The Management Department at Niagara University invites applications for a full time, tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor rank, beginning in January 2020, subject to budget approval.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in Management with a background/specialty in Organizational Behavior, Human Resources or Information Systems, or an equivalent degree. Preference will be given to those with the ability to teach in two or more of these areas. As the teaching load is anticipated to include a portion online, a proven ability to teach in that format is strongly preferred. Candidates should demonstrate success or the potential for excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service. Niagara University has a main campus in Lewiston, NY, U.S.A. and a site in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. The successful candidate will be required to certify that he or she is authorized to work in Canada and will be required to provide timely documentation of identity and employment eligibility. Salary and benefits are AACSB competitive (3/3 teaching load and travel/faculty development support).
As a tenure-track faculty member, the hired candidate will be required to teach three courses in each of the fall and spring semesters, publish impactful scholarly research and participate in service (committees, advisement, etc.) to the department, college and university. Attendance at periodic meetings and holding regular office hours will also be expected. The courses assigned will be primarily at the graduate-level, and primarily in the above areas – though, they may include other areas as department needs dictate – as well as a mix of traditional (face-to-face) and online formats. Primary responsibilities for this position will be in Canada.
Home to 650 undergraduate and 250 graduate business students, the College of Business Administration has long-standing AACSB accreditation. Its MBA program was recently named in the Top Tier in North America and global best 150 by CEO magazine. This combination of outstanding quality and small size fosters close student-faculty relationships permeating all aspects of instruction, research, and service.
Niagara University was founded in 1856 by the Catholic Vincentian Fathers, whose mission emphasizes practical training and excellence in service of society. NU’s traditional stone buildings and leafy green campus sit on Monteagle Ridge, overlooking the Niagara River Gorge just three miles north of the majestic Niagara Falls. Immediately adjacent to Canada, NU’s bi-national culture is built on its close proximity to major manufacturing and business centers in Buffalo and Toronto, attracting from both countries’ significant populations of students and faculty.
Since September, Niagara University has been recognized for its strong record of preparing graduates for real-world success by U.S. News & World Report, The Princeton Review, Money magazine, College Choice, and Colleges of Distinction.
