The Department of Economics in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applications for an assistant professor working in experimental and/or behavioral economics.

While an experimental economist focused on individual and strategic decision-making is preferred, candidates with theoretical or field-based empirical work may also be considered, if their work is appropriately focused on decision science topics.


A tenure-track assistant professor will be expected to establish and maintain an active research program, seek grant opportunities, and support a commitment to excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Candidates are expected to have completed all of the requirements for their doctoral degree prior to the start of employment.
