The Ohio University Department of Management in the College of Business invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Strategy (up to 2 positions) beginning in August 2018. We are looking for student-centered, research-active, innovative faculty members who would be able to teach a writing intensive, capstone course in Business Strategy, to teach graduate level Strategy courses in one or more of our MBA programs, and to teach courses in either International Business, Entrepreneurship, or Strategic Leadership.
All applicants must have a track record of successful teaching in the designated areas and an active research agenda underway. Experience teaching graduate students preferred, but not required. Experience with on-line or blended teaching desirable, but not required. Ohio University's College of Business is accredited by the AACSB. We offer a BBA with a range of majors, all of whom must complete the Strategy capstone course. Our department has majors and Certificate programs in Entrepreneurship, International Business, and Management & Strategic Leadership. We also have a range of graduate programs that require equivalent courses. Tenure track faculty members have a normal teaching load of 5 courses per year, with typical section sizes of 40. For early career hires (fresh from PhD programs or 1 year out) the teaching load can be reduced for the first two years to 4 courses. Salaries for the appointment are competitive based on AACSB metrics.
