Assistant Professor Economics

The Department of Economics and Business invites applications for a full-time tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level in Economics beginning Fall 2023. We are looking for candidates with teaching experience in principles and, especially, macroeconomics. Although the main teaching responsibility of the position is intermediate macroeconomics, the successful candidate is expected to add depth and breadth of the Department’s course offerings and participate in the senior thesis program.

The successful candidate is expected to have a Ph.D. in Economics, at least one year of experience teaching economics, and an active scholarship agenda appropriate for a Liberal Arts institution. The successful candidate must demonstrate a genuine desire to teach and participate fully in a liberal arts environment that emphasizes close student-faculty interactions. Kalamazoo College offers a two-course-per-term teaching load over three terms (six courses in total).

Kalamazoo College has made a commitment to inclusive excellence. We especially encourage applications from candidates whose intellectual and pedagogical approaches to the discipline will be effective in attracting and retaining historically underrepresented students. The successful applicant will demonstrate a strong commitment to working with students, faculty and staff from diverse social, cultural, and economic backgrounds.

Kalamazoo College is a liberal arts college offering an integrated undergraduate experience that weaves a traditional liberal arts curriculum into educational experiences and civic engagement in both domestic and international settings. As such, it attracts students from diverse backgrounds interested in social justice and activism. The College is a member of the Posse Program and home to the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership. It is located in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a diverse and vibrant city in south-western Michigan and home of the first nationwide city-based college tuition remission program, the Kalamazoo Promise. Sitting halfway between Chicago and Detroit, Kalamazoo is in a metropolitan community of 225,000 which contains a major state university along with numerous civic arts and cultural associations. The city has its own lively arts scene and is home to many art studios. Kalamazoo is also home to a large research university that shares many of its resources with members of the Kalamazoo College community. Thirty-five miles from the beautiful beaches and coastal towns of Lake Michigan, the area also offers many opportunities for outdoor activities.
