Williams is hiring in economics and statistics. As an aid to future historians, I have saved copies of both job postings below the break. Both include this phrase:

Beyond meeting fully its legal obligations for non-discrimination, Williams College is committed to building a diverse and inclusive community where members from all backgrounds can live, learn, and thrive.

Back in the day, there was much more “inclusive” language about wanting applications from under-represented minorities. When/why did that change?

The Williams College Economics Department is seeking to make a tenure-track appointment beginning fall of 2011, and we invite applications. We are particularly interested in talented researchers and teachers in the specific sub-fields mentioned above, but we will actively consider highly qualified candidates in all fields. Scholars whose research focuses on East Asia are particularly encouraged to apply. Candidates should have a Ph.D. completed, or expect to complete their Ph.D., by September 2011. We welcome applications from those seeking positions at the advanced assistant professor level. Senior appointments will be considered in exceptional circumstances. Williams College is a highly selective institution, ranked as the top liberal arts college by US News and World Report. We are a department of active scholars (http://econ.williams.edu/) and currently have 25 tenured or tenure-track faculty members. In addition to our undergraduate program we operate and staff the Center for Development Economics (http://cde.williams.edu/) offering an MA in Policy Economics. Applicants should send curriculum vitae, professional papers, teaching evaluations and ensure that three letters of reference are submitted on their behalf.

Deadline for application and supporting materials: November 30, 2010. Electronic submissions will not be accepted.

The Williams College Department of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for one tenure-track position in statistics, beginning fall 2011, at the rank of assistant professor (in an exceptional case, a more advanced appointment may be considered).
