The Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics (ACE) at the University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) invites applications for an open rank, full-time academic year (9-month) teaching position in Financial Planning. The Illinois Financial Planning Program (FPP) is housed within UIUC's ACE department. FPP is a key engine of growth for UIUC's College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES). Over the past five years, FPP has nearly doubled in size, growing from a total of 81 majors in Fall 2017 to 157 in Fall 2022. In light of this growth, ACE seeks to hire new teaching faculty to support the program's continued success. We invite you to join us in building a world-class program and shaping the minds of the next generation of Financial Planners.
Candidates for this position should:
1. Be confident teaching various financial planning topics, preparing students for FINRA exams (Series 65 and SIE) and developing courses to prepare students for working with high-net-worth individuals.
2. Develop additional courses to further the mission of our program, department, and college.
3. Have a strong desire to contribute to a premier Financial Planning program, including participating in or leading educational opportunities for students. These may include UIUC's Financial Planning Day, attending regional and national financial planning conferences with students, developing relationships with current and future student employers, and other service work that promotes our students, program, department, college, and university.
