    Position Details: Gustavus Adolphus College invites applications for a tenure-track position of Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics and Management to begin September 1, 2022.

    Institution Information: Gustavus Adolphus College seeks employees who are committed to and will be resolute in advancing inclusion and equity. We seek candidates whose experience has prepared them to help us realize our college-wide goal of engagement and inclusion of culturally and racially diverse audiences in the humanities, arts, and sciences. The Gustavus Acts strategic plan renews our commitment to equip students to lead purposeful lives, and to act on the great challenges of our time by diversifying and expanding the Gustavus community and delivering a distinctive and integrated liberal arts education.

    Minnesota is home to a vibrant Black American community and growing communities of Hmong, Latinx, and Somali peoples, as well as significant numbers of Indigenous people. We believe that representation from all of these groups contributes positively to our student body.

    We are committed to fostering a community that embodies the value of a liberal arts education rooted in pluralism. We engage in this work at a coeducational, private, Lutheran (ELCA) College of Swedish immigrant heritage that is a leading residential, national liberal arts institution of 2200 students.

    Department Information: Along with the Management major, the Economics and Management Department is also home for Accounting and Economics majors.

The department intentionally prepares students for workplace and career success with its many opportunities for students to get involved in clubs, alumni networking events, business site visits, academic competitions, and internships. Our collaborative and experienced faculty members foster mentoring relationships and have meaningful professional experience to share with students.
