Northland College is currently accepting applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor rank with a joint appointment in the sustainable community development (SCD) and business programs at Northland College. This is an endowed position supported by the Chapple family with an anticipated start date of August 2022.
Applicants with an affinity for Northland’s commitment to environmental and social justice and the College’s ongoing charge to confront and address problems related to global climate change are especially encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who can provide evidence of both quality teaching and a robust research agenda, and who place a value on liberal arts education. We are committed to creating a diverse environment as an equal opportunity employer.
The Chapple Chair of Sustainable Rural Economic Development will be expected to offer courses in the areas of sustainable community development and business and to engage in an applied research agenda focused on community economic development within a rural context. Ideal candidates will have a current or future research interest in the Chequamegon Bay region of northern Wisconsin or the Lake Superior watershed in general. Applicants who have expertise in rural economic development, heterodox economics, regenerative economies, cooperative businesses, community economic development, or sustainable development in indigenous communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
Responsibilities and Qualifications
The successful applicant will typically teach seven courses a year on a 3-3-1 schedule with the final course offered during the College’s one-month May term. Two courses a year will be sections of Essentials of Economics. Additional course offerings may include Introduction to Local Economies, Rethinking Economic Development, Regenerative Economies, and Workforce Development, but the successful applicant will be encouraged to develop a teaching agenda within their expertise to diversify the course offerings within the SCD and business administration majors.
Responsibilities also include serving on faculty and campus committees, scholarly activities, and mentoring undergraduates as an academic advisor and research advisor.
Completed PhD by August 2022 in economics, economic/community development, city and regional planning, sustainability, business, or another relevant field is preferred; ABD candidates considered.

Interested applicants must complete an online application, which requires (1) cover letter; (2) curriculum vitae; (3) statement of teaching philosophy, description of previous teaching experience, and evidence of prior teaching effectiveness (e.g. syllabi, course evaluations, peer observations); and (4) contact information for three professional references.
