Faculty Position in Agribusiness

Illinois College invites applications for a full-time position in Agribusiness to begin Spring 2020.  Candidates should be able to teach a variety of courses in both face-to-face format and online.  Likely teaching load will include: Emerging Issues in Ag & Natural Resources; Introduction to Agribusiness; Agricultural Marketing; Farm Management; and Agribusiness Management
Capstone. Strong preference for ability to contribute to the Business program more generally, for instance, through teaching courses in accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, or sports management. Additional duties will include student recruitment and contribution to the ongoing development of the agribusiness program. We seek a candidate who values the liberal arts and is able to demonstrate excellence in teaching and scholarship.

Teaching load is three four-credit courses per semester. Faculty work closely with students both in and outside the classroom and serve the college in a variety of other ways. Professional agribusiness experience and quality teaching experience are strongly preferred. A completed Doctorate is strongly preferred, but highly qualified master’s-prepared or ABD candidates will be considered.

Since 1829, Illinois College has transformed the lives of undergraduate students. Founded by abolitionists, IC was the first college in Illinois to graduate students and hosts a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. The College is focused on student success and provides many opportunities for faculty-student interaction beyond the classroom, including collaborative research projects, international study-travel, and mentoring/advising. The College is committed to ensuring access and equity.

Illinois College seeks candidates who have a commitment to working closely with a wide range of students. Currently our population is approximately one-quarter students of color and 40% first-generation college students. Eagerness and ability to work with these populations is essential. Equally important is excellence in pedagogy and an openness to new teaching approaches.

The College is located in historic Jacksonville, Illinois, 30 miles west of the capital city of Springfield and 70 miles north of St. Louis, Missouri.
