will be teaching courses at the PhD, Masters, and undergraduate level in Experimental Economics, Experimental Design, and Political Economy, and will bring together students from the three units and tie together their programs. Collaborations that begin in the classroom will carry over into the Center.
