This tenure-track faculty position is a nine-month appointment that will begin in August 2021 at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.

    Applicants for this position must exhibit strong teaching skills, be supportive of the University's mission, and be committed to maintaining an ongoing research effort.  The normal teaching load for faculty is 3 courses per semester, and research is required, although research expectations are reasonable and commensurate with the teaching load.

A commitment to academic excellence and the ability to work effectively and collegially with faculty, students and colleagues is expected. Qualified candidates will hold an earned doctorate in Management or closely related field. Successful candidates will demonstrate excellence in teaching and evidence of research productivity.
