Position Summary:

Rollins College, the first institution of higher learning in Florida, is a small liberal arts college in Winter Park, historically emphasizing innovative and quality teaching in a small class setting. The Department of Economics at Rollins College seeks two tenure track Assistant Professors to begin Fall 2018.

We seek candidates with expertise in microeconomic theory with a focus on Labor, Income Distribution, Industrial Organization, Public Finance, and Behavioral Economics.  A proven ability to teach all traditional core courses in economics including Statistics is a must. We expect the ideal candidates to also be attracted to exploring alternative conceptual and ideological perspectives and to contribute to a pluralist economics department and evolving curriculum.

Rollins College is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment and strongly encourages applications from minorities and women. The teaching load is 3 courses a semester, including the core courses in the major, electives and possibly teaching in the evening program in the Hamilton Holt School.  

Candidates must hold a PhD degree in Economics at the time of the hire, and must demonstrate both excellence in teaching at the instructor level or above, as well as a record of scholarship. Rollins College provides good support for career development in both areas.

Through its mission to create global citizens, Rollins College is firmly committed to creating a just community that embraces diversity and inclusion; persons from historically under-represented minority groups are encouraged to apply. All candidates should be prepared to address (in the online application and throughout the interview process) their ability to contribute to and sustain a diverse and inclusive environment through teaching, scholarship, and service.

Rollins College is a comprehensive, liberal arts college located just north of Orlando, FL, a diverse metropolitan community with a thriving economic and cultural scene. Nearby, Orlando International Airport provides easy access to U.S. and international destinations. The College emphasizes innovative and quality teaching in small classes, and ranks number one among 121 Southern master’s-level universities in the annual rankings of “America’s Best Colleges,” released by U.S. News & World Report.
