Job description

FinanceThe Department of Business Administration and Accounting at Hartwick College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor starting in August 2018, pending final administrative approval.  We seek candidates with expertise in Finance interested in teaching from among Financial Management, Financial Modelling, Investment Analysis, Financial Markets and Institutions, and other Finance courses to meet the needs of the department as well as general education courses, including First Year Seminars.  Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in Finance or a related field by the time of appointment.  Preference will be given to those with professional experience, especially in the area of financial management and investment analysis, active engagement with the discipline through conference presentation and publication, and proven success teaching in the traditional classroom especially if enhanced with other delivery formats, e.g. online/blended courses, simulations or community based learning experiences.  Our department embraces entrepreneurship and promotes active teaching and experiential community-based learning in a small undergraduate liberal arts setting, with the expectation that faculty maintain an active research agenda complimentary to their course interests.  Hartwick follows a calendar with 13-week Fall and Spring semesters and a four-week January term, the latter of which presents intriguing possibilities for innovative on and off-campus programs.  Teaching load will average 20 semester credit hours or their equivalent per academic year.  Committee service and academic advising also are expected for tenure and promotion.
