The Bates College Economics Department invites applications for multiple tenure-track positions. The positions are open rank/open field, although we are especially interested in candidates with expertise in econometrics, macroeconomics, or applied microeconomics. Candidates who have demonstrated success working with underrepresented and marginalized populations are encouraged to apply. The successful candidates will combine teaching and research in their field(s) of specialization with the expectation to regularly teach one or more core courses in our major: Principles of Economics, Intermediate Microeconomics and/or Macroeconomics, Statistics, and Econometrics. The annual teaching load is 5 courses. The appointment begins on August 1, 2022.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. To be seriously considered, candidates should substantively discuss in their application materials how they design their courses, develop an inclusive climate in the classroom, and in other ways support a broad range of social, cultural, and learning differences to ensure that all students thrive.
The Economics Department at Bates is a vibrant community of faculty and students committed to an economics education that is grounded in theory and empirical analysis. We believe that active engagement with research is critical to informed teaching, and evidence that we highly value research is apparent in the research track records of our faculty, our external seminar series, and our internal brown bag series. Economics is consistently one of the most popular majors at Bates, including substantial student involvement, e.g., with the organization Women in Economics @ Bates.
All Ph.D. degree requirements must be completed by the date of appointment.
Please submit the following materials: cover letter, curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts, a research paper, statements on diversity, teaching, and research, teaching evaluations, and either three references or letters of recommendation. Also, please describe your willingness and preparedness for teaching core courses. Employment is contingent upon successful completion of a background check.
