GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business (RCB) invites applications for one or more non-tenure track faculty positions in its new Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute, effective as early as May 1st, 2018, but as late as the fall semester (August 1st) 2018. This/these position(s) will have faculty status. Successful candidates should hold a terminal degree (Ph.D., J.D., etc.) in his or her field from an accredited university, certifications in the field of expertise (entrepreneurship and innovation), and be qualified to teach courses in this area at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The type of faculty position will depend upon the interests and academic credentials of the candidate. 


We are, in all cases, seeking one or more individuals with a passion and demonstrated capability for developing young entrepreneurs drawn from our Georgia State University student population We are especially interested in applicants with prior, direct and successful engagement with startup companies.

Clinical Professor (Assistant, Associate)

Clinical Professor position(s) candidates must have demonstrated a high level of classroom performance, have significant applicable professional experience, demonstrated capability for publishing research in refereed journals, and an earned terminal degree from an AACSB-accredited university or international equivalent with a strong orientation towards the area of entrepreneurship and innovation. Preference will be given to candidates with teaching interests in one or more of the following areas: business modeling, lean startup concepts, corporate innovation and intrapreneurship, design thinking, start-up and scale-up business development, or related.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach existing courses as well as to contribute to the development of new courses. She or he will also be expected to contribute to the Institute’s and University’s growing list of non-curricular activities including their creation, participation, mentoring, and general unit support. Successful candidates will also be expected to publish applied and/or pedagogical research.


A university Lecturer is a university academic appointment where it is expected that the largest proportion of the allocable time is spent in course design, preparation, and delivery. There are few research expectations. There are service expectations. A Lecturer is expected to keep up with his/her field of practice and bring practical, current knowledge of that field to both the classroom and the overall design of the assigned courses. Career progression allowed (e.g., Senior Lecturer). 

While a masters degree in an appropriate field is acceptable, a terminal degree in an aligned area is strongly preferred. Preference will be given to those with several years of diversified teaching experience as well as teaching using more modern pedagogical approaches such as problem-based learning, flipped classroom and experiential learning.


The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute (ENI) of the J. Mack Robinson College of Business (RCB) at Georgia State University became an approved academic institute, in mid-2016. It began offering courses for one year prior to its Institute designation. Predecessor course offerings and the Herman J. Russell Sr. Center for Entrepreneurship have existed in RCB for over twenty years. ENI is a significant strategic effort supported by both the university and RCB to build upon, revise and extend these prior efforts under a single academic unit, servicing the university’s needs and desire for furthering entrepreneurship and innovation course and experience offerings among its now, 50,000+ students.

ENI offers degree programs with inter-disciplinary majors in entrepreneurship, alone and in conjunction with the Creative Media Industries Institute (media entrepreneurship) and the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies (social entrepreneurship) at the undergraduate level, its own minor (available to all students at the University) and graduate degrees in conjunction with Biomedical Sciences as well as an entrepreneurship concentration for Robinson College’s MBA’s. An RCB undergraduate major BBA/Entrepreneurship is now approved and will begin full enrollments in fall 2018.  Additional BIS and MIS offerings related to ENI are in progress. Student growth for our current offerings, thus far, has been exponential (students and credit hours).
