Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Bates College Economics Department invites applications for a one-year visiting position in macroeconomics, beginning on August 1, 2024. The successful candidate must combine research in their field(s) of specialization with a willingness to teach introductory economics and electives in their areas of expertise. Additionally, candidates should demonstrate preparedness to mentor undergraduate research. We are open to all subfields of macroeconomics. Candidates who have demonstrated success working with underrepresented and marginalized populations are especially encouraged to apply. The teaching load is five courses per academic year.

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.

Please submit the following materials: cover letter, curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts, a recent research paper, a teaching statement which significantly addresses equity and inclusion, a research statement, teaching evaluations (if applicable), and three letters of recommendation. All Ph.D. degree requirements must be completed by the date of appointment. Employment is contingent upon successful completion of a background check.
