Job Summary:

The Department of Management at Eastern Washington University’s College of Business is currently inviting applications to fill one Lecturer rank faculty position to start Fall 2021 in support of the degrees offered in Human Resources and General Management.

Eastern is a regional, comprehensive institution where excellent teaching must be supplemented with an appropriate research program and activities that demonstrate currency in the field of teaching.

EWU is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty, staff, students and academic program offerings to strengthening sensitivity to diversity throughout the institution. We are an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer, and members of historically underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

About the College of Business
The College of Business is located in the Catalyst Building in Spokane’s downtown University District, and maintains an administrative presence in EWU’s primary campus in Cheney, Washington. Faculty offices may be located on either Eastern’s Spokane campus or on the Cheney campus, but all faculty are expected to teach at both locations.

The business program is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB-International).

About Eastern Washington University:

Eastern is a regional, comprehensive university located in Cheney, 20 minutes from downtown Spokane. In addition to our primary campus in Cheney, we also offer programs in Spokane’s innovative University-District, plus additional teaching/learning centers located in other cities throughout Washington State. Enrollment has reached over 12,000 students. The Cheney-Spokane area is the heart of the Inland Northwest, with excellent restaurants, theater, shopping, skiing, hiking, lakes, a choice of living in a medium-sized city or a small town, and high quality schools and housing.

EWU does not discriminate in its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, citizenship or immigration status, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, genetic information, age, marital status, families with children, protected veteran or military status, HIV or hepatitis C, status as a mother breastfeeding her child, or the presence of any sensory, mental, or physical disability or the use of a trained guide dog or service animal by a person with a disability, as provided for and to the extent required by state and federal laws.

Conditions of Employment:

Multiple work locations (main office located in the Catalyst Building in Spokane’s downtown University District or at EWU Cheney Campus with access to shared office space available at the non-primary work location).

The required start date for this position is 09/16/2021. To be considered eligible for appointment into the position, applicants must be available and able to start in the position no later than 09/16/2021.

This position, during the course of university employment will be involved in the receipt of, or accountability for, university funds or other items of value; as well as the unsupervised access with the developmentally disabled, vulnerable adults or children under the age of 16. The offer of employment is contingent upon successful completion and passing of a background check prior to beginning employment.

Note: Interviews will be conducted via Zoom (camera must be enabled). While we anticipate being open for in-person instruction for academic year 2021-22, should Washington State or university pandemic restrictions disallow for in-person instruction, then courses will be taught via online platforms, including Zoom and other technologies. Candidates must be able to demonstrate competence using these technologies.
