The McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia invites experienced applicants for a non-tenure-track position as a part-time Lecturer in Global Commerce. This part-time wage position will involve teaching one or two courses per year at the undergraduate level on a contemporary topic related to global business. No research responsibilities are associated with this position.
Required qualifications for the position include:
- An earned graduate degree (in a relevant field).
- Prior teaching experience at a collegiate level or evidence for potential success in this area, and ten or more years of professional experience.
- The candidates will have expertise in contemporary topics relevant to global business, including but not limited to global capital markets, international trade, emerging technologies, politics and law, cultural context, and/or geopolitics.
- Significant practical experience operating in a global business context; and
a commitment to student learning and demonstrated teaching acumen, preferably including courses related to the global business environment.
This Lecturer position will have the potential to teach in one of two new course types at the McIntire School. Both of these course types can be offered in either 1.5 credit (as few as 7-weeks) or 3-credit (as many as 15-weeks) formats:
- “Doing Business in…” Regional Courses: These courses (1.5 or 3 credits) focus on the regional or country-specific contexts in which businesses operate, cultural differences, and emerging modern issues in policy and regulation. The School’s intention is to be able to offer these DBiX courses on an ongoing basis in key regions around the world, to include: China, Asia, India, EU, Latin America, and Africa, for example.
- Global Challenges Courses: These new courses (1.5 or 3 credits) in the Global Commerce Track explore social, environmental and cultural topics related to global business with the potential to dramatically impact future generations. Examples of topics to be covered in these courses may include: sustainable energy, business solutions to water scarcity, leading in an AI-enabled world, geopolitics of cybersecurity, blockchain and global value exchange, or technology and social transformation, among other topics.
The primary duties of the position entail developing and teaching core and elective courses in the Global Commerce Track, as noted above, and mentoring students as they transition into their professional careers. Applicants should clearly articulate in their cover letter which type of course(s) and topic(s) they would be best positioned to teach.
