Founded in 1969, Stockton University, New Jersey’s Distinctive Public University, is also one of America’s most distinctive public universities, consistently ranking among the nation’s finest educational institutions and among the top ten public Master’s institutions in the Northeast. Stockton proudly offers the academic, technological, and cultural advantages of a large institution combined with the community spirit of a small liberal arts college. Stockton is noted for combining an outstanding interdisciplinary approach to graduate and undergraduate education with all the qualities of an outstanding employer. We offer a unique vibrant working environment, a wealth of work related opportunities and outstanding employee benefits.  Stockton is committed to attracting, encouraging and retaining a qualified workforce to support the mission of the University.    The University is located in the Pinelands National Reserve in southern New Jersey, about one hour from Philadelphia, two hours from New York City, three hours from the Baltimore/Washington area, and 20 minutes from Atlantic City.  The University’s location, active, stimulating campus life and diverse community make Stockton University a great place to work!

The Economics Program invites applications for a tenure-track position beginning September 1, 2018.  Stockton offers a B.A. degree in Economics as well as a minor in Economics. The teaching load is three 4-credit courses per semester.


Because the program has heavy service demands to other majors such as Business, Social Work, Political Science, and Mathematics, the candidate should be prepared to teach both macroeconomics and microeconomics at the introductory level on a regular basis, in addition to an upper-level course in at least one of the following areas: Money and Financial Institutions, Public Finance, or Law and Economics.

Applicants will be expected to have a research program, perhaps tied to this upper-level field. An ideal candidate would also be prepared to rotate through at least one of the following required courses for majors: Econometrics, Intermediate Macroeconomics, or Intermediate Microeconomics. As reflected in its core curriculum, the program is dedicated to pluralism and diversity in economics, thus heterodox applicants are encouraged to apply. Stockton offers opportunities for interdisciplinary teaching and engagement. In fact, all Stockton faculty are expected to teach 1-to-2 interdisciplinary general studies courses annually as part of one’s regular teaching load. Faculty also serve as academic advisors for undergraduate students.

All Stockton faculty members are expected to demonstrate, through past accomplishments and actions, the ability to support Stockton University’s diversity commitment and strong student-centered vision and mission.
