Full Text of JOE Listing:

Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy seeks a full-time Lecturer in International Economics to teach in new professional Master of International Affairs degree program to be offered in Albany and New York City. The Master of International Affairs degree program (see includes coursework in international relations, policy analysis, economics, management and quantitative methods and will prepare graduates for international careers in the public, private and non-profit sectors. The successful candidate must be able and willing to teach two required courses: a course in applied microeconomics and macro-economics designed for students who may not have an economics background; and an introductory international economics course. In addition, the successful candidate will teach elective courses to support the program's concentration in Global Economic Policy. Applicants without research and/or teaching experience in international economics will not be considered.
We anticipate that the successful candidate will teach courses in New York City classrooms but he or she must be willing utilize synchronous distance learning tools (e.g. videoconference and web conference) to include off-site students. The successful candidate will be offered a contract beginning in late August 2016 for up to a three-year appointment that can be repeatedly renewed, annually, for up to three-year terms, depending on teaching performance. 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. Although this is primarily a teaching position, Lecturers will be encouraged to engage in research and policy work and apply for external grants with which they may buy-out courses.
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.
