Job Description

SC Johnson College of Business
Cornell University
Lecturer in Management Communication
The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University invites applications from qualified individuals for a non-tenure-track faculty position in Management Communication at the lecturer level, beginning July 2019. The position is in the School of Hotel Administration.

Job Description: The primary responsibility is teaching “Business Writing for Hospitality Professionals,” a first-year, core course that emphasizes written communication in professional contexts and includes an introduction to presentational speaking in business. Lecturers teach five classes each academic year and hold regular, individual conferences 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.

While the successful candidate is to be appointed in the School of Hotel Administration, the individual will also have opportunities to teach across degree programs in the other two Schools that constitute the College, including the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, and the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management.

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 and interacting with hospitality-industry managers. The college supports such activities with professional development funds.

Academic Qualifications

Job Qualifications:
• Discipline-related master's degree or Ph.D., preferably from a professional communication or rhetoric program.
• Experience teaching in a four-year, accredited college or university, preferably teaching multi-section courses.
• Experience and skill in teaching writing 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.
