The Department of Economics in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts at the University of Michigan seeks applicants with a Ph.D. for full time Lecturer III positions.

This is a non-tenure track position, with a University Year appointment period (i.e., runs September 1 through May 31 each year).

We anticipate this position will be full-time, and we anticipate it will begin August 29, 2022. A typical full-time (100% effort) load for a Lecturer III in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts is three (3) courses per semester, or the equivalent in administrative and/or service duties.

The initial appointment period for these positions is three years. The appointment is renewable (based on programmatic need, funding, and performance) and subject to final approval by the College.

Duties and responsibilities for this Lecturer III position are expected to include but are not limited to teaching introductory and intermediate level undergraduate courses in macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics, introductory master’s courses (focusing on econometrics) and participating in the academic advising of undergraduate students.

Qualified candidates will have a Ph.D. in economics, a range of instructional expertise, and have extensive background in pedagogy related to economics instruction. Strong preference will be given to candidates with degree specialization or experience teaching in econometrics, financial economics, or related fields. In addition, qualified applicants should have five or more years of teaching experience and familiarity with the academic advising of undergraduate students. Excellence in teaching and instructional service will be the principal criteria used to select the successful candidate.

This position is covered under the collective bargaining agreement between the U-M and the Lecturers Employee Organization, AFL-CIO, which contains and settles all matters with respect to wages, benefits, hours and other terms and conditions of employment.

The University of Michigan conducts background checks on all job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background checks. Background checks will be performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
