The Markets, Innovation, and Design (MiDE) Department in the Freeman College of Management at Bucknell University invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure-track faculty position to begin August 2022. The initial appointment is for three years, with the possibility of reappointment in subsequent years contingent on satisfactory performance.
The successful candidate will be qualified to teach design-related courses, including the introductory course in MiDE (MIDE 300) that blends design thinking with concepts from marketing and innovation and an upper-level undergraduate course in design realization (MIDE 302) -- a studio-based course in which students gain hands-on experience transforming their ideas into models and prototypes. The teaching load is six courses per academic year. This position is open to candidates with an array of design-related backgrounds, including product development, user experience design, product/services design, etc. The successful candidate should possess a graduate degree in a relevant field. In addition, candidates will be expected to advise students and facilitate student experiential learning and maintain faculty qualifications consistent with the AACSB accreditation standards for clinical faculty. The successful candidate will demonstrate evidence of, or potential for, engaging in ongoing professional activities, such as consulting or participation on boards related to their professional background.
The MiDE Department and the Freeman College are devoted to diversity and inclusion. We strive to recruit faculty members, staff, and students from diverse backgrounds who bring myriad viewpoints to our community, thereby facilitating the cultivation of curiosity, open-mindedness, humility, enlightened perspectives, and other valuable traits critical for learning and growth. We welcome candidates who demonstrate excellence in reflective multicultural and inclusive teaching practices and who display a strong commitment to collaboration and interdisciplinarity.
The approximately 700 undergraduate students in the AACSB-accredited Freeman College of Management may choose among eight highly interdisciplinary majors that combine courses in the various fields of management with offerings in the arts, humanities, natural and social sciences, and engineering. Our innovative curriculum and world-class teacher-scholars earned Freeman College a top 20 ranking in the 2022 Poets & Quants’ annual survey of undergraduate business programs. We believe that an undergraduate education that combines technical skills and deep intellectual exploration is the best preparation for thoughtful and capable leaders. New faculty members must be capable of contributing to this mission through teaching, advising, scholarship, and service.
