Lecturer in Economics

Job description


Hartwick College, a nationally ranked, selective liberal arts and sciences institution, invites applications for multiple adjunct positions as an Adjunct Lecturer of Economics for the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 Semesters. The successful candidates will have the opportunity to teach three introductory sections of Principles of Microeconomics, our required course in Econometrics, and one or two elective courses, depending on their training and expertise. The opportunity to teach in future semesters may be available.

Qualifications include a M.A. in Economics or Finance. A.B.D. candidates are encouraged to apply, as this is an opportunity to gain teaching experience with coaching and mentoring by departmental faculty. From time-to-time, the college teaches courses using face-to-face, online distance learning, or in hybrid (online/distance learning and face-to-face mixed) formats, and faculty are expected to offer instruction with comparable content and similar assessments regardless of the modality of course delivery. In their cover letter, applicants should specify their willingness to teach in face-to-face, online and/or hybrid modalities and explain their experience with each. Applicants should be committed to teaching excellence. 

Located in the scenic Susquehanna River valley in Oneonta, NY, near the northern foothills of the Catskill Mountains, the College features a Liberal Arts in Practice general education curriculum and aspires to “be the best at melding liberal arts education with experiential learning.” Hartwick prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation/preference and gender identity/expression. Hartwick is an Equal Opportunity Employer, committed to broadening “the understanding, awareness, and appreciation of diversity among all members of the Hartwick community.” Women, minorities, and other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. 

Hartwick College is committed to providing a safe and secure educational and employment environment. Employment at Hartwick College is therefore contingent upon a successful background check on every new employee. Candidates to whom an offer of employment is made will be required to sign a Release of Information Form authorizing the College to conduct a thorough background check. Hartwick College is committed to a diverse candidate pool, values an inclusive workforce and workplace environment, and wishes to minimize or eliminate the impact of implicit bias during the search and hiring process.
