Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Department of Economics at the College of Wooster invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level, effective Fall 2024. Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. completed (or completion anticipated) in Economics, Business Economics, or a closely related discipline. Interdisciplinary candidates are encouraged to apply.

We are especially interested in hiring faculty who can contribute to the intellectual vibrancy and diversity of the academic community through their teaching, research, and service. We enroll a racially, socioeconomically, and culturally diverse student population of approximately 2,000 undergraduate students, of which 6% identify as Latinx; 9%, as Black/African American; 4%, as Asian; 4%, as multiracial; and 61%, as white. Fifteen percent (15%) of our students are studying on international visas. Twenty-five percent (25%) are Pell-eligible and 11% are first-generation college students.

The research and/or teaching experience of the successful candidate must be related to the fields of Environmental, Ecological, Climate, or Resource Economics. We seek candidates that connect the environment to economic, social, and political systems, or use spatial reasoning and methodologies. Complementary interests in Global Urban Economic Issues such as mobility, environmental justice, collaborative, and public provisioning of environmental or ecosystem services, are also welcomed.

We encourage applications from candidates who embrace interdisciplinarity and methodological pluralism in their scholarship and/or teaching. In addition to offering elective courses related to their expertise, the successful candidate will make regular contributions to introductory and intermediate departmental courses, the College’s First-Year Seminar, and will advise undergraduate thesis projects as a part of the College’s Independent Study Program. Including credit given for thesis supervision, tenure-track faculty teach the equivalent of 5.5 courses per year (2 courses per semester plus thesis mentoring).

Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, unofficial graduate transcripts, evidence of strong teaching (such as a teaching philosophy and student evaluations), a research statement, job market paper, a diversity statement detailing how the applicant has engaged and/or expects to engage with issues of diversity and inclusion in the classroom and campus community, and 3 letters of reference. Applications received through the JOE portal by November 27 will receive full consideration. Please direct questions about the position to Brooke Krause ( or Melanie Long (
