DESCRIPTION: The School of Business at the University of Redlands welcomes applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Business Analytics, Management Science, and Operations at the open rank, starting July 1, 2020.
The University of Redlands (www.redlands.edu) is recognized as a premiere regional liberal arts and professional education institution, situated on a picturesque campus in the city of Redlands, within one hour of Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree and Lake Arrowhead. The School of Business offers innovative undergraduate and graduate degree programs at the main campus in Redlands and at several locations throughout Southern California.
The Redlands School of Business offers a variety of coursework in business analytics, data-driven decision-making, management science/operations research, and operations management at the graduate and undergraduate level. The School aspires to broaden its portfolio of graduate programs by launching additional niche concentrations in Business Analytics and Data Science, culminating in graduate programs in these areas. The Redlands MBA has a one-of-its-kind concentration in Location Analytics and the MBA is offered both online and on-ground. The School’s Spatial Business Initiative (www.redlands.edu/SBI) and Center for Spatial Business (www.redlands.edu/CSB) both offer excellent opportunities for collaborative research projects in location-based analytics intersecting with business, marketing, information systems, operations, supply chain management, logistics, big data, and other areas.
Responsibilities of this position are research, teaching and service. The selected candidate is primarily expected to teach courses in Business Analytics, Management Science, Operations Management, and related areas. Preference will be given to applicants with solid teaching experience (on-ground and online). Those with cross-functional teaching as well as research interests are especially encouraged to apply. Candidates must have an active research agenda or demonstrated potential for research in the area of analytics, broadly defined. Research interests spanning optimization, simulation, big data (social media, Internet of Things), machine and deep learning, artificial intelligence, data science, and location analytics, in relation to business as well as other areas (such as, healthcare, sports, etc.) are welcome. Programming experience and knowledge of analytics softwares is highly desirable. Industry experience in business analytics, operations management, and information systems while not required, is also desirable. In addition to teaching and scholarly activities, faculty also participate in School- and University-wide service, and interact with the southern California region's business community.
Students in the university’s School of Business span the greater southern California region comprised of Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside, Orange, and San Bernardino counties. Students usually have a vast array of professional and life experiences and often include veterans. Applications should describe in their letter of interest their teaching philosophy and how their teaching and/or scholarship will advance critical thinkers and problem-solvers. A diversity statement is also required as part of the application documenting any academic and/or professional experience with teaching, advising, mentoring a diverse body of students, as well as providing consulting to diverse business, government, and non-profit organizations.
POSITION CRITERIA: Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Business Analytics, Management Science, Operations Research, Operations Management, Industrial Engineering, or a related field. ABD candidates will be considered but must have a completed Ph.D. before the anticipated start date of July 1, 2020. Hires beyond the Visiting Assistant Professor level must be justified through significant and sustained teaching, along with an advanced research agenda. All applicants should have a record of teaching achievement in their functional area and vibrant interest in cross-functional teaching to non-traditional, professionally employed learners, and business education within the context of liberal arts and science disciplines. Since the School of Business operates without discipline-based departments, collegiality and communication skills are essential.
