The teaching load will be three courses per semester; however, up to two course releases per year will be given for substantial contributions to program administration.

Candidates must have a PhD in economics (or related degree) from a college or university accredited by a U.S. Department of Education or internationally recognized accrediting organization and demonstrated teaching performance. Applications from candidates with experience in applied settings of international organizations, foreign ministries and policy think tanks who have taught on an adjunct basis and wish to teach full-time are most welcome. Any international economics teaching experience in similar professionally-oriented international affairs or public policy masters programs will be a plus. Interest and ability in teaching a course in quantitative methods will also be considered a plus.
A review of applications will start on December 1, 2015 and the search will remain open until the position is filled. To view the full job description with application instructions, see:
