    Responsibilities: The Department of Management and Entrepreneurship in the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business (LSB) invites applications for a tenure-track position (Assistant/Associate Professor) to teach Entrepreneurship/Strategy starting fall 2020. We seek candidates who are effective teachers, scholars, and mentors to teach a mix of entrepreneurship (2/3) and strategic management (1/3) courses in the LSB's undergraduate and master's programs. Successful applicants will also possess the ability and desire to teach in Elon's core curriculum. Our preference is for candidates with an earned doctorate in business administration (entrepreneurship and/or strategic management) from an AACSB-accredited university by the time of employment. We value individuals who have previous  experience either in an organization or as an entrepreneur. We also value prior experience as a faculty member teaching Entrepreneurship/Strategy courses.
