Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Bates College Economics Department invites applications for a tenure track position in applied microeconomics. We intend to hire at the rank of assistant professor, but exceptional senior candidates will also be considered. We are especially interested in candidates using empirical causal inference methods. We are also interested in candidates that have a strong computational background, conduct research using modern computational methods, and can teach these methods at the undergraduate level. Candidates who can enhance the diversity of the faculty and/or who have demonstrated success working with and supporting an increasingly diverse student body are encouraged to apply. The successful candidates will combine teaching and research in their field(s) of specialization with the expectation to regularly teach one or more core courses in our major: Principles of Economics, Intermediate Microeconomics, Statistics, and Econometrics. We are also interested in colleagues who can support interdisciplinary programs across the curriculum. The annual teaching load is 5 courses. The appointment begins on August 1, 2023.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. To be seriously considered, candidates should substantively discuss in their application materials how they design their courses, develop an inclusive climate in the classroom, and in other ways support a broad range of social, cultural, and learning differences to ensure that all students thrive.
The Economics Department at Bates is a vibrant community of faculty and students committed to an economics education that is grounded in theory and empirical analysis. We believe that active engagement with research is critical to informed teaching, and evidence that we highly value research is apparent in the research track records of our faculty, our external seminar series, and our internal brown bag series. Economics is consistently one of the most popular majors at Bates, including substantial student involvement, e.g., with the organization Women in Economics @ Bates.

Deadline: Nov 15, 2022

Please submit the following materials: cover letter, curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts, a research paper, statements on diversity, teaching, and research, teaching evaluations, and three confidential letters of recommendation. Also, please describe your willingness and preparedness for teaching core courses. All Ph.D. degree requirements must be completed by the date of appointment. Employment is contingent upon successful completion of a background check. For more information about the college, please visit the Bates website:
