The Department of Economics at Mount Holyoke College invites applications for two full-time visiting faculty positions to begin in the fall of 2020. The first position is a non-renewable one-year visiting lecturer. The second position is a two-year visiting lecturer with the possibility of a one-year renewal.

The positions are 3/2 teaching load.  Areas of study/specialization are open, with the expectation that successful candidates can teach introductory economics. We welcome applicants who offer courses in fields not currently covered. The successful candidates will have a demonstrated record of strong teaching at the undergraduate level and experience mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion.  Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. by start of appointment.

Applications must be made online at https://jobs.mtholyoke.edu/. Please submit a cover letter, CV, and three statements concerning (1) teaching philosophy, (2) research interests, and (3) mentoring a diverse student body. Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of reference submitted on their behalf. We recommend early submission because electronic prompts to referees will be generated automatically (and letters of reference accepted) only after the completed application has been submitted. Applications will be considered until the position is filled.  Please contact the Economics Department (econ@mtholyoke.edu) with any questions.

All offers of employment are contingent upon the finalist successfully passing a background (including criminal records) check.
