We have an opening for a tenure track heterodox economist, with any field
of specialization, and we can hire at any rack. For candidates at the

expedited (usually two year) tenure clock. See the job description below
for more details.
Best,

B5 Current Heterodox Approaches

Bucknell University’s Department of Economics invites interested candidates
to apply for a tenure-track position in economics with a specialization in
current heterodox approaches beginning in August 2022. The search is open
to candidates of any rank.

We seek a teacher-scholar with a Ph.D. in economics by the start of the
appointment. Candidates in the final stages of completing their degree
requirements will be considered. Candidates should demonstrate expertise in
heterodox research in economics, and excellence in undergraduate teaching
of economics to a diverse student body. The successful candidate will teach
five courses per year, develop a strong body of scholarship in their field
of specialization, and participate in service activities at the department,
college, or university level, or in the wider academic community.

Teaching responsibilities include multiple sections of a broadly based,
pluralist principles course and elective courses taught from a heterodox
perspective. We are also interested in candidates who could contribute to
the university’s general education curriculum.

The Department of Economics is especially interested in candidates whose
teaching and research will contribute to the department’s commitment to
diversity and academic excellence, and whose courses will expose students
to a variety of intellectual, racial, ethnic, gendered and cultural
perspectives. We welcome candidates who demonstrate excellence in
reflective multicultural and inclusive teaching practices and who display a
strong commitment to collaboration and interdisciplinarity. The department
is also committed to pluralism in economics and values diversity of
economic perspectives including both mainstream and heterodox economics.

For additional information and to apply, please go to jobs.bucknell.edu.
The application should include (1) a cover letter, (2) a curriculum vita,
(3) a teaching portfolio (a statement of teaching philosophy, course
evaluations and syllabi if available), (4) a research statement and
research sample, (5) a statement describing past experience, training, or
engagement with issues of diversity, equity and inclusion, including
efforts to work with and support students in an inclusive manner and
incorporating topics related to diversity into your courses, and (6)
official graduate school transcripts if recently graduated. (7) Three
letters of recommendation are required and must be submitted separately to
the website. Materials received by December 1, 2021 will receive full
attention.

Questions about the position should be addressed by email to Professor
