Assistant Professor of Economics
Posted: 11/14/2017 (Employment)
Saint Michael’s College seeks a tenure-track assistant professor to teach 4-credit economics courses at the undergraduate level. The teaching load is 11 semester-long courses spread over 2 years (3-3-3-2). The college seeks teacher-scholars who are committed to excellence in teaching while being active in various forms of peer-reviewed scholarship. The ideal candidate will teach Macroeconomic Theory, Money and Banking, and Econometrics. We welcome new elective courses with various methodological perspectives consistent with candidate’s areas of teaching and research interest. The college offers competitive grant-funded undergraduate research opportunities, and the major in economics has a required research thesis capstone. The ideal candidate will therefore be able to work with students interested in doing empirical research and applied economic analysis. There will be opportunities to work with a new hire in the area of finance in the Department of Business Administration to explore complementarity in course offerings that might be of interest to students in both programs. Those with a proclivity for teaching and mentoring are particularly encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the field through peer-reviewed scholarship, published and other forms, consistent with standards of performance required for continuing appointment (tenure). The position also carries student advisement responsibilities and other service obligations consistent with the needs of the Department, College, and Profession.
