Faculty Position in Global Health Economics


The University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs in collaboration with the University’s Eck Institute for Global Health (EIGH) is seeking a faculty member for a tenure track position in global health economics whose research and teaching interests focus on the economic analysis of health policies and programs in developing countries.

Applicants at the assistant, associate or full professor level will be considered, with a preference for candidates with at least two years of post-doctoral experience. Applicants must have an advanced degree in economics or equivalent training in a health policy program.

This faculty search is inspired by the need to enhance and expand Notre Dame’s research and teaching in the area of global health economics. Since the Keough School and EIGH seek to reduce global health disparities, applicants should have a strong emphasis in their research and teaching on these issues. While demonstrating excellence in research and teaching is critical to be considered for the position, scholars with direct experience working in health policy and program analysis with international organizations, governments or non-governmental organizations are encouraged to apply. Applicants should also have a strong interest in interdisciplinary cooperation.

The successful hire will be based in the Keough School with an EIGH affiliation. The Keough School advances integral human development through research, policy and practice; transformative educational programs; and partnerships for global engagement. It promotes interdisciplinary research on critical issues in global affairs, offers a master’s degrees well as undergraduate and doctoral programs.

EIGH serves as a university-wide enterprise that recognizes health as a fundamental human right and works to promote research, training, and service to advance health standards and reduce health disparities. It brings together multidisciplinary teams to understand and address health challenges that disproportionately affect the poor in developing countries and to train the next generation of global health leaders. EIGH offers a master’s degree and provides support for doctoral students, post-doctoral fellowships, and undergraduate programs.

All applicants are required to submit a cover letter, job market paper and a CV. Evidence of teaching effectiveness is also welcomed. Junior candidates (including PhD students, postdocs, assistant or non-tenured associate professors) should also arrange for the submission of three confidential letters of reference.

Nominations and inquiries may be sent via email to:

The position will close on September 30, 2021, and review of applications will begin at that time.
