Full Text of JOE Listing:

The School of Hotel Administration (Hotel School) at the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business invites applications from qualified individuals for two full time tenure-track faculty positions in real estate, with a start date of July 1, 2019. Rank is commensurate with and reflective of the applicant's academic record, at either the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications. A Ph.D. in real estate, finance, economics, or another appropriate field from a recognized institution is required. Seasoned untenured professors will be considered.

Responsibilities of the positions include teaching required and elective courses in real estate at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Candidates will be expected to conduct high quality research and publish in top discipline journals in the fields of real estate, finance or economics. Given the Hotel School's focus, candidates will be expected to contribute to the understanding of real estate within the context of hospitality and to publish in hospitality discipline or industry outlets especially at the tenured ranks. Candidates are also expected to advise students, and to perform a variety of other professional service to the college.

The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business (established on July 1, 2016) combines three AACSB-accredited Schools: The Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management (Johnson), the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management (Dyson), and the School of Hotel Administration (Hotel School). Faculty have opportunities to teach across the three Schools' degree programs in order to develop an appealing teaching load.

The School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University, the top-ranked hospitality management program worldwide, enrolls approximately 900 undergraduates and 70 graduate students. Founded in 1922, SHA is home to over 60 full-time resident faculty and over 12,000 alumni worldwide.

The College's real estate faculty are all members of the Applied Economics and Policy Area, which consists of 48 faculty from across our three Schools, and offers opportunities for cross-school collaboration with a wider network of economists at Cornell University. But the successful candidate could also affiliate with one other of the College's six Areas (Accounting; Finance; Management & Organizations; Marketing & Management Communication; Operations, Technology & Information Management; Strategy & Business Economics), if appropriate to his or her expertise.

The intent of this process is to recruit hires for the School of Hotel Administration. The School that best fits the candidate's research, teaching and public engagement interests will ultimately serve as the tenure home.

Job Qualifications:
A Ph.D. in real estate, finance, economics, or another appropriate field from a recognized program is required. Senior candidates will have demonstrated a record of exceptional real estate research and outstanding experience teaching undergraduate, graduate and executive education courses. Junior candidates must demonstrate the potential for exceptionality. Candidates will complement and extend the strengths of the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business's faculty. Candidates with a propensity for, or a record of, industry engagement with real estate professionals will be preferred.
