The School of Business at Portland State University seeks exceptional candidates for an Assistant or Associate tenure track position in strategic management beginning Fall 2020. The ideal candidate should have (1) an earned doctorate in business or related field with an emphasis in strategic management or related areas from a nationally-accredited institution (advanced ABD candidates will be considered but must have doctorate by August 15, 2020); (2) evidence or promise of a strong and innovative program of research in relevant areas of strategic management commensurate with career stage; (3) demonstration of recent teaching excellence in strategic management or related courses; and (4) a strong and continuing commitment to both research and teaching. Candidates should also have an interest in teaching in both traditional classroom as well as online modes, and at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Demonstrated research interest in secondary areas such as entrepreneurship, analytics, and social and environmental impact, consistent with the School’s initiatives and that complement our faculty’s research portfolio, will be viewed as a plus.
The School’s active involvement with the region’s industry partners and strong entrepreneurial community provides faculty ample research opportunities. We offer a stimulating, collegial environment that values a diversity of research approaches and topics, and supports research efforts through the provision of graduate assistantships, travel funds, summer support, and a teaching load conducive to effective scholarship. Our management faculty have published in flagship journals including the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Strategic Management Journal, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Journal of Business Venturing, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management, Organization Science, and Research Policy. The School is AACSB-accredited, has a strong commitment to both research and teaching, and serves over 3,400 students.
