The ideal candidate should have (1) an earned doctorate in business or related field with an emphasis in organizational behavior and/or human resource management from a nationally-accredited institution (advanced ABD candidates will be considered but must have their doctorate completed by August 15, 2023); (2) evidence or promise of a strong and innovative program of research in relevant areas of organizational behavior and/or human resource management; (3) demonstration of recent teaching excellence in organizational behavior and/or human resource management courses; and (4) a strong and continuing commitment to both research and teaching. Demonstrated interest in secondary areas such as analytics, and social and environmental impact, consistent with the School's initiatives and that complement our faculty's research portfolio, will be viewed as a plus.
