Cornell’s ILR School invites applicants for two tenure-track faculty positions, one for a person with expertise in macro-OB/organization theory, and the other for a person with expertise in human resource studies. The departments are looking for candidates who can support our growing diverse student body through advising and inclusive teaching approaches. These are tenure track positions at a rank fitting with the candidates’ record of accomplishments. Candidates should have a record of high-quality research published in top tier refereed outlets as well as the ability to teach effectively to both undergraduates and graduate students on the Cornell Ithaca campus. We will consider applicants at all ranks for each position, but will give preference to senior scholars (associate or full) for the macro-OB position in the Department of Organizational Behavior, while junior scholars will be given preference for the HR position in the HR Studies Department.

The ILR School prizes excellence in both research and teaching. Successful candidates at the senior level position will demonstrate both experience in teaching and a strong record of publishing in management or relevant disciplinary journals, and those at the junior level will be expected to demonstrate some teaching experience as well as high research potential through publications, awards and other forms of scholarship recognition. Junior-level applicants must have completed their Ph.D. prior to the start of their appointment. We seek applicants whose record in research, teaching or service has prepared them to contribute to Cornell’s historical commitment to diversity.

We are a leading institution of applied social sciences focusing on work, employment, and labor policy issues in the U.S. and internationally. The School offers undergraduate and graduate education as well as career-long learning for professionals, and is comprised of six departments (including Labor Relations, History and Law, International Comparative Labor, Economics and Statistics, in addition to OB and HR) that operate in a highly collaborative and collegial environment. The Departments of Organizational Behavior and Human Resources are part of a rich intellectual environment for management scholars at Cornell, with strong ties to the Sociology and Psychology Departments and the SC Johnson College of Business.
