The ILR School at Cornell University is seeking candidates with expertise in topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) whose record in research, teaching or service has prepared them to contribute to Cornell's historical commitment to diversity. We have up to two open-rank tenure-track positions set to begin in Fall 2023. Successful candidates will join either the Department of Human Resource Studies and/or Department of Organizational Behavior, based on their particular research and teaching interests. Candidates should demonstrate an ability to publish in top management or relevant disciplinary journals as well as the ability to teach effectively to both undergraduates and graduate students on Cornell's main campus in Ithaca, New York.
The ILR School offers a particularly appealing home for DEI scholars:
We welcome applications at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels. We are particularly interested in scholars with expertise in topics including (but not limited to): diversity in groups and teams, social inequality, social identity, culture, stereotyping, bias, discrimination, organizational approaches to DEI, and more.
For those candidates unfamiliar with ILR, we are a leading institution of applied social sciences focusing on work, employment, and labor policy issues in the U.S. and internationally. The School offers undergraduate and graduate education as well as career-long learning for professionals. The Human Resource Studies and Organizational Behavior departments are part of a rich intellectual environment for management scholars at Cornell, with strong ties to SC Johnson College of Business (comprised of the Johnson Graduate School of Management, Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, and Nolan School of Hotel Administration) as well as the Sociology and Psychology Departments.
Cornell University is committed to supporting the work-life balance of its faculty.
All interested candidates should submit a cover letter, vita, research statement, teaching statement, diversity and inclusion statement, and writing sample. We ask candidates at the Assistant Professor level to submit three reference letters. For applications at the Associate and Full Professor levels, we ask that candidates submit the names of three references. Applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged.
