Full Text of JOE Listing:

The School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University is seeking exceptional applicants for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level who can conduct research and teach at a high quality level in the fields of hospitality labor and employment relations, with a disciplinary expertise in labor economics and/or labor and/or employment law. We seek candidates who can be expected to publish in top-tier academic journals, and whose research interests can be applied to the hospitality industry and translated to a hospitality practitioner audience, which is broadly defined to include leaders in hotel corporations, restaurants, tourism, airlines, hospitality suppliers, social media companies and travel-related businesses. Our goal is to find the candidate who presents the best combination overall of practically relevant, rigorous research, with outstanding teaching/presentation skills.

Responsibilities: The School of Hotel Administration highly values and expects excellence in both teaching and research. The teaching load is three courses per academic year for faculty demonstrating strong research productivity. The successful candidate would, ideally, teach two sections of a required undergraduate course in microeconomics or law and develop an elective. The courses taught could be altered to fit the candidate’s discipline. The successful candidate would also conduct high quality research for publication in top discipline and industry journals, advise students, and perform other professional duties.

Professional qualifications: Candidates must have a either (1) a Ph.D. in labor economics, economics, industrial and labor relations, collective bargaining, or a related field; or (2) a J.D. with practical or academic experience in labor and/or employment law. Prior research, teaching, and/or business experience in the hospitality industry is desirable but not required. The School of Hotel Administration provides unique data sets and industry access that can facilitate the candidate’s future research and teaching about the industry.

Rank and salary: The tenure-track professorial position is a three-year, renewable appointment, which is anticipated to begin July 2015. Rank and salary will be determined based upon academic achievement and experience. Appointments are nine-month terms with attractive benefits. This position comes with excellent research support, professional funding and a salary highly competitive with top U.S. business schools.

Institution: Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration (SHA) is recognized worldwide as the premier institution of hospitality management, and its alumni dominate the top managerial echelons of a broadly-defined, multi-national hospitality industry. The Cornell University campus is located in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, one of the most scenic areas of the country, and the region offers a wide variety of both winter and summer activities.

Application: Please submit via email or hard copy a vita, three references, up to three academic research papers, and syllabi and teaching evaluations for recent courses taught. We anticipate interviewing candidates at the 2015 ASSA/AEA Annual Meeting. However, applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Please send applications to:
