Principal Duties: The College of Liberal Arts at Purdue University invites applications for multiple tenure-track assistant professorships with scholarship in areas pertinent to the history, foundations, institutions, and functioning of the business sector and market economies. The successful candidate will have an active research agenda and an interest in developing and teaching undergraduate and graduate courses that connect with the interdisciplinary field of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE).

The Certificate will play a central role in transforming the Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. School of Business in accordance with Daniels’ vision that it “be marked by graduates who embody the values of wisdom and creativity, grounded in a firm grasp of today’s technologies and their likely evolution and awareness of the history of progress that freedom of enterprise has created.”
