Seeking University Faculty Appointment in 2020-21

Endowed Scholar-on-Sabbatical


By David Edward Marcinko MBBS DPM MBA MEd CMP™ 

Any New Year typically brings to mind the passage of Father Time. And, it’s hard to believe I will be finishing up my current endowed R&D sabbatical after the Spring semester.

It means searching for a new faculty appointment to continue my passion for: [1] classroom teaching and junior faculty mentorship [2], university PR, outreach, promotion and grant-funding; and of course [3] more research, development, books and publications.

This competitive scholarship ethos is AKA the triad of success: “being a guide on the side – not a sage on the stage” AND “no margin – no mission” AND “publish or perish.

Employment and Subject Matter Expertise

Now, as a consummate team player, I’ve served as adjunct, to visiting, to full distinguished professor – and as department chair, to endowed chairman, online MOOC Dean and professor-of-the-practice.  Areas of specialization include: public and population health policy, management and administration; health economics, finance and insurance; and medical capitalism, innovation and free-enterprise at the graduate or doctoral levels.

And, as a former surgeon and clinician who also trained in Europe, and devotee of Nobel Laureate Ken Arrow PhD, I’m a global inter-disciplinarian within the health care industrial complex that may soon comprise 20% of domestic GDP.

Location – Location – Location

I’m pretty much private or public [mid-size] school agnostic, but prefer the Southeast, Northeast and Midwest in a livable city; with a 9-10 month faculty appointment.

But, I wouldn’t rule out a 12-month business school, or public health sciences type Dean position, as long as it is not totally administrative. A founding department chair, or inaugural deanship, would be near perfect; 24/7/365.

Crowd-Sourcing a Job?

So, I am crowd-sourcing this new job search as an emerging trend. Moreover, crowd-funding health insurance, and crowd-sourcing medical and diagnostic care is an emerging HIT trend. In fact, it’s the R&D equivalent of my current Health Dictionary Series™ WIKI project. It’s an experiment!

Regardless of the job search, check it out and tell me what you think!


Finally, please know that I am not looking for a mere job or to climb the ladder of academia. Rather, I am seeking a university home to continue my passionate career by paying it forward as servant-leader for the next generation of business and/or public health care executives.

More Info:

If you think I might be a good fit for your university, or would just like to brainstorm ideas; give me a holler: phone: 770-448-0769; or mail:; or arrange a virtual Skype interview to “chat”. Grab yourself a cup of coffee, because I am verbose.

Serious inquirers might also want to check me out, in far-too-much-detail, here!


Thank you for the opportunity

    Teaching Philosophy

    Although any learner-centered teaching philosophy, or Boyer Model of scholarship, is constantly in flux, the mission of any educator public or private, is: [1] to promote positive learning; [2] to motivate students, staff and graduates; [3]
    to provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning; and in modernity [4] to enhance career and life-work opportunities; [5] improve bottom-line financial metrics, and [6] to collaborate on a national and global basis.

    But, at this level of blended pedagogy, andragogy and heutagogy, the mission of any university president, college dean, or academic professor is to be a modern guide on the side; not bombastic sage on the stage.

    Moreover, academic leadership positions hold special gravitas in order to set the tone for future growth and involvement with the current and future enterprise wide didactic ecosystem of learners, sponsors, colleges, industry and institutions.
