UT Dallas Faculty Jobs

The Naveen Jindal School of Management

Lecturers - Business Communication Program (pmz130708)

The Business Communication Program in the Naveen Jindal School of Management at The University of Texas at Dallas seeks well qualified Lecturers to teach Business Communication and/or Professional Development undergraduate courses in Spring or Summer 2014. A Master's degree in Communication, English, or Business Communication will typically be acceptable for teaching these courses but substantial professional experience in a business communication field may also qualify some applicants. A record of effective and engaging college teaching in an institution similar to UT Dallas is preferred.

Business Communication courses (BCOM 3311 and BCOM 4350) in the Jindal School of Management focus on helping students develop the writing, speaking, and interpersonal skills that will help them advance their career. The courses are either business writing-intensive or business speaking-intensive and applicants should clearly describe the educational background or professional experience they have in either or both of these subjects.

Professional Development courses (ACCT 3100, FIN 3100, MKT 3100, IMS 3100, BA 3100, MIS 3100, OPRE 3100) are taken by entering transfer students and designed to introduce them both to their chosen major and to the rigorous academic and professional development expectations of the Jindal School of Management. These courses are segregated by major and so applicants will be assessed on their ability to provide experience-based motivation and professional insight into one of the following fields: Marketing, Finance, Accounting, Global Business, Business Administration, Management Information Systems, and Supply Chain Management. The Professional Development courses have a strong business communication theme so applicants who want to teach them should also describe their professional experience/qualifications as writers, speakers, and business communicators. Ideal candidates will have extensive professional experience in their field, university teaching experience, and a commitment to developing students into young professionals.

Faculty will teach primarily at the main campus, although some courses may be taught at the Collin Higher Education Center in McKinney. Courses are offered between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. and may include lecture, laboratory, seminar, and distance education formats, among others.

Applicants are reviewed on a rolling basis as needed. Indication of gender and ethnicity for affirmative action statistical purposes is requested as part of the application. Official transcripts must be submitted to the Faculty Records Office prior to the first day of official employment for those applicants selected to teach at the University.

Please note that should you choose to apply for more than one position across departmental lines, you will need to submit a separate application for each position. Applications submitted for this position will be valid through August 2014, at which time all application materials will be archived and new positions will be posted for the new academic year.

Please submit a curriculum vitae or resume, letter of interest containing a description of educational background and teaching experience, unofficial transcript(s), and at least three letters of reference to the ONLINE APPLICATION FORM below.
