Cornell University 

The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business invites applicants for a full-time Sr. Lecturer or Professor of the Practice (non-tenure track) position for a three-year renewable term in our Accounting area. Each reappointment thereafter will have a five-year term. The position is intended for placement in the Johnson Graduate School of Management, with an intended start date of July 1, 2023, and will be based in Ithaca, NY. Renewal is contingent upon performance reviews, the ongoing need for the position, and the availability of funding. Rank for this non-tenure track position will depend upon the qualifications of the successful candidate. 

Responsibilities of the position include teaching five three-credit courses per year, including at least one large introductory class and up to three upper-level classes, with possibilities of teaching across all three schools within the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business. Ideal candidates will have extensive experience effectively teaching financial and managerial accounting at the undergraduate, MBA, and executive MBA levels, as demonstrated through course evaluations. Teaching assignments may change to meet the needs of the curriculum, as determined by College leadership. This is an academic-year (i.e., 9 month) appointment. Although the primary role for this position is teaching, the School expects faculty to participate in student and school events including student advising, school projects, etc. 

The ideal candidate will possess a PhD in accounting or closely related field. For those candidates holding an advanced terminal degree, preference will be given to candidates with professional experience in accounting and certification as a CPA, CMA, CIA, and/or equivalent. The successful applicant will also be expected to maintain current AACSB standards for a scholarly academic (SA) or scholarly practitioner (SP), depending on their qualifications. 

The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business (established on July 1, 2016) combines three Schools: the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management (Johnson), the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management (Dyson), and the Peter and Stephanie Nolan School of Hotel Administration (Nolan).
