The Strategy & Innovation Department at the Boston University Questrom School of Business invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor. Pending Provost budgetary approval, this position will begin July 1, 2022 for the Fall semester at Boston University.

The S&I Department places particular emphasis on the study of innovation and strategy in different kinds of organizations and the role of technological change in creating new industries and shaping existing ones. The department’s faculty represents an interdisciplinary group of researchers with backgrounds in strategy, economics, sociology and organizational theory. We believe that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. BU has redoubled its commitment to more fully embody its founding principles, and we welcome new colleagues who have interest in joining us in this project. To that end, we are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensuring that BU is inclusive, equitable, and diverse institution.

Prospective candidates must demonstrate the ability to produce original and innovative scholarly work of the highest possible quality and impact; a PhD degree in business, management, or other closely-related areas from a research university is required.

Special consideration will be given to applicants whose research focuses on areas of strategic emphasis for the Questrom School of Business (such as health and life sciences, digital technologies, and sustainability and social impact), ), who can contribute to building the department’s capabilities in entrepreneurship and global business, and who possess demonstrated teaching abilities at the undergraduate and graduate level. Interest and experience with modalities such as online would be appreciated. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor.

Organization

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
