Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Department of Economics of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University invites applications for a full-time tenure-track appointment as Assistant Professor of Economics beginning August 2021. Review of applications begins on November 13, 2020 and continues until the position is filled.

We seek an economist committed to undergraduate teaching who specializes in macroeconomics, with a preferred subspecialty in international economics. The successful candidate will regularly teach Principles of Economics, Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory, advanced courses, such as international economics, and, periodically, the department's capstone course. The candidate will also be expected to teach periodically in the colleges' general education curriculum and will have the opportunity to participate in interdisciplinary programs, such as Asian Studies, Gender Studies, Latino/Latin American Studies, and the McCarthy Center for Public Policy and Civic Engagement. Other responsibilities include advising students regarding academic and life goals and participation in faculty governance at the departmental and campus level.

PhD in Economics (preferred at time of application, required by September 1, 2021). Applicants are required to have a specialty in macroeconomics, and a willingness to teach other economics courses, such as the macroeconomic aspects of international economics. A subspecialty in empirical economic methods is preferred.
Applicants must have strong teaching skills, demonstrated by successful solo teaching (preferred) or at least successful teaching as a TA. They must have effective written and oral communication skills, a strong commitment to inclusion and the desire to work with students from diverse backgrounds, a strong commitment to undergraduate education and liberal arts education, including a strong interest in linking economics to larger human questions inside and outside the discipline. Because the College of Saint Benedict is a college for women, the Department is especially interested in encouraging women to major in economics. Thus, candidates are required to indicate how they would encourage and support women in economics if appointed to the position. Candidates must have strong research skills and a commitment to professional growth in teaching and scholarship.

The Department of Economics is lively and collegial and comprises economists from various sub-disciplines, but all are dedicated to helping students understand the practical implications of their undergraduate economics courses, not only for a career but also for more responsible citizenship in service to the common good. Small class size allows faculty to get to know students to the benefit of both.
