Candidates must be able to contribute to teaching finance core courses (i.e., Foundations of Corporate Finance, Investment Analysis and Portfolio Management, and Senior Seminar) in addition to courses in the candidate’s area of specialization. A strong commitment to teaching undergraduates in a liberal-arts setting for a diverse body of students and evidence of effective and inclusive teaching is essential.

Funding is available for professional development and research with undergraduate students.
DePauw’s Gold and Bold 2027 Strategic Plan includes launching a new School of Business and Leadership and a new school that focuses on Creative practice. To help us launch these schools, we seek a cohort of faculty with experience at a range of institutions, including international institutions, HBCUs and HSIs. We further seek candidates who bring diverse perspectives and who can integrate traditional liberal arts approaches (e.g., critical thinking; ethical reasoning; connecting disciplines to domestic issues of diversity, equity and inclusion as well as to global perspectives; interdisciplinarity; written and oral communication) into their courses and research programs. Contributions may be made through inclusive pedagogies, inclusive syllabi, choice of research agendas within the area of expertise and/or through contributions to interdisciplinary programs that diversify DePauw’s curriculum (e.g., Africana Studies, Asian Studies, Hispanic Studies, Global Health, Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies). A complete list of academic programs is available here.
