    About the Opportunity

    About the D'Amore-McKim School of Business:

    The D'Amore-McKim School of Business offers a unique model of business education that purposely blends innovative classroom learning with real-world business applications. Our students explore innovative theories with professors, fusing knowledge with learning experiences that include cooperative education or corporate residency, study abroad, and community service. Similarly, the School's resulting connections with the corporate world influence its research agendas, which, in turn, shape innovative new business practices. This synergy enables D'Amore-McKim students to become successful business leaders who are both thinkers and doers, and thus highly qualified to think critically and leave their mark on the global business world.


    The major responsibility of the chair holder is to develop initiatives that enhance the School's scholarly reputation in the fields of innovation, entrepreneurship, or global management through high impact research and related activities in areas such as industry dynamics and firm strategies in technology-driven contexts, innovation management and strategy, entrepreneurship, and global business. The Daniel J. McCarty Professor will help to continue increasing the visibility and prestige of the D'Amore-McKim School of Business E&I faculty. The successful candidate will also promote and enhance the research activities of the E&I Group and work within the University's entrepreneurial ecosystem to develop initiatives and programs that enhance both the School's and University's reputations among business executives, policy makers, and peers in prestigious research institutions.


    Candidates must hold a doctorate in Management or a related field by the appointment start date. They must be outstanding scholars with an international reputation for excellence in research, teaching, and service, along with clear indications of continued research success. We are especially interested in individuals who value collegiality, are effective mentors of junior colleagues, and whose research would complement and extend the interests of our existing faculty. Candidates must also possess a strong record of impact on practitioners, either from practitioner-oriented publications or the creation of novel programs for companies and institutions, and must have verifiable backgrounds in institution building and program development.

    Candidates must have a background in or commitment to working with diverse student populations and/or in culturally diverse work and educational environments.
