Position: Full-time Definite Term Lecturer in Business and Entrepreneurship

Organization: University of Waterloo

Unit: Conrad School of Entrepreneurship and Business

The Conrad School of Entrepreneurship and Business (Conrad) at the University of Waterloo invites applications for a full-time Definite Term Lecturer position in Business and Entrepreneurship starting August 1, 2019.  The position will involve several important teaching tasks at both the graduate and undergraduate levels as well as significant service and leadership of community building activities. The position is expected to involve the facilitation and coaching of student consulting teams as part of a corporate commercialization practicum and the delivery of course content related to Certified Management Consulting designation eligibility.  Other courses may relate to topics like management consulting, sales, family business, negotiations and leadership. Candidates with a PhD in Entrepreneurship, Business or Entrepreneurship education, Innovation Management, Organizational Behaviour, Strategy, General Management or a related cognate discipline, along with relevant industry experience will be considered. Candidates with Masters degrees may be considered where their experience and skill profiles are deemed to merit such consideration. Formal training and experience in education and pedagogy is a significant asset.  A CMC designation would also be an asset. Demonstrated comfort in teaching students with a technical orientation is important, and those with successful entrepreneurial, consulting, or senior managerial work experience outside the academy will be viewed especially favourably.

We seek individuals who have demonstrated a passion for teaching and coaching students, as well as an entrepreneurial drive and strong organizational abilities.  This position will normally have a teaching load of six one-term courses per year and administrative and service duties as determined by the Director of the Conrad School.  Administrative and service duties are expected to principally involve coaching undergraduate student entrepreneurs, organizing and hosting related events to enhance the student experience and Conrad’s profile, and more generally participating in the facilitation of the student entrepreneurship community at UW.  Teaching tasks will be assigned in all three academic terms. Working on-site and being available to students most work days is expected. An entrepreneurial outlook and interest in active engagement with colleagues and students in the growth and life of Conrad are essential. We seek candidates who will further reinforce Conrad’s positive, supportive, proactive, can-do culture.

The salary range for this position at the rank of Lecturer is $85,000.00 to $130,000.00. Negotiations beyond this salary range will be considered for exceptionally qualified candidates.  Salary range and rank will be commensurate with experience and track record.

This appointment will be for a 3-year definite term.  Reappointment at the end of the term is possible. An eventual appointment as a continuing lecturer is possible after six years in definite term appointments.
