Brandeis University invites applications for a tenured or tenure-track position in the area of Operations Management. We are especially interested in candidates working on topics in technology management, service operations, supply chains, sustainability, behavioral operations, or global operations strategy and execution.
The successful candidate will be actively engaged in research and be an innovative scholar who is knowledgeable about issues of business practice. Creativity in course development and effectiveness in teaching will be valued highly. For applicants at the senior level, some experience in academic leadership will be expected. Although the positions can be filled at any level, candidates with a few years' of academic experience beyond their PhD will receive priority.
The successful candidates will teach in our undergraduate Business major, as well as in Brandeis International Business School's MBA Program. The fast-growing undergraduate program is one of the largest academic concentrations on campus, with 100 majors and 50 minors per year; it combines liberal-arts studies in the College of Arts and Sciences with core business subjects at IBS.
Brandeis IBS focuses on the management, finance, and economics of global markets and organizations and related policy issues. Our 400 graduate students come from over 50 countries and are enrolled in MBA, MA, MSF and PhD programs. Most faculty members at Brandeis IBS teach a mix of graduate and undergraduate courses. Specialists in business, finance, and economics work closely together in a collegial and rigorous academic environment. There are no functional departments at Brandeis IBS and faculty. Brandeis University is located on a beautiful campus in a suburb of Boston.
Candidates should submit a CV, a letter expressing interest, and three recommendations. Teaching evaluations and one or more recent research papers are also helpful. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but candidates are requested to apply by November 1, 2013. Finalists will be invited for campus interviews in early Spring. Procedural questions about this search may be addressed to Echo Bergquist at email@example.com.
