Faculty Position in Economics
Bard College at Simon’s Rock invites applicants for a regular full-time position in the Division of Social Studies beginning Fall 2014. We are interested in teacher-scholars whose interests and qualifications bring together economics and politics with methodologies broadly within the social sciences, and who have the ability to help students make connections between economics and other liberal arts disciplines. Applicants may have their primary research home in any of the social sciences, but must be able to teach the fundamentals of economics, as well as a range of intermediate and advanced courses of their own design. These courses will ideally integrate economics with other areas of inquiry, e.g., international political economy, history of economic thought, economics issues or topics in, international politics, international relations, public and social policy, legislation and government, urban politics, technology, or contemporary financial and political systems. The successful candidate will teach three classes each semester (including one per year in the College’s interdisciplinary general education seminars) and supervise independent studies and senior theses.
An ongoing commitment to professional development is required. Ph.D. and some teaching experience are expected; advanced ABD candidates will be considered. Bard College at Simon’s Rock seeks to broaden the range of perspectives within the faculty and encourages applications from members of underrepresented groups.
To apply, email your cover letter, CV, writing sample, student evaluations (if applicable), and statements of your approaches to teaching and research, to the Social Studies Search Committee at email@example.com. Please indicate “Economics/Social Studies Job Application” in the subject line. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2013. Have three reference letters emailed directly.
