The Management and Organization (MOR) Department at the USC-Marshall School of Business seeks to hire new tenure-track faculty members in organizational behavior, to begin in Fall 2021. We welcome applications from candidates at all ranks. We seek candidates who are, or have the potential to become, leading scholars on topics relevant to organizations. We are also looking for displayed capability in teaching.
The MOR department is involved in the study of organizational behavior and strategic management; our 24 tenured/tenure-track faculty members have backgrounds in organizational behavior, psychology, sociology, economics and general management. In the OB area, research interests are broad and address micro and meso issues using both quantitative/experimental and qualitative/observational approaches, among others. Our faculty teaches courses at the undergraduate, MBA, Ph.D. and executive levels. Please visit http://www.marshall.usc.edu/MOR for more information about faculty research and publications. Internal funding for research is generous.
We are looking broadly, so any research focus is welcome. However, we are particularly interested in research focused on technology/innovation, diversity/equity/inclusion, and ethics, as well as how any of these areas intersect with leadership (broadly defined). We are also eager to continue to diversify the range of methods used among our OB faculty.
We seek applicants who are passionate about teaching the next generation of business leaders and who desire to be part of an inclusive educational community in preparing future equity-minded leaders, innovators, and visionaries. Strong candidates should have a background in business with an understanding of today’s global business environment. Within your materials, please share how you would contribute to and promote Marshall’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in teaching, curricula, and research.
