Management Earlham College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in the Business and Non-Profit program at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in Fall 2016.
The Business and Non-profit Management program at Earlham College is an interdisciplinary social science major in a liberal arts context. We are expanding our offerings in Social Entrepreneurship as well as other subjects relevant to for-profit and not-for-profit global organizations. Our diverse program draws students from around the globe with various backgrounds and interests. We are committed to providing students with foundational management theories and skills in a context that takes into account respect for persons, culture, and the environment. We offer a major and a minor, so faculty members have the opportunity to develop relationships with students from across the campus and various disciplines.
The successful candidate should hold a Ph.D. (or relevant terminal degree) in an appropriate social science field. Candidates will be considered if they will have their degree in hand within one year of appointment. They should be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching and ability to work collaboratively. Applicants should have the ability to develop courses in Social Entrepreneurship. We especially welcome candidates that can develop course content relevant to students who wish to develop or work with non-profits/NGOs in the future. However, we will also consider applicants able to teach in other areas that complement our program and dedication to international perspectives in and out of the classroom. As the program is growing, the successful candidate should be willing to develop innovative new courses and programs in collaboration with existing program faculty. Preference will be given to candidates with international business, entrepreneurial, and/or nonprofit experience, and ability to work with diverse populations. In addition to teaching responsibilities, appointments entail academic advising and program-related responsibilities.
Faculty also have numerous opportunities to lead off-campus programs, develop special short, intensive courses, and conduct research with small groups of students. Earlham College continues to build a community that reflects the gender and racial diversity of the society at large, and, therefore, we are particularly interested in inviting and encouraging applications from African Americans, other ethnic minorities, and women. Earlham also is eager to solicit applications from members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
