Briar Cliff University of Iowa, an institution committed to higher education within a liberal arts and Catholic perspective, invites applications for a 9-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor of Business position beginning August, 2018. The successful candidate will be qualified to teach undergraduate courses in at least two of the following areas: management, production and operations management, leadership, strategic management, and/or global management. The ability to teach entry- and mid-level marketing or economics courses is a plus. A doctorate from an accredited institution is preferred, although ABDs very close to completion will be considered, as will those with postgraduate hours in the field with significant experience. Evidence of strong instructional effectiveness is essential, as are strong communications and interpersonal skills. Experience teaching online, business experience, and professional certification are desirable. Demonstrated commitment to diversity and experience with promoting inclusive excellence are required.
