    Dear Colleagues,

    I hope you are enjoying the conference, whether in person or virtually. 

    The Management Department at the University of Oregon is recruiting for three tenure-track positions (two Assistant; one Sr. Assistant/Associate/Full) with a focus on innovation/entrepreneurship to start Sept 2023.  This is a very exciting time for our department and we want to emphasize that while we are focused on people studying innovation and/or entrepreneurship, we see these as broad topics that can be examined from a variety of perspectives and encourage people from a range of disciplines to apply. We will begin reviewing applications on Sept 6, 2022 and the positions will remain open until filled.


    Feel free to reach out to the search chair, Pete Younkin (younkin@uoregon.edu), or any member of our group with questions.





    The Lundquist College's Department of Management is a collegial and intellectually diverse group whose members publish in and serve as editors or on the editorial review boards of several top management journals. Current members (as of Fall 2022) are Andrew Nelson, Lauren Lanahan, Chris Liu, Ralph Heidl, Alex Murray, Anne Parmigiani, Michael Russo, David Wagner, and Pete Younkin. In addition, emeritus faculty Alan Meyer, Chuck Snow, and William Starbuck remain involved in departmental activities. Many members of the department are also affiliated with the new Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact, a major part of the University's broader efforts to support the study of innovation and entrepreneurship. A hallmark of the department is the diversity of intellectual traditions and research methods employed, and we take great pride in examining related topics from a variety of perspectives. Recent papers have ranged from qualitative studies on the rebirth of synthesizers, to field experiments on racial and gender bias, to longitudinal studies on the effect of SBIR grants on regional employment, to studies of the sleep patterns of founders. By hiring three additional faculty interested in innovation and entrepreneurship, we hope to build upon the department's current strengths and create a vibrant community of scholars examining similar questions from diverse perspectives.


    Assistant level: Completed or nearly completed Ph.D. degree in management or a related field (e.g. Sociology, Public Policy, Political Science, Psychology) with demonstrated potential for research and teaching excellence in the areas of innovation and/or entrepreneurship.

    Associate/Full Professor level: Ph.D. degree in management or a related field; a record of scholarly accomplishment consistent with rank that includes publications on innovation and/or entrepreneurship in leading academic management journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Organization Science, Management Science, Research Policy and Strategic Management Journal; demonstrated teaching excellence.

    Applicants for the Associate/Full Professor position are welcome to reach out to Peter Younkin (younkin@uoregon.edu ) with questions or to discuss the role before Sept 6, 2022. Although we do not anticipate formal interviews at the Academy of Management annual meeting in August 2022, members of the department will be available to answer questions from applicants for this position.  All applicants must submit a formal application online via our job system to be considered.

    We particularly welcome applications from scholars who are from populations historically underrepresented in the academy, and/or who have experience working with diverse populations.
