Position Summary

The School of Management at the University at Buffalo, the State University of New York (SUNY), is seeking candidates for two full-time, Clinical Assistant Professors. These are non-tenure track positions, beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year. The successful candidates are expected to refine and teach a course in business-focused communication (Communicative Literacy 2), a central component of the new UB Curriculum for General Education. The aim of this course is to prepare undergraduate students to successfully communicate in written and verbal forms, and across a range of genres and media, to peer, professional, and public audiences in the field; to make effective disciplinary and professional arguments; and, to produce communications individually and as part of a team. The instructors will work closely with school and department leadership in course development, improvement, and accreditation-related assessment, and will contribute to the intellectual life of the department, school, and university.

The UB Curriculum is a university-wide program of study built around intellectual discovery and integrative learning. It emphasizes critical thinking, ethical reasoning, global learning, and strong communication skills, providing the tools undergraduate students need to succeed in their professional life and to meet the responsibilities of citizenship in a diverse and interconnected world.

The profile and stature of the UB School of Management is on the rise in reputational rankings. The school has been ranked by the Financial Times, Forbes, U.S. News & World Report and The Wall Street Journal for the quality of its programs and the return on investment it provides its graduates. It enrolls about 3,000 undergraduates and 925 graduate students, and employs 82 full-time faculty. It currently has 84,000 alumni located in 84 countries. All academic programs of the UB School of Management are accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. This prestigious accreditation is considered to be the hallmark of management education.

Buffalo has received top rankings in multiple categories as a place to live (e.g. http://www.forbes.com/sites/erincarlyle/2014/03/11/americas-most-affordable-cities/). Located on Lake Erie, less than 25 miles from Niagara Falls and a short distance from Toronto, Buffalo is a city featuring world-class art galleries and museums (American Style ranked Buffalo as the #1 arts destination for all mid-size cities), impressive architecture and many beautiful parks and outdoor recreation areas. These features, its affordability, and its economic and cultural revitalization, make the region an inviting place to call home. The UB School of Management is located on the UB North Campus in suburban Amherst, an area that combines outstanding public schools and services with a surprisingly low cost of living. Downtown Buffalo is 15 minutes away by car.
