Assistant Professor of Management - Entrepreneurship -
The University of Richmond Department of Management at the
Robins School of Business invites applications for a full-time
tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin
in the 2023-24 academic year.
A Ph.D. in entrepreneurship or innovation management, with some
expertise in both disciplines, is required to be completed by the
start date. The successful candidate will teach 5 courses per year
(approximately 20-24 students per section) at the undergraduate and
MBA levels in the areas of entrepreneurship and innovation.
Research leading to publications in the top academic journals in
these areas is also required. In addition, the successful candidate
is expected to provide service to the department, school and/or
university. Consistent with these requirements, the successful
candidate will have demonstrated competence in both research and
teaching to a degree that is expected for their stage of career,
with expectations increasing if the candidate has already completed
their Ph.D. and is teaching at another university.
The Department of Management is a highly collegial and
productive group of scholars who value both excellent teaching and
impactful research and publication. Collaboration on research
projects provides important opportunities for mentoring junior
faculty, which is a norm in the department. Our faculty have many
publications in top management and entrepreneurship journals,
including Academy of Management Review, Entrepreneurship Theory
& Practice, Journal of Business Venturing, Strategic
Entrepreneurship Journal, Journal of Management, Academy of
Management Journal, and many others. Small class sizes mean that
our faculty know their students really well. Attesting to the
importance of international education, 60% of our students study
abroad prior to graduation. Our students tend to do extremely well
in business, and many of them come back to the business school to
serve in a variety of roles as well as providing financial and
other resources that provide opportunities to our students.
Our popular entrepreneurship concentration (for business majors)
and minor (for non-business majors) are supported within the Robins
School by a group of entrepreneurs and founders in residence. In
addition, the University has made a substantial commitment to
entrepreneurship by launching its Creativity, Innovation, and
Entrepreneurship (CIE) initiative, raising funding for programming,
hiring a director, and offering courses that advance new student
businesses. We have strong relationships with the Richmond
entrepreneurial ecosystem that enable student internships, guest
speakers, and unique course offerings.
