Assistant Professor of Economics - 000153

The Department of Economics in the Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond invites applications for a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor of Economics for the 2020-21 academic year.

The individual must have a research field in public economics. The primary teaching requirement will be a course in public economics and several service courses, either statistics/econometrics or principles. A secondary field in health economics is a plus. The teaching load is 3-2 (with 1 or 2 preps each term) and applicants must have at least one year of successful teaching experience as a sole instructor, not as a teaching assistant.

For full consideration, applicants should specify in a separate document how they are prepared to contribute to the university’s goals of developing a diverse workforce and student body and to supporting an inclusive campus community. The University of Richmond values the expression of differences in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success.

The University of Richmond is a private university located just a short drive from downtown Richmond, Virginia. Through its five schools and wide array of campus programming, the University combines the best qualities of a small liberal arts college and a large university. With nearly 4,000 students, an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, and more than 90% of traditional undergraduate students living on campus, the University is remarkably student-centered, focused on preparing students “to live lives of purpose, thoughtful inquiry, and responsible leadership in a global and pluralistic society.”

The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment. For more information on the department and its programs, please see

To apply, please submit the following materials on-line at the JOE network (a) cover letter, (b) curriculum vitae, (c) job market paper, (d) teaching statement, (e) evidence of teaching excellence, (f) names and e-mail addresses of three references, and (g) statement supporting diversity and inclusion. The teaching statement should articulate the candidate’s teaching philosophy, interests, and future professional development goals. Evidence of teaching excellence should include numerical course evaluations of courses taught as a sole instructor and a relevant comparison group. Review of applications will commence on November 1, 2019, and continue until the position is filled.
