The Department of Communication and Marketing within the Universitys School of Business is seeking qualified candidates for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position to teach marketing courses at Centers in Newport News and Chesapeake, Virginia, as well as online. In addition, the new faculty member will assist with academic projects, advising students, and engaging in curriculum development. The successful candidate must display excellence in the classroom (on-ground and online), have experience teaching traditional and non-traditional age students, and demonstrate the ability to use discipline-related computer software.
