The Narendra Paul Loomba Department of Management of the Zicklin School of Business is seeking to fill an open position of Lecturer in Entrepreneurship. This is a non-tenure-track position; however, Lecturers are eligible for a certificate of continuous employment after five years of satisfactory continuous full-time service in the title of Lecturer. The successful candidate is expected to teach entrepreneurship courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The entrepreneurship group has recently revised its curriculum to help students develop an "entrepreneurial mindset," or the ability to see and the willingness to pursue opportunity where others cannot. Whether in the context of a new venture, a large established company, a non-profit organization, or a government agency, whether in the field of technology, finance, health, education, or the arts, we seek to help our students apply entrepreneurial thinking to conceive of and deliver new value in innovative ways to users, beneficiaries, customers, and society-at-large. Given this focus, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise, experience, and/or interest in teaching at the
intersection of creativity, innovation, design, and/or technology as they relate to entrepreneurial thinking and behavior (i.e., not just startup).
In addition to their teaching responsibilities, successful candidates will also be required to contribute to the strategic goals of the Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship in a capacity to be determined by the Academic Director. The Field Center's vision is to be a thought and action leader in entrepreneurship education, research, and outreach, with a global footprint for programs of measurable excellence. To that end, the Field Center offers an array of services, including curricular and co-curricular programs, professional advisement, and technology training, to its stakeholders.
