We also have an interest in the ability to teach one or more of the following courses: Industrial Organization, Labor Economics, Economic History, and possibly a business course, such as Management, Marketing, or Accounting. 

Candidates must submit evidence of teaching excellence (for example, student evaluations) at the undergraduate level and must have a PhD or ABD in Economics, or a closely related Business discipline, from an accredited institution. Candidates must demonstrate skills in understanding cultural differences; a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; the ability to serve as an advocate for individuals of all ethnicities, genders, ages, and backgrounds; and passion about working in an organization that values and promotes diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism. 

Review of applications will begin in October 2021, and continue until the position is filled. Applications received by December 2, 2021 will receive full consideration. Questions about the position may be directed to the Chair of the Search Committee, Dr. Kanybek Nur-tegin, at knurtegi@fau.edu. 

The selected candidate must provide official transcripts scanned into an electronic format.
