Title:  Visiting Assistant professor of Finance

Date Needed:  September 2014

Description: The Department of Business Administration and Accounting at Hartwick College invites applications for a full-time, one-year, term appointment at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor starting in September 2014. We seek candidates with expertise in Finance with preference given to those with significant business and/or undergraduate teaching experience. A doctorate in an appropriate discipline is preferred, but minimum qualifications allow consideration of candidates who are either ABD or who have a related Masters degree by the time of the appointment (AACSB preferred). The Chartered Financial Analyst designation would be very appropriate.

Specific teaching assignments will include (1) the required Business Administration majors' core course in corporate finance; (2) more advanced financial management courses for our Accounting majors and Finance minors; and (3) electives in investments, financial institutions, and other topics based on the successful candidate's background and interests. The successful candidate may also have the opportunity to teach various accounting and/or business courses. Teaching load will average 20 semester credit hours or their equivalent per academic year, and all faculty members teach during the College's distinctive four-week January Term. The successful candidate must be committed to excellence and innovation in undergraduate teaching, active engagement in scholarly activities, and working closely with students in a small college environment. Academic advising and some committee service also are expected with this appointment.

An independent, residential liberal arts college enrolling approximately 1500 full-time undergraduates, Hartwick embraces the teacher-scholar model, with teaching excellence as the first priority. Located in the scenic Susquehanna River valley in Oneonta, NY, near the northern foothills of the Catskill Mountains, the College features a Liberal Arts in Practice general education curriculum and aspires to "be the best at melding liberal arts education with experiential learning." The Department serves Hartwick's largest number of majors and consists of a small, dedicated team of professors delivering innovative courses in a modern state-of-the-art academic building designed specifically for our programs.
