Posted 11 days ago

We are looking to add two faculty members in different roles in the Supply Chain/Operations Management domain.  Both positions have an anticipated start date of fall 2018.

Tenure track position (position ID 6095)
We are currently recruiting for either an untenured, tenure-track faculty member in Supply Chain Management at the Assistant Professor level or a tenured faculty member at the Associate Professor level.

Successful candidates will pursue and promote a research agenda in supply chain management focused on premier-quality publications in leading journals; provide intellectual leadership for junior faculty and doctoral students; play a pivotal role in extending the national reputation of the department through scholarship and service; and teach courses across our undergraduate and graduate programs. Candidates must be pursuing or have obtained a doctoral degree in Supply Chain Management or a related area.

Non-tenure track position (position ID 6094)

We are currently recruiting for an Academic Professional Track (non-tenure-track) faculty member in Supply Chain Management with the title of Assistant, Associate, or Full Clinical Professor, Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, or Executive Professor. 

Candidates for the title of Assistant, Associate, or Full Clinical Professor must have an earned doctorate or be near completion of a doctorate.  Teaching is the main responsibility, at 3 classes per semester, but there are also research and service responsibilities.  Candidates for the title of Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, or Executive Professor should have an earned Master's degree.  There are no research expectations for these titles.  Teaching responsibilities are four classes per term.

We are 2nd in the world in editorships in those journals plus the Operations Management Department of Management Science.
