The Department of Economics in the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure track position, starting in August 2022. We expect to hire at the Clinical Assistant Professor level. This position involves substantial teaching responsibilities in a wide range of both lower and upper level undergraduate courses. This position also involves significant program-building activities and departmental service responsibilities related to the School’s economics degree programs. The ideal candidate will have an interest in or even experience with developing online and hybrid courses, particularly for upper level and possibly MA courses. Applicants must have earned a Ph.D. in Economics or be ABD, but nearing completion.
Preference will be given to applicants with considerable teaching experience and/or evidence of the potential to be an outstanding instructor. Teaching experience or the ability to teach courses in any or several of the following areas at the undergraduate level are a plus: international economics, applied quantitative analysis, and money and banking, while at the same time heavily contributing to the core courses (principles of macroeconomics, principles of microeconomics, and/or global economics).
Salary is negotiable, based on qualifications and experience. Georgia State University’s Department of Economics is committed to advancing diversity in all areas of faculty effort, including scholarship, instruction, and service. Candidates should address at least one of these areas in a separate diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) statement, indicating past experiences, current interests or activities, and/or future goals that promote a climate of diversity, equity, and inclusion. To receive full consideration, complete applications must be received by November 15, 2021. Candidates will be considered until the position is filled.
