Part-time RFS Advisory Editor Position Available

An RFS advisory editor position is available for the next academic year; the start date is flexible. The position is a particularly good fit for finance/economics post-docs or late-stage PhD students.  The primary task is to provide editorial support in the review process and requires about 10 hours per week with a minimum commitment for one year (or preferably for two years). The position allows working closely with the RFS editors and for ample time to continue work on one’s own research. In recent years, our AEs have gone on to tenure-track positions at NTU, University of Tennessee, Rutgers University at Camden, and Fordham University, as well as a post-doc at Vanderbilt. Salary is competitive. The position will remain open until filled. To apply, please submit a cover letter, graduate course work, any working papers, and three letters of recommendation to Jan Sokolowsky at
