The Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh seeks applications for a full-time, tenure stream Assistant professor in Organizations and Entrepreneurship starting Fall 2022 (contingent on budgetary approval and upon authorization to work in the US).   The Latinx position will be located within the Organizations & Entrepreneurship Group in the Katz School. Members of this Group are both active leaders in research in such areas as entrepreneurship, strategy, ethics/business & society, macro and micro organization theory, and human resources, but as well have headed scholarly associations in their areas and held senior editorial positions in their journals. We seek applicants with research interests related to Latinx entrepreneurship.  The committee is open to many possibilities of Latinx research including implications for social change, inclusive innovation, pathways for immigrants, and/or entrepreneurship and innovation as related to underserved populations. The position requires a strong commitment to excellence in scholarly research with the potential to publish in top ranked journals and a commitment to teaching. The committee is open to both recent graduates as well as early stage assistant professors. Candidates should have completed their Ph.D. degree, or have strong prospects for completion prior to the July 1, 2022 start date.

 

Applicants should have expertise in supporting the University’s strategic goal of becoming a national model demonstrating that students from all backgrounds can imagine and develop solutions to problems and innovative new products and services that create value for themselves, their communities and society. The Katz Business School has a tradition of providing significant support to its assistant professors, including financial support for research, reduced teaching loads, and limited service demands. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to help shape and contribute towards a multi-year and multi-disciplinary strategy for developing a significant entrepreneurship and innovation research program with strong industry and community links.
