Visiting Professorship in Environmental Economics

The Visiting Professorship in Environmental Economics is supported by a 5-year anonymous gift to the Princeton Environmental Institute. The program brings leading economists to campus for collaborations at the intersection of economics, public policy, and environmental sciences.

Former appointees have explored topics such as environmental justice, ecosystems services, sustainable development, and/or climate policy. Visitors are expected to contribute to on-going research endeavors and collaborations with members of the PEI’s associated faculty and may be encouraged to contribute to PEI’s teaching program by offering undergraduate and/or graduate level seminar course(s) and by mentoring undergraduate students on independent projects. Visitors hold joint appointments in PEI and an academic department appropriate to their background and scholarship. Appointments range from one semester to a full academic year.
