    Assistant or Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship Faculty Positions

    The Department of Management in the Trulaske College of Business at the University of Missouri (MU) invites applicants to apply for up to two faculty positions in Entrepreneurship. One of these is expected to be at the Assistant Professor level and the other may be at either the Assistant or Associate Professor level. The minimum requirement is evidence of a PhD in management, entrepreneurship, or a related area by the start date of August 17, 2020. Thus, ABD candidates within one year of completing their Ph.D. degrees will be considered. The successful candidates will demonstrate a high quality, active research stream in entrepreneurship, broadly defined. Collaborative work with faculty and doctoral students is expected.
    The Management Department consists of three research-oriented faculty groups: Strategy, Innovation & Entrepreneurship; People & Organizations (OB/HR); and Supply Chain Management, Information Systems & Analytics. We are building a revitalized department based on reimagining what business and business education should be to serve constituents into the future. An important aspect of the Department's growth is our Entrepreneurship initiatives, which include the newly formed Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, a Department-administered minor in Entrepreneurship, and a proposed M.S. in Entrepreneurship program. Faculty in the department have close ties to the Monsanto Life Sciences Incubator on campus, the Centennial Investors angel investment group based in Columbia, the Coulter Biomedical Accelerator, media new business model programs and entrepreneurial leadership programs in the School of Journalism, agribusiness entrepreneurship programs in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and an Entrepreneurial Boot Camp for Veterans with Disabilities. We desire candidates who are active scholars and want to help us grow our entrepreneurship offerings.
    Key skills sought include expertise in leading edge entrepreneurship research, proven college level teaching ability, and collegiality in service roles. We desire candidates who will help us achieve our goal to become a top-20 management department in research excellence and instructional program innovation with a focus on management of innovation, entrepreneurship and technology. Expertise in leading edge methods is desired, and collaborative work with faculty and doctoral students is expected.

    Trulaske College of Business consists of about 65 full-time faculty members who serve approximately 5,000 undergraduates, 285 master's students, and 35 doctoral students. The Department of Management currently consists of 11 tenured and tenure-track faculty members and 11 full-time teaching faculty who share a strong commitment to excellence in research and teaching. In addition to the six positions available this year, we expect significant new hiring throughout the Management Department over the next five years.

    MU is both a Carnegie Doctoral/Research University-Extensive and Association of American Universities institution. MU has embraced an Inclusive Excellence Framework, and is fully committed to achieving the goal of a diverse and inclusive academic community of faculty, staff and students. We seek individuals who are committed to this goal and our core campus values of respect, responsibility, discovery and excellence. Columbia, with a population of about 110,000, has consistently been rated as one of most livable communities in U.S.
