Adjunct Professor of Management and Organization

Marshall School of Business Faculty Los Angeles, California

The Management and Organization (MOR) Department the USC-Marshall School of Business seeks to hire part-time faculty members for academic year 2022-2023.

USC defines two categories of appointment for faculty working less than fulltime.  These are “adjunct” and “part-time.”  The difference in the categories is primarily based on the nature of a faculty member’s professional work outside of teaching at USC.

Definition of Adjunct Faculty

USC reserves the “Adjunct Faculty” appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time at USC, who are employed full-time in a primary profession or career elsewhere. Adjunct faculty typically teach only one course per year but, in exceptional cases, may teach one course per semester, if approved by the dean. For example, a full-time freelance artist, a lawyer employed full-time at a firm, a pharmacist employed full-time by a pharmacy, or a consultant/entrepreneur/CFO who teaches 1-2 classes a year for USC would be considered an adjunct faculty member.   A retired person who considers themselves fully retired, but teaches 1-2 classes a year for USC, could be considered Adjunct Faculty or Part-time Faculty. 

Definition of Part-time Faculty

USC reserves the “Part-time Faculty” appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time who are not employed full-time in a primary position or career elsewhere. For example, a therapist with a part-time private practice, a musician who books performances on what they consider to be a part-time basis, a biologist who has a part-time job in a lab, or someone retired from a career who teaches less than full-time at USC could be considered “Part-time Faculty.”  Part-time Faculty under this definition may teach a maximum of 3 courses per semester, and we hope to limit that to 2 courses per semester as full-time faculty numbers increase.

The MOR department is interdisciplinary; our 21 tenured/tenure-track faculty members have backgrounds in organizational behavior, psychology, sociology, economics and general management. Our faculty teaches courses at the undergraduate, MBA, Ph.D. and executive levels. Please visit http://www.marshall.usc.edu/MOR for more information.

Part-time faculty may be asked to teach courses in either Organizational Behavior or Strategic Management, so candidates should indicate previous teaching experience in those areas and also describe other areas of expertise. The usual part-time faculty course load is one to two courses per semester. Instructors may be required to teach at any time between 8:00 a.m. and 9:30 p.m.

Interested candidates should submit an application packet on-line including a cover letter and current vita uploaded as one document.

Minimum qualifications: doctoral degree or foreign equivalent in an appropriate area of study; no teaching is specifically required, although consideration may be given to candidates with experience teaching at the college/university level.
