The ILR School at Cornell University is seeking to fill a tenure-track faculty position in human resource studies. The department is looking for candidates who can support our growing diverse student body through advising and inclusive teaching approaches. This is a tenure track position at a rank fitting with the candidate’s record of accomplishments. Candidates should have a record of high-quality research published in top tier refereed outlets as well as the ability to teach effectively to both undergraduates and graduate students on the Cornell Ithaca campus. We will consider applicants at all ranks, but will give preference to junior scholars in the HR Studies Department.

The ILR School prizes excellence in both research and teaching.  Successful candidates will demonstrate both experience in teaching and a strong record of publishing in management or relevant disciplinary journals. We seek applicants whose record in research, teaching or service has prepared them to contribute to Cornell’s historical commitment to diversity.

We are a leading institution of applied social sciences focusing on work, employment, and labor policy issues in the U.S. and internationally.  The School offers undergraduate and graduate education as well as career-long learning for professionals, and is comprised of six departments (including Labor Relations, History and Law, International Comparative Labor, Economics and Statistics, in addition to OB and HR) that operate in a highly collaborative and collegial environment.  The Department of Human Resources is a part of a rich intellectual environment for management scholars at Cornell, with strong ties to the Sociology and Psychology Departments and the SC Johnson College of Business.  

Cornell University is committed to supporting the work-life balance of its faculty.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, vita, research statement, teaching statement, diversity and inclusion statement, writing sample, and names of three reference. Applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged. The submission deadline for application materials is October 1, 2021. This position has a planned start date of August 2022.
