We seek a candidate interested in raising the College’s involvement with entrepreneurship to a new level. (Entrepreneurship is a relatively new major within the department). We are open to applicants from any business-related field within the department, but the applicant must qualify to be holder of the Lowder-Weil Eminent Scholar position – preferably at the level of full Professor. The Lowder-Weil endowment supports added salary, research, and travel funding. (Note: the Lowder-Weil scholar award follows a two-year, renewable award process.)

We seek an individual with demonstrated evidence of …
  • strengths in undergraduate and graduate teaching, including online teaching,
  • excellence in scholarship and research as evidenced by a strong record of peer-reviewed publications,
  • excellent written and interpersonal skills to effectively interact with diverse audiences, and
  • a commitment to promoting and enhancing diversity and inclusion.
Individuals meeting these requirements and with practical field experience promoting entrepreneurial activity and some administrative experience (to support the future Lowder-Weil involvements) are especially encouraged to apply.

The Lowder-Weil’s key responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
  • fostering and maintaining collaborative relationships with external entities,
  • providing good teaching, scholarly activity, and professional development supporting the College, and
  • leading student recruitment and retention efforts to increase the number of Entrepreneurship majors.
We expect student engagement as related to likely “pitch” contest processes, involvement with the Montgomery business community, as well as leveraging connections to Auburn University. The Department of Business Administration includes fifteen full-time faculty. The department offers BSBA majors in Finance, Entrepreneurship, Human Resources, Management, and Marketing and provides the majority of courses within the MBA and MHA programs. All degrees are AACSB accredited.

Individuals from historically underrepresented groups and all those who share our commitment to inclusivity and passion for the strength of our diversity are strongly encouraged to apply.
