The Hope College Department of Economics & Business invites applications for an open rank business tenure-track position to start Fall 2020 (multiple positions: all business fields are encouraged to apply). Candidates should demonstrate an ability to combine teaching excellence with scholarly activity; a PhD is desired. Responsibilities include teaching, scholarly research, program leadership, and advising undergraduate students.
At Hope, we approach teaching, scholarship, and community a bit differently. For example, weseek candidates who (a) enjoy and pursue relevant scholarship as an important (but not sole) aspect of their career, (b) excel at rigorous and relational teaching (especially in applied environments), (c) fully live out their Christian faith, (d) seek an academic community and culture that wants you to succeed and to experience a holistic well-being, and (e) profess their academic discipline, yet seek to do so in the context of the liberal arts tradition.
Hope College is a Christian co-educational, residential liberal arts undergraduate college affiliated with the Reformed Church in America that aspires to be faithful, welcoming, and transformational. Therefore, the Department of Economics and Business shapes its identity on (a) a business curriculum grounded in the liberal arts tradition, (b) an intimate academic environment that includes local and global experiential learning opportunities that foster student/faculty collaboration, and (c) a Christian perspective that informs both our curriculum content and our teaching pedagogy.
Our faculty thrive in this unique environment. It also informs the qualities and aspirations we seek in the people we hire. Individually, we have an appreciation for the liberal arts and the freedom to cross disciplinary boundaries in our teaching and research. Collectively, our faculty has extensive professional experience in business and government, as well as academic backgrounds that range beyond conventional business and economic specializations. Finally, the vast international experiences of our faculty are important in educating people for leadership in a culturally diverse world.
Candidates should demonstrate an ability to combine teaching excellence with scholarly activity; a PhD is required. Inquiries about the position can be directed to Dr. Morgan Wilson, Search Committee Chair (email@example.com). Formal application and all relevant materials—including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts (unofficial version is acceptable for application), teaching evaluations, and a statement describing how the candidate’s faith aligns with the mission of Hope College—are to be submitted electronically to www.hope.edu/employment/faculty.
