Visiting Assistant Professor
Department of Entrepreneurial Studies
Hobart and William Smith Colleges seeks a faculty colleague for our rapidly growing new minor in Entrepreneurial Studies. This is a three-year, non-tenure track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level beginning January 1, 2019. Responsibilities include teaching courses for the minor, advising students, developing curriculum, and supporting co-curricular programming. This faculty member will work closely with the minor steering committee and the current faculty of the minor.
Successful candidates should have a Ph.D. or terminal degree (ABDs will be considered) in an appropriate field related (broadly) to entrepreneurship and documented entrepreneurial experience, whether in the public, private, or non-profit arenas. We especially encourage newer Ph.D. graduates or soon-to-be graduates to apply.
Entrepreneurial Studies is designed to develop leaders for the 21st Century by leveraging the analytical and critical thinking skills of a liberal arts education. We provide our students with the conceptual understanding, skills, and ethical foundations necessary for social, global, or private sector leadership. Our program empowers students to be capable of creating new enterprises or to be powerful agents of change within existing organizations. Practical skills taught include technical writing, oral presentation, Microsoft Excel for accounting and statistical functions, networking, and teamwork.
Core courses in this interdisciplinary minor explore the foundations of entrepreneurial leadership, economic principles, and quantitative tools, and new venture creation. All core courses contain ethics components, and students are required to take an additional ethics course to complete the minor. These core courses are supplemented by electives, both within the program and in other departments. All students must complete a senior capstone (i.e., new venture creation) course that requires students to identify and tackle a real-life challenge in the social, economic, and global environment.
+ Teaching 5 classes per year, including the capstone course for the minor. Depending on the educational background of the successful candidate, one or more of the following courses will be expected: ENTR 101: Entrepreneurial Leadership, ENTR 120: Economic Principles for the Entrepreneur, ENTR 201: Quantitative Tools for the Entrepreneur, ENTR 220: Social Innovation for the Entrepreneur, and ENTR 400: Senior Capstone.
+ Helping develop curriculum for the minor, on topics such as social entrepreneurship/enterprise, social/environmental justice, legal concepts, business ethics, tech entrepreneurship, or organizational leadership.
+ Advising students within the minor regarding course selection and independent entrepreneurial projects.
+ Supporting and developing co-curricular programming (e.g., pitch competitions, hackathons, etc.) in coordination with the Centennial Center for Leadership.
Ideal candidates will have a true passion for entrepreneurship (not just for-profit) and a clear vision for the value of entrepreneurial studies within a liberal arts curriculum and be able to articulate that vision to students, faculty, parents, alumni, and community partners. These candidates will also display a real interest in interdisciplinary collaboration. In addition, preferred qualifications include:
+ Ph.D. in Education, Entrepreneurship, Economics, Finance, Sociology, Business, Management, Leadership, Community Development, Organizational Behavior, Organizational Development, Philosophy, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, Public Affairs, Public Management, or a related field;
+ Practical/professional leadership, entrepreneurship, and/or management experience (broadly defined);
+ Teaching experience with a record of strong teaching or evidence of teaching potential;
+ Excellent written and oral communications skills; and,
+ Commitment to the role and mission of a selective private liberal arts college.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, evidence of entrepreneurial leadership, and a list of three references. Applications should be submitted electronically using Interfolio, http://apply.interfolio.com/52530. Review of applications will begin on September 1st and will continue until the position is filled.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
