Position description

The UC Davis, Graduate School of Management invites applications for a Lecturer to teach Integrated Management Projects and/or Simulations. The foundation of these courses is a business consulting project with a focus on applying management practices or a business simulation with a focus on managing the total enterprise. Students are charged with leveraging concepts learned from both core and elective course offerings in an applied environment. Students will make strategic integrated decisions in an applied environment for organization performance. This is an experiential learning course that involves students working in small teams. The teams are focused on real problems – making strategic decisions while learning as a team and as individuals. The course is also designed to incorporate general practitioners to assist with exploring course concepts by discussing practical implications and applications.

The position is open for the Spring 2022 quarter and beyond. A course is a hybrid approach, requiring in-person course meetings as well as remote virtual sessions. The requirements of the course will either be during regular working hours or during evenings and weekends.

The lecturer is primarily responsible for:
• Administration of the projects and simulations to ensure student immersion.
• Supporting the student's teams in partnership with the instructional teams.
• Meeting regularly during all designated course meeting times, both face to face and virtually.
• Leverage network, (university, personal, professional, etc.), to identify practitioners, (guest lecturers), to explore concepts within the course.

Candidates should have experience within multiple business disciplines in finance, marketing, strategy, and operations. Candidates should understand an integrated focus of all functional business units that align with project management. We prefer to have someone that is familiar with MBA education.

Your application should describe your teaching interests and experience and include a resume/CV, evidence of teaching, diversity statement and contact information for three references. Positions are contingent on funding and pending administrative approval and salary is based on ability and experience. Applicants must have, at minimum, an MBA. A terminal degree is preferred. Potential candidates should submit their applications online; we will only be accepting applications online. Please note that throughout the review, you may be asked to submit teaching evaluations or give a sample lecture to demonstrate your ability to teach. Applications are accepted on a continuous basis for future temporary openings, so the position will remain open until filled. Only completed files will be reviewed.

This position has no closing date and, as such, will remain open until filled. However, the Committee expects that initial consideration of candidates' applications will be completed no later than the initial review date listed.
