Job Description

In collaboration with Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management, the College of Professional Studies offers an online bachelor degree in business management for non-traditional students. We invite applications for a full-time Assistant/Associate Teaching Professor position. Qualified applicants will be capable of teaching broadly across business disciplines. Expectations of teaching faculty include online undergraduate instruction and course development in our signature Professional Competencies Core, and in our online majors in Business Management and Creative Leadership. Teaching faculty must also engage in activities that maintain scholarly academic (SA) faculty qualifications under AACSB guidelines.

SA teaching faculty deliver an engaging and effective learning experience, publish a minimum of two scholarly articles in peer-reviewed journals every five years, and engage in related curriculum, course development, and student mentoring activities to make both an instructional and curricular impact within and beyond the College. SA teaching faculty will also maintain an informal affiliation with the Whitman School of Management. Candidates must possess a PhD and experience teaching business management/administration courses. The College of Professional Studies values practitioner experience and favors candidates with demonstrated excellence in online instruction and course development. This is a 12-month position (a renewable 3-year contract), with some flexibility based on when courses are scheduled.

The College of Professional Studies is a rapidly expanding college of Syracuse University, which currently includes part-time, undergraduate professional studies programs across five academic areas. The College also offers a variety of noncredit courses, certificates, and executive education programming. More information about the College may be found here.

About the Syracuse area

Syracuse is a medium-sized city situated in the geographic center of New York State approximately 250 miles northwest of New York City. The metro-area population totals approximately 500,000. The area offers a low cost of living and provides many social, cultural, and recreational options, including parks, museums, festivals, professional regional theater, and premier shopping venues.

Syracuse University is an equal-opportunity, affirmative-action institution. The University prohibits discrimination and harassment based on race, color, creed, religion, sex, gender, national origin, citizenship, ethnicity, marital status, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable law to the extent prohibited by law. This nondiscrimination policy covers admissions, employment, and access to and treatment in University programs, services, and activities.

Commitment to Supporting and Hiring Veterans

Syracuse University has a long history of engaging veterans and the military-connected community through its educational programs, community outreach, and employment programs. After World War II, Syracuse University welcomed more than 10,000 returning veterans to our campus, and those veterans literally transformed Syracuse University into the national research institution it is today. The University's contemporary commitment to veterans builds on this historical legacy, and extends to both class-leading initiatives focused on making an SU degree accessible and affordable to the post-9/11 generation of veterans, and also programs designed to position Syracuse University as the employer of choice for military veterans, members of the Guard and Reserve, and military family members.

Commitment to a Diverse and Inclusive Campus Community

Syracuse University maintains an inclusive learning environment in which students, faculty, administrators, staff, curriculum, social activities, governance, and all other aspects of campus life reflect a diverse, multi-cultural, and international worldview. The University community recognizes and values the many similarities and differences among individuals and groups. At Syracuse, we are committed to preparing students to understand, live among, appreciate, and work in an inherently diverse country and world made up of people with different ethnic and racial backgrounds, military backgrounds, religious beliefs, socio-economic status, cultural traditions, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities. To do so, we commit ourselves to promoting a community that celebrates and models the principles of diversity and inclusivity.
