General Summary of Position:

The Management Department at the Robert J. Manning School of Business, University of Massachusetts Lowell, invites applications for a one-year Visiting Faculty in Management position for the 2022-23 academic year.

This visiting position is in the field of Organizational Behavior (OB), with a preferred ability to teach courses on groups/teams to undergraduate students, in-person and on-line.  This is a one-year contracted position that would be a good fit for a newly graduated PhD, an Assistant Professor without a full time position, a strong ABD candidate, or someone with significant and relevant professional experience.

The Management Department has two main areas: Organizational Behavior and Strategic Management. Current academic programs include undergraduate concentrations in Management, a graduate certificate in Management & Leadership, an MBA Managerial Leadership track and MBA International Business track, and a Ph.D. degree in Business Administration with a Leadership/Organization Studies concentration.

In addition to traditional face-to-face course offerings, UMass Lowell has a large and growing set of online courses and programs. Online teaching experience is highly desirable. The standard teaching load for this job is 3-4 courses per semester, depending on research activity.

Located 25 miles northwest of Boston, UMass Lowell has over 19,000 students and is one of the largest public universities in New England. The Manning School has over 4,000 undergraduate and graduate students and is accredited by the AACSB-International. 

Minimum Qualifications (Required):
