The 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, 2021, pending final administrative approval. We seek candidates with expertise in Accounting & Finance, especially in the area of financial accounting, auditing, managerial accounting, financial management, and investment analysis. Minimum qualifications include either a Ph.D. in Accounting or a current CPA or CFA license coupled with a M.S. in Accounting or an MBA.

Our department embraces entrepreneurship and promotes experiential and community-based learning in a small undergraduate liberal arts setting. The successful candidate must be committed to excellence and innovation in undergraduate teaching, active engagement in scholarly or creative activities, and working closely with students in a small college environment. Committee service and academic advising also are expected for tenure and promotion.
