Assistant Professor in Environmental Economics

The Department of Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Arts (HSA) at Harvey Mudd College seeks applications for a tenure-track position in environmental economics, beginning fall, 2022. We seek candidates who will teach five undergraduate courses per year, including at least one foundational course in economics; a writing-intensive first-year research seminar; and courses from within their specialization. Specialized courses should include environmental economics and might also address areas such as feminist economics, economics of racism, macroeconomics, development economics, labor economics, and labor and environment. Heterodox approaches, including Marxist economics, critical political economy, post-Keynesian economics, and ecological economics, are welcome, though not required.

Candidates should have completed the Ph.D. degree, have well-developed research interests articulated in a research statement, and demonstrate excellence in teaching undergraduates attested to in teaching evaluations and a thoughtful statement of pedagogy. Demonstrated engagement with teaching students from diverse backgrounds is required.

The deadline for applications is September 21, 2021. Applicants should submit a covering letter of application, CV, contact information for three references, course evaluations, a statement of teaching philosophy, a research statement, and syllabi of three proposed courses. We invite candidates to address their interests, experience, and future plans for promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout the application package. Those applicants who are selected for the first round of interviews will be asked to submit additional materials, including letters of reference and a sample of scholarly work. Materials can be uploaded to: https: //

Harvey Mudd College is a highly selective, residential liberal arts college for STEM education, located in Claremont, California. The high caliber of Harvey Mudd students is one of the defining features of the college. In 2020, the acceptance rate was 10 percent, and the average SAT scores of admitted students commonly rank within the top ten of US universities. Harvey Mudd ranks second among the nation's universities for the highest percentage of graduates subsequently earning science and engineering doctorates. An Equal Opportunity Employer, the College is committed to fostering diversity and inclusion in its faculty, staff, and student body. We welcome applications from scholars from a wide variety of backgrounds including those typically underrepresented in college faculties.

The HSA Department offers a broad-based liberal arts program with considerable interaction among faculty representing about fourteen disciplines, and an interest in integrative and interdisciplinary work. The teaching load is five semester-courses a year, including a writing-intensive first-year research seminar. HSA faculty also regularly contribute to the first-year, college-wide Core writing seminar. While HMC does not offer majors in HSA disciplines, as part of the Claremont Consortium, our faculty have significant opportunities for cooperation and collaboration with colleagues at the Claremont Colleges and Claremont Graduate University, all a short walking distance away.

Harvey Mudd College is located in Claremont, California, which is approximately 35 miles east of Los Angeles, at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains. Compensation is competitive with comparable institutions and includes a full health and retirement benefits package, a slate of teaching and research development opportunities, and relocation costs.
