The candidate should be able to effectively communicate with hospitality industry leaders and have a strong record of teaching courses at the undergraduate, masters, and executive levels. A research focus in hospitality is desired, but a focus on the service industry is required. Candidate must be willing to develop expert knowledge of services marketing in the hospitality industry.

Institution: The School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University is the top-ranked hospitality management program worldwide, with undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D. programs. The School of Hotel Administration (SHA) has approximately 800 undergraduates and 120 graduate students.

SHA is also housed within the SC Johnson College of Business, which includes School of Hotel Administration, the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, and the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management. The college is one of the most comprehensive business schools in the country with 214 faculty and nearly 2,900 undergraduate, professional, and graduate students. The combination of these schools into the Cornell College of Business allows Cornell to achieve the full potential of its business programs by integrating Cornell business faculty and students at all levels and coordinating programmatic collaborations that span Cornell's campuses. It helps advance Cornell's deeply rooted mission to apply knowledge for public purpose and to educate the next generation of leaders and creators to benefit society, solve some of the world's major challenges, and better serve the needs of New York State.
The holder of the Johnson Chair of Services Marketing would be part of a unified marketing group of 19 tenure track faculty members serving undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students. This individual would be expected to teach primarily in the programs of the School of Hotel Administration (SHA). Cornell's SHA is the global leader in hospitality and related services research and has access to high level industry data as well as top management across the globe. This is a wonderful opportunity for the right individual who is interested in applying their discipline-based research findings to the service industry.
Responsibilities: Job responsibilities include developing and teaching graduate and undergraduate courses designed to support services marketing. Top-level disciplinary research is valued, as is dissemination of cutting-edge ideas and practices to hospitality executives.
