Job Details

Requirements

The university seeks applicants with vibrant Christian faith who are dedicated to integration of that faith with their field of study. 


Ideal candidates will hold a PhD or other terminal degree in management or a related business discipline. Candidates with a master’s degree or ABD in management or a related business discipline and five years of relevant business experience will also be considered. They are expected to demonstrate excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and/or master’s level and have an active stream of relevant research and publication.
 

Preference will be given to candidates with:

  • Expertise in entrepreneurship, and/or operations and supply chain management

  • Practical experience in business

  • Strong networks in the business community

  • A commitment to experiential learning

  • Teaching competence in a secondary field, including but not limited to organizational behavior, leadership, human resources, strategy, project management, negotiation, or marketing

 

The university will prioritize candidates with broad interdisciplinary interests, demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, ability to integrate questions of meaning, significance, and ethics into all course content, and deep commitment to engaging students beyond the classroom. 
 

Faculty Responsibilities

Faculty members typically teach 24 semester hours per academic year. Faculty are expected to grow in Reformed Christian commitment; to pursue an active scholarly agenda; to teach effectively; to advise students well; to serve the university, department, students, and the wider community; and to engage actively with professional associations and learned societies such as the Academy of Management, International Leadership Association, Society for Business Ethics, Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, Christian Business Faculty Association, and others.


Candidates will be asked to affirm their commitment to the educational mission of Calvin University as a Christian liberal arts university in the Reformed tradition, affiliated with the Christian Reformed Church. (See Educating for Shalom and Faculty Expectations.) Calvin University provides numerous faculty development opportunities to foster growth in these commitments. 

Faculty Resources
Calvin University stands at the forefront of Christian scholarship across disciplines. The University hosts a number of Centers and Institutes and provides other funding opportunities to support faculty teaching and research, including sabbaticals, grants, course releases, summer research stipends, travel funds, and student research opportunities. Additionally, the Calvin University School of Business is host to the Calvin Center for Innovation in Business (CCIB), which is funded by a generous endowment and supports scholarship, pedagogical development, and engagement with the business community via course releases and summer support.

 

About the Calvin University School of Business
In 2021, the CUSB received a generous $22.25 million gift to build a new facility, strengthen its faculty, increase enrollment, and become a premier School of Business informed and guided by a Reformed Christian perspective. The CUSB has more than 600 students enrolled across its eight undergraduate majors (Accounting, Business Analytics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Financial Planning, Human Resource Management, Marketing, and Operations & Supply Chain Management) and two graduate programs (Master of Accounting and Master of Business Administration). All majors and programs feature significant elements of experiential learning along with strong academic components. Our business graduates enjoy extremely high placement rates locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
 

CUSB faculty members have extensive industry and teaching experience, and most hold terminal degrees. Faculty value creativity and teamwork in helping students learn and gain hands-on experience with the business community.
