Lewis G. Schaeneman Jr. Professorship of Innovation and Dynamic Management


The Cornell S.C. Johnson College of Business invites applications for a senior, tenure-track faculty member for the Lewis G. Schaeneman Jr. Professorship of Innovation and Dynamic Management in the School of Hotel Administration, with a start date of July 1, 2019.

Position Description:  Exceptional candidates are sought for a tenure-track position in strategy or organization theory at the Associate Professor or Full Professor level with an established reputation in strategic management or organization studies and enthusiasm to expand into services, and who can perform research and teach at a quality level that is consistent with the school’s pre-eminent status.  The ideal candidate can effectively interact with students and faculty and enrich the intellectual capital of the school through their research and teaching activities in the area of strategic management.  Research should have the potential to influence both academics and practitioners.  The successful candidate is expected to serve as a thought leader in the S.C. Johnson College of Business’s Management & Organizations area group.

Qualifications:  Ideal candidates will currently hold the rank of Associate or Full Professor and have a strong track record of scholarship and teaching in strategic management.  The candidate should have a strong publication record in the top management journals (e.g., Strategic Management Journal, Academy of Management Journal, Administrative Science Quarterly) and should meet the school’s current tenure standards of research excellence.  The candidate should be able to effectively communicate with hospitality industry leaders and have a strong record of teaching courses at the undergraduate, masters, and executive levels.  A research focus in hospitality is desired, but a focus on the service industry is required.  Candidate must be willing to develop expert knowledge in the hospitality industry.  A Ph.D. degree in the fields of strategy, management or other appropriate field from a recognized program is required.

Institution: 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.  Important resources available to faculty include extraordinary access to industry leaders, excellent research funding, the Center for Hospitality Research (CHR), and the cultural and intellectual resources of the Cornell University community.  SHA is housed within the SC Johnson College of Business, which includes School of Hotel Administration, 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.  It helps advance Cornell's deeply rooted mission to apply knowledge for public purpose and to educate the next generation of leaders and creators to benefit society, solve some of the world's major challenges, and better serve the needs of New York State.

Responsibilities:  Job responsibilities include developing and teaching graduate and undergraduate courses designed to support strategic management.  Top-level disciplinary research is valued, as is dissemination of cutting-edge ideas and practices to hospitality executives.


Application Deadline:  Consideration of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
