The successful candidate will be expected to participate in course, curriculum, and program development, advise students and provide career guidance, participate in campus, university, and community service activities as well as to engage in activities to stay current in the discipline.

Qualifications: Ph.D. in business or a related field from an accredited institution is preferred; minimum qualification of an M.S. or M.B.A in business or related field or a J.D. from an accredited institution. Commitment to high-quality instruction in a student-centered environment is expected. Interest in active and collaborative learning, the instructional use of technology, and hybrid and online teaching is an advantage. Prior college-level and online teaching experience preferred, as is industry experience. Enthusiasm for working in a multidisciplinary environment is important.

Campus Information: Penn State is a multi-campus public land-grant university that improves the lives of the people of Pennsylvania, the nation, and the world. Our instructional mission includes undergraduate, graduate, and continuing and distance education informed by scholarship and research. Our research, scholarship, and creative activities promote human and economic development through the expansion of knowledge and its applications in the natural and applied sciences, social sciences, arts, humanities, and the professions.

Penn State Wilkes-Barre is one of more than 20 Penn State campuses state-wide. It is a student-centered campus of approximately 600 students; about 20% are adult learners. The coursework for the first two years of more than 160 Penn State baccalaureate majors is offered, as well as eight baccalaureate degrees (Administration of Justice, Business, Rehabilitation & Human Services, Corporate Communication, Electrical Engineering Technology, English, Information Science & Technology, and Surveying Engineering) and four associate degrees (Business administration, Information Science and Technology, Letters, Arts and Sciences, and Surveying Engineering Technology).

Students and faculty at Penn State Wilkes-Barre have all of the resources of a major research university at their disposal, but in a small college atmosphere. Class sizes are small and the student/faculty ratio is low, so students can receive much individual attention.

Our students receive a world-class education delivered in a small campus setting.
