The Department of Economics at Christopher Newport University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Economics, effective August 15, 2016. Applicants must be committed to undergraduate education and demonstrate the potential for excellence in teaching and research with undergraduates. In addition, applicants must have a promising scholarly agenda and commitment to taking an active part in the life and work of the Department and University.
