Assistant Professor in Macroeconomics with publications
Do you have an opening for Assistant Professor of Macroeconomics that needs to be filled out? What about hiring a junior Assistant Professor who just published a single author paper in Macroeconomic Dynamics? It may be a good idea to hire a junior professor who already demonstrated research potential in published papers.
I have graduated from the University of Iowa (USA) and have 8 years of US style teaching experience (including 6 years in the USA). I have taught Principles of Macro- and Microeconomics and multiple Master level courses at Kyiv School of Economics.
A second field of my expertise is Applied Health Econometrics and have co-authored 9 papers listed on PubMed. My diverse specialization may be especially beneficial for small departments that can't afford hiring two Assistant Professors for two fields. Should you need references please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or request the most recent CV.
While working as a Head Teaching Assistant at the University of Iowa, I also acquired a considerable organizational experience in handling lecture hall courses for 600-700 students. In particular, I managed 10 Teaching Assistants, taught lectures, organized exams, grading, weekly TA meetings and so on.
My courses are well-organized with a course-webpage, printed lectures notes, homeworks, quizzes etc. I am happy to talk to students throughout the day and not just during the office hours. My teaching evaluations are systematically in excess of 4 out of 5.
