The Jackson School (JSIS) seeks an outstanding teacher to introduce core concepts of economics to non-economics majors, and teach more specialized courses in areas such as the economics of international development, international trade and finance, international political economy and related fields. Candidates with an area of geographic specialization and expertise are particularly encouraged to apply. Experience teaching in an online environment will be an asset. This position emphasizes teaching, but we welcome applicants with active and continuing research interests and publications.
JSIS offers interdisciplinary degrees at the BA, MA, and Ph.D. level, focusing on global, regional, national, and thematic issues. JSIS is seeking educators who can explain core economic concepts to students in a way that demonstrates both the advantages and limitations of applying pure economic reasoning to complex realities.
The Lecturer will teach two courses per quarter during each academic year (six courses total). This is a full-time, nine-month position, with an initial appointment of three years, and the possibility of renewal. The appointment will begin on September 16, 2014. A Ph.D., or foreign equivalent, by date of appointment is strongly preferred. This doctoral degree need not be in economics but applicants must demonstrate strong competencies in economics, through advanced degrees in related fields or through practice. Applicants should have at least one quarter or semester of full-time college teaching as instructor of record.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, brief statement of teaching philosophy and experience, evidence of successful teaching (course evaluations), and three letters of recommendation (that address the applicant’s teaching ability). The position is open until filled, but priority will be given to applications received before December 30, 2013.
Materials should be sent as PDFs with the subject heading “Economics Lecturer” by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
