Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Economics and Business Department at Colorado College, a highly selective liberal arts college with an enrollment of approximately 2,000 students, seeks to fill a tenure-track position in economics at the assistant professor level. Salary will be competitive with other liberal arts economics faculty positions. The department offers a major in Economics with electives in all functional areas of economics and business and supports interdisciplinary majors in International Political Economy and Mathematical Economics. A successful candidate will have:
• A PhD in Economics;
• Excellent research and teaching promise;
• Willingness to contribute to our core theory program.
The College is committed to increasing the diversity of the college community. Candidates who can contribute to that goal are particularly encouraged to apply.

Colorado College is distinctive for its modular “Block Plan” calendar. The academic year is divided into eight 3-1/2 week blocks and department faculty teach five courses per year plus supervision of senior thesis students.

During each block, students take and faculty teach one course at a time, with a maximum enrollment of 25 students per class. The college’s unique academic calendar supports experiential learning opportunities such as field trips and service learning, and lends itself to other innovative teaching and learning pedagogies. Student assistance is available to support teaching and research, and the college generously funds faculty scholarship and conference attendance. The department also supports business education with programmatic funding for executives-in-residence, visiting instructors, lecturers, field trips, and other activities that keep business at the forefront. In addition, funding is available at the department, divisional, and college levels to support summer research, and several endowed chairs provide course release for deserving faculty.

Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, but all supporting materials must be received by December 1 in order to guarantee full consideration for an interview at the ASSA meetings in January. We intend to contact candidates shortly after that date in order to secure an interview in Boston, and to arrange campus flyouts shortly after classes begin in late January.
