Job Description

Assistant Professor of Economics

Lafayette College Department of Economics

The Economics Department at Lafayette College invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level beginning July 1, 2023. Applicants should be committed to excellence in both undergraduate teaching and scholarly research. We seek applicants whose research and teaching focuses on the economics of race, ethnicity, social justice, inequality, opportunity and/or inclusive growth. We will consider candidates in any subfield of economics but are particularly interested in those with expertise in law and economics (K), industrial organization (L), economic history (N), or urban, regional, and real estate economics (R). The teaching load for this position is 4 courses in the first year and 5 courses thereafter. The college provides a paid pre-tenure research leave, mentoring, and research support. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in Economics or expect to complete all requirements by July 1, 2023.

Lafayette College is a highly selective, private undergraduate-only liberal arts college with 2,700 students located within 70 miles of New York City and Philadelphia. The Economics Department is comprised of 18 faculty members who are not only dedicated to teaching excellence but are also accomplished and engaged scholars in their fields. The College is deeply committed to creating a diverse community: one that is inclusive and responsive, and is supportive of each and all of its faculty, students, and staff. All members of the College community share in the responsibility for creating, maintaining, and developing a learning environment in which difference is valued, equity is sought, and inclusiveness is practiced. All Lafayette operations reflect the College’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, Access, and Inclusion (DEAI) initiatives, and Lafayette welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, a statement of teaching philosophy and interests, a statement of research interests, a curriculum vitae, and three letters of reference through Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/113314. Candidates should also submit a diversity statement that addresses how the applicant’s teaching, research, and/or service will support Lafayette’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, as articulated in the College’s diversity statement (http://www.lafayette.edu/about/diversity-statement). The application deadline is November 15, 2022 to be considered for an interview that will be conducted remotely in early January 2023 in accordance with AEA guidelines. Questions about the position should be directed to Prof. David Stifel, Search Committee Chair, at stifeld@lafayette.edu. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.
