With the generous financial support of the former chairman of the Board of Trustees, the business department will be hiring a senior lecturer (non-tenure track) to fill the Stanley ’80 & Jolene (Hall) ’80 Sloter Endowed Chair in Entrepreneurship at Lycoming College with a start date of either spring 2022 or fall 2022.  This professor will promote the learning and understanding of entrepreneurship for business related majors, as well as for students across all majors at the college.  The Sloter Chair is expected to teach three courses per semester.  In addition to teaching “introduction to entrepreneurship” each semester, the Sloter Chair will teach advanced courses in entrepreneurship. By doing so, this person will support both advanced understanding of entrepreneurship to non-majors and the advanced course needs of business majors.  Thus, while entrepreneurship is not a major, business majors can take courses in entrepreneurship as part of their business training, and non-business majors can learn the basics of entrepreneurship to pair with their area of expertise.

The Sloter Chair will be housed in the Business Administration department and will advise and mentor students along with the rest of the department.  Additionally, the Sloter Chair will work to advance understanding and activity relating to entrepreneurism both in the department and across the college.  Finally, networking outside of the college will be an important component of the job in order to facilitate internship and service learning opportunities for students.  Once hired, the Sloter Chair will have the opportunity to further develop the entrepreneurship program at the college.  The Sloter Chair must have, at minimum, an M.B.A. and a track record of entrepreneurial experience. A Ph.D. in entrepreneurship is a plus.

To apply, interested applicants should submit the following: curriculum vitae or resume, materials illustrating teaching experience, 250-word statement on why they are interested in teaching entrepreneurship in a liberal arts academic environment, names and contact information for three references, and copy of graduate transcripts.

Review of applications will begin on September 6 and continue until the position is filled. A post offer pre-employment drug screening will occur.
