The Economics program at Keene State College seeks a dynamic instructor to teach one or two sections of ECON103 Introduction to Microeconomics (MW 1-2:45pm and/or MW 3-4:45pm) for the Fall 2021 semester. This is a part-time, non-benefitted position.
Course Description: ECON103 Introduction to Microeconomics is an introductory course on how individual consumers and firms make decisions in line with their economic objectives. We analyze the workings of supply and demand in the determination of price, resource allocation, income distribution, and economic efficiency. The courses are currently enrolled, each with a cap of 35 students.
Our students come from diverse socio-economic and educational backgrounds, with a high percentage of first-generation college students. By the time Keene State College students complete their undergraduate experience they develop critical thinking, creative inquiry, intercultural competence, civic engagement, and commitments to well-being and to sustainability that will serve them as active citizens and lifelong learners. We strongly encourage individuals to apply who will support the College’s ongoing efforts to help students become responsible global citizens.
At Keene State College, we share a commitment to diversity, equity and multiculturalism as key elements of academic excellence. We seek faculty with a desire to provide support, mentorship and direction to prepare students to work within diverse communities. One of our aspirations is to develop social change agents with the knowledge, skills and experience to compassionately engage with their future employers, peers and those they serve from diverse backgrounds. Faculty actively engage in collaborative work and service within the department and across the College to advance future-thinking curricular and co-curricular approaches that strengthen our Liberal Arts focus and achieve the College’s goals for inclusion and excellence as outlined in the College’s Strategic Plan.
A master’s degree in economics (or in related field), or ABD status in a PhD program; and proven teaching experience and effectiveness.
