The successful candidate will be expected to develop a highly visible research program, including the acquisition of external funding, with a focus on regional economics and applied policy issues of relevance to the Alaskan economy. The successful candidate is expected to disseminate their research through peer-reviewed journals and ISER’s research publications, and communicate the policy implications of their research to government officials, industry and non-profit sector representatives, the media, and the general public. Candidates will also have opportunities to develop other research interests and opportunities to teach. ISER faculty have research-heavy workloads and typically teach up to one class per semester.

The salary range for this position is $87,600 - $130K depending on experience.
