Full Text of JOE Listing:

The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) seeks scholars with at least five years of post-Ph.D. experience in all fields of economics and finance that have domestic public policy applications. Candidates should have an established research agenda in an area related to public policy with supporting publications in respected academic journals, excellent communication skills, and a strong desire to influence thinking on important policy issues. This is a full-time appointment with competitive salary and benefits.

AEI scholars pursue their own research agenda. They are expected to produce high-quality academic research suitable for publication in respected journals as well as policy studies and economic analysis targeted for publication in general interest media and AEI's many in-house publications. Scholars are expected to communicate their research and its policy implications, in writing and orally, to journalists, policymakers, and the general public. AEI scholars are often called upon to provide Congressional testimony.

AEI is a private, non-partisan, 501(c)(3) organization committed to free enterprise, public engagement, and academic freedom. AEI scholars often take differing positions on policy issues, making AEI a place of vibrant and informed debate.
