    The Department of Management at the University of Kentucky seeks applications for a tenure-track position at the (possibly advanced) assistant professor level beginning fall 2022. Candidates should have research expertise in social network analysis (particularly stochastic modeling), though the area of substantive application is open. Candidates should be able to teach courses at all levels, including in our newly launched Master of Science in Strategic Human Resource Management and Analytics (the curriculum includes two courses in organizational network analysis, as well as courses in research methods and analytics). Eligible candidates must hold a Ph.D. in management or a related field. ABDs who expect to complete their degrees by August 2022 may also be considered. The position may also involve other duties such as curriculum-building, assisting with program management, and mentoring students.

    The Gatton College of Business and Economics values excellence in research and teaching and offers an outstanding research environment. The Department of Management is home to the LINKS Center for Social Network Analysis which attracts international researchers from a wide variety of disciplines. We seek scholars who can contribute to and enhance our research profile and visibility.

    Application Procedure:

    Candidates must include a letter of interest (upload under cover letter), a current CV, and the names and contact information for at least three references (used to solicit recommendation letters in advanced rounds of the search process). Applications will be reviewed immediately, but the position will remain open until filled.

    Please note:  Given the COVID-19 pandemic, and the need to protect our university community including our students, staff, faculty and visitors, the University of Kentucky is requiring COVID-19 vaccination for all new hires prior to starting employment. Therefore, as of October 18, 2021, all new hires prior to their first day of employment must submit appropriate documentation showing, i) completion of the first vaccination against COVID-19, or ii) completion of the full vaccination series against COVID-19, or iii) approved exemption (medical contraindications or a sincerely held religious belief) through the formal exemption process from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement. For those employees who have completed the first vaccination against COVID-19 prior to their first day of employment, the second vaccination (if applicable) must be completed following the vaccination recommended schedule to be considered fully vaccinated.
