We are interested in scholars with expertise or interests in technology strategy including innovation and management of technologies related to AUS or evolution of autonomous technology-based industries and ecosystems. We are also interested in scholars who seek to better understand and describe the innovation and management of these newly emerging technologies at the firm level and identify the evolving industry and ecosystems dynamics. We also encourage applications from scholars who focus on the interaction between firms, government regulators, and other societal stakeholders to better appreciate the benefits and costs of such new technologies for all concerned stakeholders.
We are looking for an emerging scholar who can contribute to the above areas. Successful candidates must have an earned PhD in Management with emphasis on Strategy and/or a closely related discipline by the start of the appointment. Candidates with 1-3 years of experience will be considered, as will those who are currently ABD.

We expect the person to publish in highly visible journals such as Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science, Management Science, etc., and other journals that are highly regarded in related cluster areas when appropriate. We encourage the person to work with colleagues within the department and across the cluster to research important organizational problems relating to technology strategy. Candidates are expected to demonstrate promise for innovative teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The school seeks candidates whose research, teaching, or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education.
Candidates will be evaluated according to their research potential, the overall quality of their academic preparation and scholarly work, evidence of commitment to teaching and skills as a teacher, and strength of recommendations.
