Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Department of Economics seeks to hire a Teaching Assistant Professor (TAP; non-tenure-track) who will start September 1, 2023. To fill this position, we are seeking a heterodox economist who shows excellent ability in teaching. They must be able to offer required and elective courses in economics for undergraduate majors and minors as well as courses that contribute to the university’s Common Curriculum. Candidates must also show excellent teaching ability in our introductory courses, which requires familiarity with economic history, the history of economic thought, philosophy of social science, and heterodox as well as mainstream perspectives on economic theory and policy. Candidates must demonstrate the ability to integrate content that addresses different experiences across diverse populations, and pedagogical practices that foster equity and inclusion of students from a wide variety of historically excluded intersecting identities. Additionally, they are encouraged to integrate service-learning, experiential learning, and other community engagement teaching methods into their courses. The teaching load is eight 4-credit-hour courses per academic year, spread over three 10-week quarters. This position requires contribution to the life and operation of the Department through participation in faculty meetings and service to the Department, College, and University.
The University of Denver recognizes that its success in being a great university dedicated to the public good depends greatly on how well it engages, supports, and champions the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. As part of our intentionality in recruiting and retaining faculty from a wide variety of historically excluded intersecting identities, including those from communities of color, with diverse gender and sexual identities, first-generation college graduates, or with disabilities, new faculty will have the opportunity to choose to participate in a university-wide initiative. This initiative will connect new colleagues in a cohort, building community across units with supportive programming led by the Office of the Vice Provost of Faculty Affairs in collaboration with the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and each faculty participant’s academic unit.
