Applications are invited from qualified individuals for a tenure-track position (open rank) in Strategic Management beginning August 16, 2019. Candidates applying at the Assistant Professor level should expect to have completed their doctoral degree by Spring 2019. We seek candidates with an expertise in Strategy, who can interact with the 'Strategy, Entrepreneurship & International Business' (SEIB) faculty group within the Department of Business Administration.

We are interested in persons who have achieved or have the potential to achieve prominence through research in the strategy area and in related fields (e.g., entrepreneurship, international business). While a Ph.D. in strategy or a related field is required, we are open to candidates with disciplinary training beyond business (e.g., economics, history, political science) who demonstrate the ability to conduct innovative and impactful research on important strategy topics. Teaching expectations are also high.

The University of Illinois offers an outstanding tradition of scholarship and a supportive environment for faculty development and excellence. The Gies College of Business at Illinois received a monumental $150 million investment from U of I alumnus, Larry and Beth Gies. This gift ranks amongst the largest to any business school in U.S. history. This investment will grow and strengthen our investment in students, faculty, and world-class programs and will solidify our distinction as a global innovator in business. The Gies College of Business offers the Ph.D., MBA, iMBA, and specialized Masters' programs, as well as undergraduate programs.

As part of the larger Department of Business Administration, with leading scholars in Information Systems, Management, Marketing, and Operations Management among other related fields, we offer a uniquely hospitable environment for interdisciplinary work, as well as the opportunity to work with talented doctoral students. We seek like-minded individuals who are committed to engaged scholarship of the highest caliber. Additional information about the Department, our programs and faculty may be found at https://business.illinois.edu/ba/. Salary is competitive and commensurate with rank and experience.

In order to ensure full consideration, applications must be received by October 30, 2018 to ensure full consideration.

Application materials must include a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, a sample publication and/or working paper, evidence of past teaching success, and contact information for at least three letters of recommendation.
