    The Department of Management, Information Systems, and Entrepreneurship (MISE) in the Carson College of Business at Washington State University is seeking qualified candidates for one permanent tenure-track faculty position in Organizational Behavior/Human Resource Management (OB/HR), based at our Pullman campus. We will consider candidates at the rank of assistant professor, with the position subject to budgetary approval.

    Qualifications: Candidates should have earned a Ph.D. in Management or a closely aligned field from a nationally or internationally recognized university by the time of hire. Candidates should demonstrate the potential to establish a successful record of scholarly research, as evidenced by copies of published articles, submitted manuscripts, and working papers targeted for publication in top-tier Management journals. Evidence of potential for excellence in teaching and a commitment to teaching effectiveness at undergraduate and graduate levels is also expected.

    Preferred qualifications: We are open to a variety of research areas and methodologies that complement our current capabilities. We are particularly interested in scholars whose work aligns with that of existing research faculty. An interest in research and/or teaching that advances equity, diversity, and inclusion of historically underrepresented communities and aligns with WSU's strategic plan is especially welcome. Candidates should be capable of teaching a variety of undergraduate and graduate-level Management courses in face-to-face and online settings, with the likely expectation of teaching an undergraduate course in general business as part of the college's "Next Carson Coug" curriculum.

    Duties:  The successful candidate will be expected to conduct high quality academic research, teach four courses per year (typically two per semester), and make rank-appropriate service contributions to the Department, College, University, and community. The candidate will also be expected to participate actively in the Management Ph.D. program.

    Term, Compensation and Support: The term of appointment is a nine-month academic year, beginning on August 16, 2023. Rank is at the assistant professor level with competitive salary and benefits and excellent retirement programs. Summer support is provided.

    Department of Management, Information Systems, and Entrepreneurship (MISE):

    The MISE Department provides an exceptional work environment with highly supportive colleagues actively engaged in quality research, teaching, and service. OB/HR is a core strength of the department and a top priority at the Carson College of Business and Washington State University where publishing in top management journals is rewarded. In the past five years, Management and Entrepreneurship faculty and students have published in respected outlets for OB/HR research such as the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Organizational Research Methods, and the Journal of Management. The MISE Department includes 34 faculty (across 4 campuses) with substantial plans to grow the department and its core strengths in management.

    Founded in 1890 in Pullman, WSU is the state of Washington's land-grant institution and one of the country's top public research universities. WSU has an enrollment of over 31,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students and approximately 6,500 faculty and staff at its five campuses (Pullman, Spokane, Tri-Cities, Vancouver, and Everett), and online through its Global Campus. Unlike most multi-campus systems, WSU operates as an integrated university; thus, regardless of campus location, all MISE faculty are full members of the MISE department.  The business curricula at all five campuses are accredited as one curriculum by the AACSB (AACSB accreditation was renewed for five years in 2019). 

    WSU is a premier research institution, ranked as "very high research activity" (R1) by the Carnegie Foundation, with ambitions to grow.  The university is currently pursuing its goal of becoming one of the nation's top 25 public research universities by 2030 through its "Drive to 25" or "D25" initiative. D25 is the University's highest strategic priority.
