Job Posting for a Subject Matter Expert in CI for graduate courses at a U.S. university:

Although I don't frequently do this, a job posting I came across a few days ago caught my attention and might be of high interest to our group. I am attaching it, not the least of which because it was so unusual to find someone looking for a graduate level instructor in CI ... the usual caveat applies, that this in no way implies either my implicit or explicit endorsement of either the advertising university or the position.

Established in 1899, South University is a private academic institution dedicated to providing educational opportunities for the intellectual, social and professional development of a diverse student population. South University offers personalized student attention and high-quality undergraduate and graduate programs in business, health professions, and pharmacy across its five campuses and online.

The Subject Matter Expert is responsible for the design and development of online course content in the graduate Competitive Intelligence area. The Subject Matter Expert works closely with a team of South University Academic Affairs personnel, instructional designers, media developers, education experts, and platform developers to create high-quality, outcomes-driven course content within time and resource budget requirements.

As an expert in the Competitive Intelligence topic domain, the Subject Matter Expert develops written deliverables including original course topical content, content for instruction-enhancing media, examples drawn from current professional practice, student assignments, rubrics to assess student assignments, and instructional guidance. In addition, the Subject Matter Expert reviews content developed by the team to ensure that prescribed quality and course objectives are obtained.


* A terminal degree (e.g., Ph.D. or DBA) in Business, Management, Marketing, or a closely related field, with a specific emphasis and coursework in Competitive Intelligence
* Graduate teaching experience in Competitive Intelligence preferred
* Published academic and/or professional research in Competitive Intelligence preferred
* Industry work experience preferred
* Knowledge of online pedagogy and instructional design preferred
* Ability to balance academic quality and integrity with business imperatives
* Ability to respond positively to creative and content dialog to create stronger, more targeted course content
* Exceptional attention to detail and the drive to meet any and all deadlines in the content development project plan
* Technologically independent (broadband Internet access highly recommended)
* Excellent oral and written communication skills
* Highly organized with strong attention to detail and process
* Strong interpersonal skills, with the ability to act effectively as a member of a virtual team and work collaboratively with academic as well as business personnel
* Position is virtually based and must reside within the United States


Interested candidates should send a cover letter (which summarizes interest in the position, educational qualifications, and professional qualifications) and resume (which must include a list of academic programs developed, courses taught and/or developed, and academic research published). Only those candidates who move forward in the process will be contacted and asked to participate in one or more telephone interviews and asked to supply transcripts of all collegiate coursework. Please put "Course SME for Competitive Intelligence" in the subject line of the submission e-mail.
