The Department of Economics and Business invites applications for a tenure-track Instructor or Assistant, Associate or Full professorship in finance/financial economics beginning Fall 2020.

 

The Lehman College campus is located in Bronx, New York and is a senior college within The City University of New York (CUNY) system. Lehman is CUNY's only senior college in the Bronx and is recognized as a Hispanic Serving Institution. The college serves mainly undergraduate students preparing them for employment, the professions and further study. The teaching load is 18 hours per year and although the college is predominantly teaching focused, faculty at Lehman are active in research, scholarship and creative works. Service to the college, university and community is part of the mission as is a clear commitment to student engagement including advisement. Teaching is reduced for junior faculty over the first five years for scholarly development and all faculty are actively encouraged to seek external funding. Opportunities are available for faculty development and travel awards. Lehman College and CUNY internal funding are available through competitive grants for scholarship support.

 

The successful candidate will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate level courses in finance, economics and related areas, engage in research/scholarship and professional organization, advise students, provide service to the department, college, university, and community, i.e. program coordination, committee, administrative, supervisory, and other assignments normally associated with a full-time tenure-track academic appointment. Evening teaching may be required. Weekend and online teaching will also be expected. With close to 1,500 majors and offering five undergraduate degrees and two MS degrees, Department of Economics and Business is one of the biggest departments at Lehman. Future plans for the department include a move to a school of business which will eventually seek AACSB accreditation.
