Spatial economics JMPs (2018-2019)

Last year, I comingled spatial-economics candidates with the trade JMCs. This year, I’m offering a separate list. Thanks to those who suggested spatial-economics candidates in response to my tweet. Since people working on spatial economics come from a variety of fields, I’ve listed candidate’s self-identified fields in brackets after their JMP title. I’m sure I missed folks, so please add them in the comments.

Trade JMPs (2018-2019)

It’s already November again. Time flies. As I do annually, I’ve gathered a list of trade-related job-market papers. The market leader in trade this year is Penn State, which offers seven candidates. If I’ve missed someone, please contribute to the list in the comments. A few schools (e.g., UCLA, Yale) have not yet posted candidates.

[Nov 11 update: I’ve added a number of candidates since this was posted Nov 5. Now listing 40 people. I didn’t recompute stats nor word cloud.]

Of the 33 candidates I’ve initially listed, 16 use Google Sites, 8 registered their own domain, and only 5 use school-provided webspace (3 use Weebly; 1 GitHub).

Here’s a cloud of the words that appear at least twice in these papers’ titles:
