Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Economics Division at Babson College invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor in Applied Microeconomics. We are looking for candidates who are committed to excellence in teaching, applied research, and service.

A Ph.D. in Economics is required, though an ABD with a firm completion date by spring 2024 will also be considered. Candidates must have demonstrated evidence of teaching excellence, be ready to teach in an integrated, cross-disciplinary environment, with a strong international study body, and have an active research agenda, primarily in applied microeconomics. The Babson Economics Division is open to candidates with a variety of micro-focused research areas, including international trade, behavioral economics, economics of sustainability and econometrics. Particularly welcome are candidates who can bridge the gap between theory and practice, by having meaningful professional experience, and who bring global perspectives to their teaching and research.

All candidates will be evaluated based on their potential for meaningful scholarship that will result in publications in recognized refereed journals. The new faculty member will be expected to teach microeconomics in our undergraduate business program and may also teach in Babson’s graduate MBA and specialized Master’s programs.

Babson College, located 14 miles west of Boston, is an independent school of management, acclaimed both nationally and internationally for its leadership in entrepreneurship education. While the college offers a wide range of business-related courses, it is also well known for its highly integrated, cross-disciplinary curriculum and the quality of its liberal arts courses. We seek faculty who are aligned with our values of teaching and scholarly excellence, collaboration, diversity, and inclusiveness and those who embrace our mission to educate leaders who create great economic and social value everywhere. We seek candidates who are eager to engage as educators among a diverse student community.

Babson College is an EO/AA employer committed to fostering a diverse community.
