The Management Department in the School of Business at the University of Connecticut invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor to begin in Fall 2022.

The successful candidate will be expected to share a deep commitment to publishing high quality research in premier management journals, to effective instruction at the undergraduate and graduate levels, to the development of innovative courses, and to the mentoring of students in their professional development. In addition, individuals will be expected to contribute to scholarship and outreach targeted at the professional community so as to maintain faculty qualifications under AACSB guidelines.  Successful candidates will also be expected to assist the University in its efforts to broaden participation among members of under-represented groups; demonstrate through their research, teaching, and/or public engagement the richness of diversity in the learning experience; integrate multicultural experiences into relevant course content; contribute to the development of pedagogical techniques designed to meet the needs of diverse learning styles and intellectual interests.

The faculty of the UConn Management Department are a group of scholars, teachers, and people that find professional and personal fulfillment in working with each other and making a difference through research, working with students, and engaging the business community.  Our small size (11 tenure-track, 5 non-tenure in-residence) makes for a cohesive yet multidisciplinary program with collaborative efforts across management areas. Our per capita research productivity in premier journals (e.g., Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Applied Psychology, Strategic Management Journal, Organizational Science, Management Science, and Journal of Management) ranks among the top management departments worldwide. The Department of Management is the academic home of entrepreneurship offering undergraduate and MBA concentrations and minors in connection with the Schools of Engineering and Nursing. This position will support the growth of our research and teaching capabilities in the discipline following the success of our Innovation Quest Program, the Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and the newly created Peter J. Werth Institute for Entrepreneurship, created after a transformational gift of $22.5 million in 2018.
