Samford University’s Brock School of Business invites individuals interested in serving in a Christian university environment to apply for an Instructor of Business faculty position within the Entrepreneurship, Management, and Marketing department. This full time, non tenure-track faculty position is a nine-month appointment that will begin in August 2022. 

Applicants for this position must exhibit strong teaching skills, provide effective service to the University, School and Community and be committed to maintaining professional connections with the business community, excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and a strong track record of relevant industry related work experience.  The normal teaching load for a non- tenure track faculty is 4 courses per semester.  Summer teaching and competitive technology and course development grants are also available. A commitment to academic excellence and the ability to work effectively and collegially with faculty, students and colleagues is expected. Qualified candidates will hold a Master’s degree in a business discipline or closely related field (to teach courses covered by the Department)  from an institutionally accredited University.  Successful candidates will also have a minimum of five years of work experience in management, marketing, entrepreneurship, business communications or general  business and the ability and motivation to develop meaningful mentorship relationships with students both inside and outside the classroom.

In the fall of 2015, Brock School of Business moved into a 75,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art building that provides excellent space for faculty to interact with students, colleagues and the regional business community. Brock School of Business is accredited by AACSB International, and hosts more than 900 students in its undergraduate, M.Acc. and M.B.A. programs.
