We especially welcome connections to strategic emphasis areas at Questrom including health, digital business and analytics, social impact, risk management, and innovation and entrepreneurship. Candidates with particularly strong scholarly records in functional business areas (accounting, finance, marketing, management and organizations, business economics, operations, information systems, and strategy) will also be considered. We seek emerging thought leaders with an international reputation for both substantive and theoretical contributions to the business disciplines, and an agenda for “research that matters.” Our search includes candidates with deep expertise in any of the business disciplines, as well as those whose interests and engagements broaden beyond the silos of single core business disciplines.
The Questrom School of Business believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. To that, we are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive. The Questrom School of Business seeks to continue diversifying our faculty, student and staff ranks, recognizing that diversity of experience and thought deepens the intellectual endeavor.
Successful candidates will have an established record as productive and impactful scholars, thought leadership and international reputation for substantive and theoretical contributions to business, potential for faculty engagement including cross-departmental relationships, and evidence of, and interest in, service leadership in the School, University, and disciplines. Collegiality and a collaborative spirit are a must.
Applications should include a cover letter, a complete curriculum vitae, three reference letters, and up to three recent publications or white papers in electronic (PDF) format.
