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 2021-22 academic year.

The individual must have a research field in public economics or the economics of gender. The primary teaching requirement will be an upper level elective (200- or 300-level) course in public economics or the economics of gender and one or more service courses, either statistics/econometrics or principles. 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. The University provides a generous parental leave policy and is responsive to the needs of dual career couples.

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

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.”

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 goals. Evidence of teaching excellence should include numerical course evaluations of courses taught as a sole instructor and a relevant comparison group. The statement supporting diversity and inclusion should indicate how the candidate is prepared to contribute to the university’s goals of developing a diverse workforce and student body and to supporting an inclusive campus community, and may also describe any previous experience with mentoring women or other groups underrepresented in the economics profession. Review of applications will commence on December 1, 2020, and continue until the position is filled.
