The Department of Economics, Business, and Finance at Lake Forest College anticipates filling one tenure-track position at the assistant professor level beginning fall 2022. The Economics, Business and Finance faculty believe equity and inclusion are key to fostering diversity, a hallmark of a liberal arts education, and promoting academic excellence. We are actively seeking candidates whose professional and lived experiences strengthen their ability to teach and mentor students of various backgrounds and identities. Successful applicants must be able to teach Intermediate Macroeconomics and International Economics courses. The teaching load is 3-3, though the number of annual course preparations is usually held to four. A fully funded one-semester research sabbatical is available for tenure-track faculty after successful completion of the third-year review. Faculty members at Lake Forest College are expected to develop an active research agenda that leads to peer-reviewed publications, and mentoring students in research is desired. The position requires a Ph.D. in economics (or ABD status with Ph.D. completed by the start date). Research in any economics field and from any theoretical perspective is acceptable. Interested applicants can learn more about the department at www.lakeforest.edu/academics/programs/economics/.

A highly selective liberal arts college located on Chicago’s North Shore, Lake Forest College enrolls approximately 1,600 students from over 43 states and 73 countries. Lake Forest College is one of the most diverse small colleges in the Midwest with nearly 40% of our student body comprised of domestic minority and international students.
