Associate Dean for Research and Faculty

Job description

Position Number 998824

Functional Title Associate Dean for Research and Faculty

Position Type Administration - Faculty

Position Summary

The Joseph M. Bryan School of Business & Economics at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) invites nominations, expressions of interest, and applications for the position of Associate Dean for Research and Faculty. The preferred starting date is August 1, 2018.

The selected candidate shall have three primary tasks: increase the dollar volume and engagement in externally funded research; manage a variety of school-wide, faculty-focused processes, such as professional development, annual and post-tenure review, and promotion and tenure; and maintain a level of personal research productivity leading to scholarly publication.

Applicants must hold a PhD/DBA degree and be tenured at the associate professor or professor level. The discipline must be able to tie in some way to the business school. Framed so broadly, we expect and encourage applicants from a variety of Engineering areas (Industrial Engineering/Operations Research, Engineering Management, Systems Engineering, Computer Engineering, etc.), Arts & Sciences areas (e.g., Computer Science, Statistics, Psychology, Sociology, and Economics), Apparel Studies/Merchandising, Hospitality & Tourism, plus traditional business disciplines such as Business Economics, Information Systems, and Operations/Supply Chain Management, among others. What shall be key is one's record of success as a PI in attracting government and corporate funding, or possibly as a faculty director or dean of research who has had substantial success building a strong, externally funded, research operation. Additionally, those serving in program director roles at federal agencies may be attractive candidates, depending on other qualifications.

The Associate Dean reports to the Dean of the Bryan School and shall be a key member of the School's leadership team. S/he shall serve alongside the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Budgeting, the Assistant Dean for External Affairs, the academic department heads, the Director of Assessment and Planning, the Budget Manager, and the Dean's Executive Assistant. S/he also serves as the School's representative on the Research Advisory Council for the Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement. One employee, trained in both pre- and post-award processes and management, works primarily for the Associate Dean, and there is a strong tie to the faculty director of the Center for Industry Research and Engagement (CIRE), which focuses primarily on industry contract research. There is also a tie to the academic departments, not only because that is where faculty members reside and research occurs, but because post-award grant management occurs primarily at the department level.

Minimum Qualifications
  • PhD/DBA degree and be tenured at the associate professor or professor level.
  • Discipline must be able to tie in some way to the business school.
  • Record of success in attracting government funding.
