Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Bates College Economics Department invites applications for a one-year visiting position, beginning on August 1, 2020. The successful candidates must combine research in their field(s) of specialization with a willingness to teach Introductory Microeconomics, and electives in Environmental Economics. Candidates who have experience with marginalized and underrepresented student support and success are strongly encouraged to apply. The teaching load is five courses per academic year. All Ph.D. degree requirements must be completed by the date of appointment.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. To be seriously considered, candidates should substantively discuss in their application materials how they design their courses, develop an inclusive climate in the classroom, and in other ways support a broad range of social, cultural, and learning differences to ensure that all students thrive.

The Economics Department at Bates is a vibrant community of faculty and students committed to an economics education that is grounded in theory and empirical analysis, and which culminates in an independent capstone research experience for every major. We believe that active engagement with research is critical to informed teaching, and evidence that we highly value research is apparent in the research track records of our faculty, our external seminar series, and our internal brown bag series. Economics is consistently one of the most popular majors at Bates, including substantial student involvement, e.g., with the organization Women in Economics @ Bates.
