The Department of Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Arts (HSA) at Harvey Mudd College invites applications for a tenure-track position in economics, beginning fall 2023. We seek candidates who inspire students to understand the larger historical, cultural and social contexts of which economics is a part. The ideal candidate will have expertise in environmental economics, an interest in teaching writing, and scholarship that both contributes to the discipline and enriches the classroom. The teaching load includes at least one foundational course in economics; a writing-intensive first-year research seminar; and classes focused on environmental economics. Candidates are expected to contribute to the Core Curriculum through a first-year course in academic writing or a seminar centered on the relationship between science and society.

Candidates are expected to have completed the Ph.D. degree by fall 2023. The deadline for applications is December 1, 2022. Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter, CV, contact information for three references, course evaluations, a statement of teaching philosophy, a research statement, and two course proposals, including one in environmental economics. The one-page proposals should specify teaching strategies, selected readings, and student learning objectives. Candidates should address their interest and experience in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Materials can be uploaded to:

Those selected for the first round of interviews will be asked to submit additional materials, including letters of reference and a sample of scholarly work.
