Faculty Position Information:


Position Title:
Associate Professor - Agricultural Supply Chains


Appointment Type:
Faculty


Job Description:
Summary of Duties and Responsibilities:

The Department of Economics in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa seeks to fill a tenured faculty position in agricultural economics at the associate professor level. The person who fills this position will hold the Iowa Institute for Cooperatives Endowed Economics Professorship.  The individual in this position is expected to develop a nationally recognized extension and research program in the economics of the agribusiness sector and agricultural value chains, with an emphasis on cooperatives and related organizations. The approximate split for this position is 50% extension, 5% institutional service, and the remaining portion divided between research and teaching, based on negotiations between the candidate and the department. Areas of extension and research activities might include: finance and equity structures of agribusiness firms; regulation and taxation of the various entities within ag value chains; the role of cooperatives in the evolving industrial organization of agricultural markets; vertical integration; innovation and product development; ownership, control rights and governance structures along agricultural value chains; and/or risks and risk sharing arrangements in commodity markets.

The successful candidate will be expected to: (a) carry out original research, related to the economics embedded in the physical and financial transactions along agricultural value chains, including grant‐seeking efforts and publications in leading peer‐reviewed journals; (b) develop a significant extension program targeted at educating the citizenry on the factors that shape the evolution of ag value chains and the business structures employed to derive those values; (c) work closely with cooperatives in the state to address emerging and ongoing issues through research and extension and (d) teach, at least, one undergraduate course per year. Opportunities will exist to direct graduate students’ research and to collaborate in research and extension activities with colleagues in affiliated centers, such as the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development (CARD) and the Center for Agricultural Law and Taxation (CALT).


Required Minimum Qualifications:
