VISITING FACULTY POSITIONS FOR ONE-YEAR DURATION:
DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS AND BUSINESS
The Economics and Business Department at Colorado College seeks to hire several visiting faculty positions for the academic year starting August 2013. We expect that candidates will have a PhD in economics or be close to completing that degree by the start of their employment contract.
Colorado College is a highly selective liberal arts college with an enrollment of 1,950 students. We take pride in our distinctive modular “Block Plan” calendar, with an academic year is divided into eight 3½ week blocks. During each block, students take and faculty teach one course at a time, with a maximum enrollment of 25 students per class. The college’s unique academic calendar supports experiential learning opportunities such as field trips and service learning, and lends itself to other innovative teaching and learning pedagogies.
The college is located in the heart of Colorado Springs, a beautiful, dynamic city located at the foot of Pikes Peak. Colorado Springs routinely appears on lists of “the best places to live,” and the city and its surrounding region offer excellent schools, a diversified economy, unparalleled recreational opportunities, and an outstanding climate.
Year-long visiting position
The successful candidate will teach several sections of Principles of Microeconomics, one section of International Trade (with Principles listed as a pre-requisite course), and an upper-level elective of their choice (in consultation with the department). Timing of all courses will be finalized in consultation with the department. The candidate will also be expected to supervise approximately six senior thesis projects over the course of the year.
Half-year visiting position
The successful candidate will teach two sections of Principles of Macroeconomics and one upper-level economics elective of their choice (in consultation with the department). Timing of all courses will be finalized in consultation with the department.
The successful candidate will teach one section of either Principles of Microeconomics and/or Principles of Macroeconomics in the spring semester of 2014, with exact timing to be negotiated with the department.
The college is committed to supporting or increasing the diversity of the college community. Candidates who can contribute to that goal are particularly encouraged to apply and to identify the ways in which they would bring diversity to our community. Colorado College welcomes members of all groups and reaffirms its commitment not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation in its educational programs, activities, and employment practices.

America's Best Cities
Healthy. That's the word we kept coming back to. And we don’t mean a fit or skinny population; we’re talking about a city’s cultural vibrancy, economic well-being, and overall quality of life. Presenting our picks for the 10 best cities in America.
How We Ranked Them
First, we started with the 100 most populated cities in America, using public data to rank them on factors like cost of living, unemployment, nightlife, commute time, and access to green spaces. Then we took the 28 candidates with the highest overall averages and put them through a second round of number crunching, comparing things like the percentage of the population with college degrees, income level in relation to home prices, and weather. The wild card? Our own multisport factor, which rated each of our finalists on a scale of 1 to 5 for quality and proximity to biking, running, paddling, hiking, and skiing. After adding it all up, we had our top ten.
10. Charlotte, North Carolina
9. Cincinnati, Ohio
8. Minneapolis, Minnesota
7. Portland, Oregon
6. Albuquerque, New Mexico
5. Boston, Massachusetts
4. Austin, Texas
3. Atlanta, Georgia
