The candidate will be actively involved in all aspects of McGill’s academic mission (research,  teaching, supervision of graduate students, and involvement in academic and administrative committees) and will demonstrate a commitment to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion in these activities. McGill faculty members are expected to contribute to service activities within their units, the  University, and the wider scholarly community.  

Qualifications and Education Requirements 

Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent advanced degree with a research focus on systemic racism or racial inequalities in health.

Economics Departmental Executive Officer  (Chair) Search 

University of Iowa, Tippie College of Business  

We’re looking for the next leader for a renowned economics  department 

The Economics Department has been a premier department in the University of Iowa since Frank Knight  was a faculty member in the 1920’s. In 2017, US News ranked the Economics Department 42nd overall  and 21st among public institutions. We are looking for a Departmental Executive Officer (DEO) to build  on the department’s tradition of excellence.  

This position offers an exciting opportunity to make major contributions to the study of economics and  to provide strategic leadership aimed at growing and repositioning the department. The college  envisions a small, but world-class business economics department.  

What we’re about 

The Department of Economics at the University of Iowa is administratively housed in the vibrant Tippie  College of Business and offers degrees in both the College of Business and the College of Liberal Arts &  Sciences. The department plays a leading role in the robust teaching and research environment. For  example, the Iowa Electronic Market (IEM), a real-money futures market pioneered by three economics  faculty members, spawned modern prediction markets research.  

The permanent faculty of the Economics Department includes 8 tenured/tenure track faculty and 6 instructional track faculty. There are approximately 230 undergraduate economics majors (~50 BBA  majors in the Tippie College of Business and ~180 BA and BS majors in the College of Liberal Arts). The  department is restarting its nationally ranked PhD program. The department also teaches critical classes  in MBA, specialty masters and PhD programs across the college. 

The University of Iowa’s status as a premier research university depends on the robust exchange of  ideas. We achieve excellence through diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our ability to foster an equitable  and inclusive environment for all who join the UI family will determine our collective success. To learn  more, visit https://diversity.uiowa.edu/. 

The University of Iowa is located in Iowa City, a Midwestern college town with modest housing costs, an  excellent public school system, excellent healthcare with a world-class teaching hospital, and superior  venues for the performing arts. The Iowa City-Cedar Rapids corridor has a combined population of  450,000 residents and an airport with direct major airline flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas-Ft.  Worth, Denver, Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Phoenix. 

How you’ll make a difference 

Tippie is a collaborative, innovative and nimble college with infinite potential; a place where you can  have an immediate impact. The college and department are poised to embrace the future of higher  education and research. Bring your ideas to build and integrate the department’s role in the college and  university.  

The Department Executive Officer (DEO) reports directly to the Senior Associate Dean of the College.  The DEO is a tenured full professor charged with providing strategic and operational leadership that promotes excellence in the faculty missions of research, education and service. This charge includes working with faculty to develop the department’s vision and execute the department’s strategic plan.  The DEO also provides leadership in the areas of faculty recruitment, development and retention,  mentoring of junior faculty, overall quality improvement and budget management. 

The DEO works collaboratively with the Dean, Senior Associate Dean, other DEOs, faculty, program  directors, and staff to advance education, scholarship, and service in a culture that promotes  participation, collegiality, professionalism, and excellence. The DEO assures delivery of effective  curriculum, promotes research, and oversees service in a manner that meets program goals and  supports the vision, mission and strategic plan of the department, college and university. The DEO also  serves as an important communication link between the department and other units of the college and  university. 

Our next Economics DEO will build a small but high-achieving business economics department that  serves students in two colleges and address the need for economic education and research in the state.  Candidates should have the ability to engage the current faculty in a vision for the department’s future  while attracting a small number of new faculty to enable the department to achieve that vision. We  believe the right size for the department is about a dozen tenured/tenure track faculty and 4-6  instructional track faculty.  

Requirements 

A Ph.D. in Economics or a related field is required. We are looking for a leader that understands the  mission of the Economics Department and works with faculty and staff to promote that mission. The  successful candidate will:
