Associate/Full Professor and the Chair of the Department of Management

Job description

The Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver (DU) invites applications for a Chair of the Department of Management, starting Fall 2020. Academics holding a doctoral degree and qualified for tenure as either Associate or Full Professor will be considered.

Position Summary
Reporting to the Senior Associate Dean for faculty and research, the Chair will have responsibility for the continued development of an influential department distinguished by teaching and research excellence.

Maintenance of AACSB academic qualifications (Scholarly Academic) is required.
