Tenure Track at Marymount University!
I just accepted a full-time tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor of Economics at Marymount University here in Arlington, VA. Got my office this past week and classes start on Tuesday. As part of my responsibilities, I will be director of Marymount's Economics in Society undergraduate program. It seems a perfect match on many levels.
The position is heavily oriented toward teaching. To make this position even sweeter, the university is a 10-minute walk from home. The Economics in Society program also seems a perfect match to my academic training and research interests in economics of religion, law and economics, and public choice.
This first semester, I will also continue to adjunct at Catholic University -- teaching two courses at Marymount (Principles of Macroeconomics and Business and Economics of Sports) and two courses at Catholic (Principles of Microeconomics and Quantitative Methods for Decision Making). I expect it to be a busy and wonderful semester.
Getting this position at Marymount in many ways a dream come true for me. This is exactly the type of job I was hoping for when I entered GMU's PhD program in the exact location I hoped to stay in. I am deeply grateful and profoundly elated.
