The Department of Economics at the University of California, San Diego invites applications for an Assistant Teaching Professor position in Economics (also termed Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment, LPSOE).

• Demonstrated ability or potential to serve in a leadership role in the educational program of the department of Economics and University as a whole.

We seek candidates committed to academic excellence and diversity, equity and inclusion within the faculty, staff, and student body. Successful candidates will show commitment to educating a broad and diverse group of students and in working to increase the participation and success of students.
