Term Instructor/Assistant Professor of Business – Business and Society/Global Environment of Business

CORRECTION: Previously this position inadvertently listed the Ph.D. qualification as being required. The positing has been updated to reflect that a Ph.D. is in fact a preferred qualification.

The George Mason University School of Business seeks applicants for a Term Instructor/Assistant Professor of Business (nine-month, one-year renewable position) with a specialization in teaching multidisciplinary topics (i.e., “Business and Society” and “Global Environment of Business” courses) to begin August 2017. There may be a possibility for multiple hires from this posting. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason’s academic and culturally inclusive environment.

Responsibilities:

The position primarily involves teaching multidisciplinary foundation courses in the Business School. “Business and Society” is offered to both multilingual students who come to the university through the INTO Mason Pathways program and undergraduates who enter the university through traditional channels. Pathways students will take a companion language support class while taking this course, and this position requires substantial coordination and communication with the instructor of that companion course. These courses will develop students’ critical thinking and writing skills while analyzing the role of business in American society (“Business and Society”) and exploring the changing global landscape in which businesses operate (“Global Environment of Business”). The teaching load for this position will be 4:4 with service to the area, school and university.

Required Qualifications:

  • Master’s degree with a minimum of 18 hours of graduate work in business or a related field;
  • Strong intercultural communication and collaborative teaching skills, and experience teaching multilingual students in the U.S. or abroad; and
  • Good citizenship is important as is the ability to work well with colleagues.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Ph.D. is preferred.

The School of Business:

Dedicated to excellence in teaching and research, the School of Business educates future business leaders through world-class, innovative academic programs and strategic business partnerships. Ranked among the top 100 undergraduate business school programs and part-time M.B.A. programs by the U.S. News and World Report, the School of Business is accredited in both business and accounting by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. Faculty are deeply engaged in the regional, national and international business communities; and their academic expertise combined with real-world experience provides a bridge in the classroom from academic theory to business practice.
