Carthage College seeks a dedicated and experienced Management or Marketing professor to join the faculty as a full-time Assistant Professor (non-tenure track) starting in August 2023. We seek a professional with both industry and academic experience to contribute to a newly launched School of Business & Economics. Applicants must at least have a related Master’s degree, although a terminal degree is preferred.

Both Management and Marketing are two of the largest majors at Carthage College. Given the current flexibility and academic program growth within the School of Business & Economics, the ideal candidate will support the currently offered major (Management or Marketing), but also brings forth a level of expertise that assists the School in developing and/or supporting the following such areas: Business Design & Innovation, Supply Chain, Digital Marketing, and/or Human Resource Management.

Given the institutional design and history, we seek a faculty member who prioritizes success in the classroom as well as advising, but also understands and appreciates a small, liberal arts college by actively engaging with the institutional community through service and contributes to academic scholarship. Our full-time faculty teach a 24-28 credit course load (predominantly all classes are 4 credits) with an expectation to teach a J-Term course (January travel or seated) every couple of years.

Carthage College looks to build on its mission of “Seeking Truth, Building Strength, Inspiring Service - Together” by attracting faculty who appreciate working at a small, liberal arts institution with a distinctive and successful path. We pride ourselves in our efforts to attract diverse faculty with consistent efforts towards improving diversity, equity and inclusion. In addition, our institutional highlights include participation in the Moonshot for Equity, home to NASA’s Wisconsin Space Grant and a newly established engineering program.
