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.
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.
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.
The School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University is the top-ranked hospitality management program worldwide, with undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D. programs. The School of Hotel Administration (SHA) has approximately 800 undergraduates and 60 graduate students. Founded in 1922, SHA is an AACSB accredited business school, with a resident faculty of 65 and over 10,000 alumni worldwide.

SHA is housed within the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, which includes SHA, the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, and the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management. The college is one of the most comprehensive business schools in the country with 214 faculty and nearly 2,900 undergraduate, professional, and graduate students. The combination of these schools into the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business allows Cornell to achieve the full potential of its business programs by integrating Cornell business faculty and students at all levels and coordinating programmatic collaborations that span Cornell's campuses.
