Job Description

The successful candidate will pursue and promote a progressive research agenda that advances the field of supply chain management ( SCM ), while also contributing to ongoing teaching and service efforts within the Whitman School and among its community partners. We expect the selected individual for this hire to join the faculty for the 2024-25 academic year.

The Supply Chain Management program at the Whitman School has an outstanding history of excellence. It was the first SCM program in the nation, created in 1919. The SCM program offers degree programs at the undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral levels, as well as a standalone MS Supply Chain Management program in both residential and online formats. The SCM faculty are highly research active and publish regularly in leading journals. The SCM faculty also have high levels of visibility in professional organizations such as MSOM and INFORMS, as well as in the public press. Among other activities, the SCM faculty has, since 1949, hosted the annual Salzberg Memorial Lecture program that recognizes exemplary practitioners and scholars. Among other accolades, the SCM program is ranked among the top 25 nationally by Gartner. SCM faculty members are expected to engage in world-class scholarly research, teach courses in supply chain management (core or elective courses), contribute to service-related initiatives and organizational citizenship, and work collaboratively with other faculty members. Successful candidates should have earned a doctorate from an accredited program or expect degree completion by summer 2024. We are looking for candidates with a clear focus on supply chain management and a demonstrated willingness to conduct high-quality scholarly supply chain management research and publish in leading academic journals. Candidates should also have demonstrated potential for teaching excellence, including using innovative pedagogical approaches, and have the ability to contribute positively to a participative, collegial setting.

Commitment to Supporting and Hiring Veterans

Syracuse University has a long history of engaging veterans and the military-connected community through its educational programs, community outreach, and employment programs.

The University’s contemporary commitment to veterans builds on this historical legacy, and extends to both class-leading initiatives focused on making an SU degree accessible and affordable to the post-9/11 generation of veterans, and also programs designed to position Syracuse University as the employer of choice for military veterans, members of the Guard and Reserve, and military family members.

To do so, we commit ourselves to promoting a community that celebrates and models the principles of diversity and inclusivity.
