The Williams College Economics Department is seeking to make two tenure-track appointments and one visiting appointment beginning fall of 2013, and we invite applications. While our searches are focused on economic development, political economy, and environmental economics, we will consider candidates with exceptional research and teaching promise in any field. Candidates should have a Ph.D. completed, or expect to complete their Ph.D., by September 2013. We welcome applications from those seeking positions at the advanced assistant professor level. Senior appointments will be considered in exceptional circumstances. Williams College is a highly selective institution, ranked as the top liberal arts college by US News and World Report. We are a department of active scholars (http://econ.williams.edu/) and currently have 22 tenured or tenure-track faculty members. In addition to our undergraduate program, we operate and staff the Center for Development Economics (http://cde.williams.edu/) offering an MA in Policy Economics. Applicants should send curriculum vitae, professional papers, teaching evaluations and ensure that three letters of reference are submitted on their behalf. All offers of employment are contingent upon completion of a background check. Further information is available at: http://dean-faculty.williams.edu/prospective-faculty/background-check-policy/.
