    The Department of Business Administration in the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics at the University of Delaware invites applications for a tenure-track position in Management, with a focus on Human Resource Management, starting August 16, 2022.

    Candidates must have a PhD in Management, Human Resource Management, Industrial and Labor Relations, or Industrial/Organizational Psychology.  Candidates should also be pursuing a high-quality research program with the objective of publishing in top-tier management journals, such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Annals, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Management, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Strategic Management Journal, and Personnel Psychology. Research support in the department is excellent, including a one-semester, third-year research sabbatical; a large, computerized behavioral lab; a departmental subject pool; the availability of research and teaching assistants; access to databases (e.g., WRDS); and opportunities to apply for research grants.  

    Candidates must also demonstrate potential for high-quality teaching. Primary teaching responsibility is in human resource management at the undergraduate and/or graduate levels. The teaching load will initially be three courses per year, and junior faculty are given minimal service requirements.

Located on an attractive campus in Newark, Delaware, roughly an hour from Philadelphia and Baltimore, and about 2 hours from New York and Washington, D.C., the University is a state-assisted institution with a strong private endowment and selective admission. It is one of the oldest land-grant and sea-grant institutions in the nation.
