Bridge to Faculty Program in the Department of Management

Darla Moore School of Business

University of South Carolina

As part of the new Bridge to Faculty Program at the University of South Carolina, the Department of Department of Management seeks a faculty fellow in the field of organizational behavior, human resources, and/or strategy to begin in Fall 2024. This two-year program is intended to lead to a tenure-track position in the Department.

In keeping with the University’s commitment to “cultivating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive campus where every individual has the opportunity to flourish and thrive,” the Bridge to Faculty Program is designed to attract and retain promising scholars to the University of South Carolina with an emphasis on outreach to underrepresented early-career scholars. Specifically, the program seeks to recruit early-career scholars who, if successful during the program, will have the opportunity to transition to a tenure-track faculty appointment at USC at the start of the 2026-2027 academic year. As a member of the 2nd cohort of Bridge to Faculty Fellows from across the university, the Fellow will have a home in the Department of Management alongside a dynamic group of scholars. With the additional support of USC’s Office of Access and Opportunity and Provost’s Office, Faculty Fellows will have access to institutional resources designed to support their readiness for a tenure-track position.

The Faculty Fellow will be expected to: (1) develop a robust program of research in organizational behavior, human resources, and/or strategy (2) meet regularly with faculty mentors; (3) participate in professional development opportunities; and (4) participate in the intellectual life of the Department of Management and the University. The Fellow will also have the option to teach one class in the second year.

This is a 12-month research faculty appointment. Upon demonstration of academic productivity, it will be renewed for a second year, and with evidence of continued productivity, it can be converted to a tenure-track faculty position in the third year. Salary is competitive, and the position includes a generous benefits package with access to medical, vision, dental, and life insurance.
