The Department of Economics at Union College invites applications for a tenure-track position in Macroeconomics, beginning September 1, 2022.  Hiring is conditional on budget capacity. We have some preference for a macroeconomist with expertise in either open-economy macroeconomics or financial economics.  Applications from candidates in other fields of macroeconomics will also be considered, particularly when their work could contribute to Union's broad array of interdisciplinary programs.  The successful candidate will have an active research agenda in macroeconomics and be expected to teach Intermediate Macroeconomics and elective courses.

Union College recognizes the rich possibilities of interdisciplinary studies by offering many opportunities for both faculty and students to engage with multiple disciplines - and each other - in collaborative classroom settings, innovative majors, and unique research initiatives.  Applications from candidates who can offer courses that contribute to our interdisciplinary programs or General Education curriculum are particularly welcome.
