POSITION: Lecturer of Management and Organizations-Diversity and Inclusion Programming (9- month appointment, non-tenure track).
The Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University seeks a Lecturer, 3-year appointment with possibility of renewal. Renewal is contingent upon performance reviews and availability of funding.
ANTICIPATED START DATE: July 1, 2017
RESPONSIBILITIES: The Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management is committed to providing a climate that values and appreciates the range of attributes (race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status and country of origin) of our faculty, students and staff. We aim to empower, enrich, and educate the Dyson community on the tangible benefits of inclusion and diversity. Outstanding applicants are sought in the general areas of management and organizations with special emphasis on diversity and inclusion programming. The incumbent in this position will be expected to teach three undergraduate courses (50% teaching) and take a leadership position (50% administrative) for the Dyson Business Inclusion and Diversity Program. Dyson is one of three schools that make up the Cornell S. C. Johnson College of Business.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach at least three sections of undergraduate management type courses per academic year and may work with students at the graduate level. There is some flexibility about specific course titles, which could include courses such as: Introductory Management, Organizational Behavior, Business Inclusion and Diversity Skills or Human Resource Management. It is also expected that the incumbent be actively engaged with students as a teacher, adviser and mentor. In coordination with the Chief Diversity Officer of the Cornell S. C. Johnson College of Business, the candidate shall take a leadership role in maintaining and strengthening the Dyson School's instructional capacities in diversity and inclusion, as well as developing programs that enhance the academic experience for diverse students. This could include expanding the Certificate in Intercultural and International Management program in collaboration with faculty and diversity program leaders in all three schools. The precise allocation of the appointment to management teaching versus administering the Business Inclusion and Diversity program will be partly determined according to candidate interests.
