The Department of Economics and Business in the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership at the City College of New York seeks candidates for a Lecturer position in Economics to begin in Fall 2023. This is a teaching-oriented position. The Department is seeking two experienced lecturers in the discipline who can teach a broad range of courses in economics such as Microeconomics or Macroeconomics at the introductory and intermediate level, as well as specialized field courses in Finance, Accounting, Data Analytics or related fields for undergraduate and graduate students. Lecturer faculty are considered “master teachers” who occupy faculty lines at the College that are focused almost entirely on teaching (with some service requirements but with no research expectations). Lecturer track faculty teach 27 credit hours per year with no research requirements. Applicants for an appointment as lecturer in the Economics and Business Department should have a record of successful teaching or other experience relevant to the department’s needs, or strong evidence of the potential for successful teaching. Preference will be given to candidates with specialization or experience in Finance, Accounting, Data Analytics or related fields.

Lecturer faculty make a substantial contribution to the Department’s program at the College through participation in program assessment, curriculum design, and student mentoring. Lecturer faculty participate as full faculty members of the Economics and Business Department, the College, and the University. Service expectations will include serving on committees and contributing to projects and programs, particularly those related to teaching and learning. In their fifth year, lecturers are eligible for promotion to a Certificate of Continuous Employment, similar to tenure, based on teaching excellence and dedication to service.
