Lecturer in Marketing and Management Communication: SC Johnson College of Business, Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management
The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business invites applicants for a full-time lecturer position for a three-year renewable appointment in our Marketing and Management Communication area, intended for placement in the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, with an intended start date of July 1, 2021. The position will be based in Ithaca, NY. Renewal is contingent upon performance reviews, the ongoing need for the position, and the availability of funding.
The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business (established on July 1, 2016) combines three Schools: the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management (Johnson), the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management (Dyson), and the School of Hotel Administration (Hotel School). Dyson houses a top-ranked undergraduate business program as well as graduate programs that award Ph.D., M.S., and M.P.S. degrees. Areas of faculty research include management; environmental, energy and resource economics; food and agricultural economics; and international and development economics. Faculty members in the Dyson School frequently collaborate with colleagues in Computer and Information Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Natural Resources, and other units on campus.
Responsibilities of the position include teaching "Management Communication," the required core course. Lecturers teach five classes each academic year and hold regular office hours to discuss students' papers and presentations. Being accessible to students is critical. Lecturers teach multi-section courses and collaborate extensively on curriculum development, student assignments, School projects, and, at times, research projects. Dyson supports communication development throughout the curriculum, and other opportunities may include work with writing intensive courses and/or a capstone project, Grand Challenges. Teaching across schools within the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business may be possible, specifically in the SC Johnson Graduate School of Management and School of Hotel Administration.
In addition to teaching responsibilities, lecturers have school and college service responsibilities and are expected to pursue professional development activities, such as presenting at business-communication discipline conferences. The college supports such activities with professional development funds.
Discipline-related master's degree or Ph.D., preferably from a professional communication program and/or leadership experience in a complementary or related field.
Experience and skill in teaching in professional contexts and willingness to teach both written and oral communication.
Demonstrated experience and interest in collaborating with colleagues.
Direct engagement with the business communication discipline--through, for example, presenting at business, technical, or professional communication conferences--is an advantage, as is business knowledge and experience.
