Cornell SC Johnson College of Business
Cornell University

The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University invites applications from qualified individuals for a tenure track faculty position in Behavioral Economics, beginning July 2023, for placement in one of our seven areas: Accounting, Applied Economics and Policy, Finance, Management and Organizations, Marketing & Management Communications, Operations, Technology, & Information Management, or Strategy & Business Economics. The area will be determined based on research area/interest and teaching experience. Rank is open (assistant, associate and full professor); salary and rank are commensurate with experience and qualifications. Seasoned candidates with established track records in research and teaching could be eligible for the Ashley Family Professorship of Behavioral Economics if the candidate is able to provide support for the instructional needs of graduate and undergraduate courses in behavioral economics.

We seek an outstanding scholar with a track record of research in leading academic outlets, especially in the following areas: behavioral economics/behavioral science, computational models of decision making, behavioral risk management, and use of machine learning or AI for generating insights into human behavior. Candidates may come from backgrounds in business economics, strategy, finance, accounting, marketing, operations, or management, and use research methods that may include lab, field, and natural experiments. The successful candidate is expected to maintain an impactful program of research relevant to broad societal, economic, and business issues and to communicate results to policymakers and practitioners. Excellent teaching skills are a must. The successful candidate will also be expected to be actively involved in Cornell University’s Behavioral Economics and Decision Research Center (BEDR), founded in 1987 by Richard Thaler as the birthplace of behavioral economics.

It is expected that our faculty teach across multiple schools within the College of Business.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in economics, psychology, behavioral science, data science, or related fields by the time they start in the position. Preferred candidates will demonstrate high standards of accomplishment in research, teaching, and service.

The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business (established on July 1, 2016) combines three Schools: the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management (Johnson), the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management (Dyson), and the Peter and Stephanie Nolan School of Hotel Administration (Nolan). The College houses top-ranked undergraduate and MBA programs as well as additional graduate programs that award Ph.D., M.S. and M.P.S. degrees. Faculty members frequently collaborate with colleagues in Computer and Information Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Natural Resources, the New York City Tech campus, and other units on campus.

The search committee will review applications on a rolling basis; the position will remain open until filled.
