The Economics Program of Bard College invites applications for a full-time visiting assistant position specializing in Financial Economics. This is a 1 to 3 year visiting position, with the possibility for conversion to a tenure track, subject to institutional approval. We are interested in candidates whose work complements the department’s existing pluralistic orientation.
A highly selective liberal arts college, Bard is committed to innovative teaching and interdisciplinary curricular programs. The Bard campus is the home of the Levy Economics Institute and its innovative M.S. program in Economic Theory and Policy. The Levy Institute, which hosts conferences and seminars and publishes research on matters of economic policy, offers opportunities to faculty and students not typically available at an undergraduate college.
The successful candidate will teach finance courses (Accounting, Foundations of Finance and Investment, and Corporate Finance), other core economics courses, as well as electives in his or her specialty.
Candidates should be broadly trained, with active research agenda, and show promise of significant contributions to the discipline. Research areas of particular interest include but are not limited to financialization, liberalization, shadow banking, financial regulation, and globalization of finance.
Excellence in teaching at the undergraduate level in the liberal arts tradition and integration of teaching and research are of primary importance. Familiarity with Bloomberg terminal and data is desired.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, examples of published research and working papers, a statement of research interests, a statement of teaching philosophy and evidence of teaching excellence through Interfolio.com at: http://apply.interfolio.com/60361.
