Position Description:

This fulltime, tenure-track position is aimed at teaching and research in the emerging field of human resources management, encompassing those key competencies required for organizational effectiveness in the management of human resources and organizational development.

Additional teaching responsibilities of the position can include, as needed and as appropriate, courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in subjects relating to general organizational and management, and strategic management.

This role includes active engagement of students and service to the institution.

Employment would begin in 2023.

Candidate Qualifications:

To be selected, you must demonstrate the following minimum, essential qualifications:

  • PhD in Management from an AACSB accredited (or equivalent) institution.  Doctoral specialization should be in human resource management or a closely related field.   ABD candidates will be considered.
  • Experience in teaching effectively undergraduate and/or graduate courses that relate to your qualifications and experience.
  • Ability to sustain research activities that lead to academic publications consistent with AACSB scholarly academic standards.

  • Organizational leadership experience, especially in a for-profit or not-for profit context, in which you managed a human resource function, or managed structured programs for people development, organizational development, and/or organizational change.
  • Expertise and willingness, as needed, to teach upper-division undergraduate courses in various management and organization courses, particularly strategic management.

Job Responsibilities:

As a faculty member in the Department of Management and Entrepreneurship, you would use specialized expertise to teach management across a broad range of human resource management competencies. Your teaching responsibilities would include developing courses at undergraduate or masters-level, or a combination, engaging students through in-person, fully online, and hybrid delivery modes. You would also teach, as needed by the Department, general and specialized courses in management and organizations.

Faculty members who teach solely at undergraduate level maintain a course load of eight (8) courses per academic year by current university policy. However, faculty members who teach a combination of undergraduate and graduate levels teach six (6) courses per academic year. Opportunities for summer teaching and additional compensation may also arise.

You will be expected to engage in research and writing to produce two or more published academic articles within a rolling five-year period. Such articles must be published in a qualifying peer-reviewed academic journal on a subject related to management and/or higher education.

Your ongoing scholarship and service should also contribute to the advancement of scholarship and professionalism in your field.

As the Department continues to expand and develop consistent with the School of Business’s current strategic plan, human resource and organizational courses will evolve to encompass the larger range of HR competencies. You would play an active role in shaping the undergraduate and MBA program curriculum development as the Department expands and enriches its programs.

More specifically, such HR competencies would include, for example, strategic HR planning and implementation; workforce analysis; talent acquisition and development; performance management and appraisal; total rewards; organizational development and change management; HR analytics and management systems; inclusion and diversity; employment legal and ethical standards; management-labor relations; global HR management; and sustainability goals.
