The Division of Finance and Economics, housed in Marshall University's AACSB-accredited College of Business, announces a tenure-track opening in Economics at the Assistant/Associate level, to begin Fall 2013.

Teaching duties: The standard teaching load is three courses per semester. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to our division's undergraduate International Business (IB) program by teaching International Trade on a regular basis and by helping to manage the International Economics sequence that is required in this program. The person we hire will also teach Principles of Economics (either micro or macro) regularly. The ability and willingness to work with our IB faculty on the program capstone course, and to teach intermediate microeconomic theory, would be a plus.

Qualifications: Ph.D. in Economics or Applied Economics. ABD's with firm completion dates will also be considered. We seek first and foremost an excellent, student-centered teacher. We also expect the successful candidate to undertake research in accord with the standards of an AACSB-accredited school, and to demonstrate a willingness to take on service assignments at the college, university, and community levels. Successful applicants will also be expected to contribute to the University's general education curriculum, with its emphasis on a common First Year Seminar and core courses intended to enhance students' critical thinking. Candidates should also be willing to participate in interdisciplinary programs of study within the College of Business (e.g., the aforementioned International Business program).

Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2012. Position will remain open until filled. A complete application includes a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a separate statement of teaching experience and ability, graduate transcripts, a research paper, and three letters of reference.
