School of Hotel Administration
Operations, Technology, and Information Management Area Group
The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business invites applicants for a full-time Lecturer for a three-year renewable term in our Operations, Technology and Information Management area, for placement in the School of Hotel Administration and with a specialization in Property Development and Management. The intended start date is July 1, 2020. The position will be based in Ithaca, NY.
Responsibilities of the position include teaching core courses in development and management of the physical asset, an integral part of the undergraduate and Master's curricula in hotel administration and hospitality management. There is also the potential to offer sections of existing electives or to develop new elective offerings in topics related to development, design, and/or physical asset management.
Lecturers teach five classes each academic year and hold regular office hours to support student learning. They also recruit, manage and develop a team of undergraduate teaching assistants. Being accessible to students is critical. Lecturers in this area teach multi-section courses ranging in size from 25 to 150 students and they collaborate extensively with faculty colleagues on curriculum development and academic area planning.
In addition to teaching responsibilities, lecturers have School and College service responsibilities and are expected to pursue professional development activities, such as presenting at discipline-related conferences and interacting with hospitality industry professionals to expand classroom expertise and develop highly relevant teaching materials for our students. The College supports such activities with professional development funds. Research is not a formal component of this role, but is encouraged insofar as it complements this position's teaching role.
The ideal candidate will possess at least a Masters degree in Hospitality Administration, Business Administration, Architecture, Engineering, Real Estate Development or related discipline. Rigorous, recent professional experience in the hospitality industry at the property and/or the corporate level is expected, and evidence of strong teaching skills at the college level will be required. Ideally the successful candidate would have demonstrated teaching ability within an institution of higher education where teaching effectiveness and student-faculty relations are highly valued.
