Bucknell University's Department of Economics invites interested candidates to apply for a tenure-track position in economics with a specialization in current heterodox approaches beginning in August 2022. The search is open to candidates of any rank.
We seek a teacher-scholar with a Ph.D. in economics by the start of the appointment. Candidates in the final stages of completing their degree requirements will be considered. Candidates should demonstrate expertise in heterodox research in economics, and excellence in undergraduate teaching of economics to a diverse student body. The successful candidate will teach five courses per year, develop a strong body of scholarship in their field of specialization, and participate in service activities at the department, college, or university level, or in the wider academic community.
Teaching responsibilities include multiple sections of a broadly based, pluralist principles course and elective courses taught from a heterodox perspective. We are also interested in candidates who could contribute to the university's general education curriculum.
The Department of Economics is especially interested in candidates whose teaching and research will contribute to the department's commitment to diversity and academic excellence, and whose courses will expose students to a variety of intellectual, racial, ethnic, gendered and cultural perspectives. We welcome candidates who demonstrate excellence in reflective multicultural and inclusive teaching practices and who display a strong commitment to collaboration and interdisciplinarity.
For additional information and to apply, please go to . The application should include (1) a cover letter, (2) a curriculum vita, (3) a teaching portfolio (a statement of teaching philosophy, course evaluations and syllabi if available), (4) a research statement and research sample, (5) a statement describing past experience, training, or engagement with issues of diversity, equity and inclusion, including efforts to work with and support students in an inclusive manner and incorporating topics related to diversity into your courses, and (6) official graduate school transcripts if recently graduated.
