The successful candidate will possess a Ph.D. in Economics or a related discipline (ABDs near completion will be considered) and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service to the campus community. He/she will teach Principles of Economics, Intermediate Macroeconomics, and Money and Banking. He/she will also be responsible for coaching and teaching the Mount’s Federal Reserve Challenge Team. The Fed Challenge is an intercollegiate competition sponsored by the Federal Reserve System in which student teams discuss current economic conditions and present their case for monetary policy to Federal Reserve economists. The Bolte School is dedicated to providing graduates with a solid foundation in analysis and ethical decision-making using a variety of interactive techniques such as cases, simulations, and other experiential learning activities.

Mount St. Mary’s University is the second oldest Catholic university in America. Located on 1,400 acres, just outside of Baltimore and Washington, D.C., the Mount offers a rigorous liberal arts education featuring a nationally recognized core curriculum and outstanding faculty with a 14:1 student to teacher ratio. The 2300-student comprehensive university is a vibrant academic community where the words Faith, Discovery, Leadership, and Community are used to describe its collective calling and promise.

Beyond disciplinary expertise, Mount St. Mary’s seeks faculty members eager to engage and support our Catholic identity. Application materials should discuss how you might contribute to the University’s Catholic liberal arts mission, how your work engages with the Catholic intellectual tradition, or how your own faith tradition informs your vocation as teacher and scholar. Please email cover letter and vita by April 15 to or to Dr. Karl W. Einolf, Dean, Bolte School of Business. Initial interviews may be conducted by phone or Skype.
