The Department of Economics at the University of Denver seeks to fill a non-tenure-track Teaching Assistant Professor starting September 2020. We are seeking a heterodox economist who shows excellent ability in teaching some elective courses that are solely for undergraduate students as well as courses for the university’s General Education curriculum. Candidates must also show excellent teaching ability in our introductory courses “Macro- and Microeconomics I: History and Theories” and/or “Macro- and Microeconomics II: Theories and Policies.” Teaching these courses requires familiarity with economic history, the history of economic thought, philosophy of social science, and heterodox as well as mainstream perspectives on economic theory and policy. Candidates must demonstrate ability to integrate content and issues relating to, and to work effectively with ethnically/racially diverse populations. Additionally, they are encouraged to integrate service-learning, experiential learning, and other community engagement teaching methods into their courses. The teaching load is eight 4-hour courses per academic year that is spread over three 10-week quarters. This position also requires the occupant to contribute to the life and operation of the Department through, for instance, participation in faculty meetings and providing services.
