Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management, Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management (TIES) Group
Two Tenure Track Faculty Positions in Entrepreneurship and Technological Innovation

The MIT Sloan School of Management is seeking candidates for two tenure-track faculty positions in Entrepreneurship and Technological Innovation. Candidates who will complete the Ph.D. by the start of employment, or who are one to four years post Ph.D., will be considered, as will more senior candidates.

JOB QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates may have concentrated their doctoral studies in the organizational and behavioral sciences, strategic management, or related fields, such as economics, sociology, history, or other relevant social sciences. Candidates with a doctorate in engineering or the physical or life sciences would also be of interest if they have already shown an ability to conduct scholarly research in entrepreneurship or technological innovation. Candidates must have a rigorous research portfolio that advances social science and is relevant to managerial practice.

Teaching is an integral part of each position. One position is intended for candidates whose primary focus is on innovation-based entrepreneurship and the management of early-stage companies. Candidates whose focus is on the field of innovation and innovation management may be considered for a second position.

The MIT Sloan TIES group places a premium on scholarly research and doctoral training and believes that high-impact scholarship is cultivated in a collegial, interdisciplinary environment. Accordingly, the group has extensive cross-links with other groups at Sloan and the wider Cambridge academic community.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Please submit applications electronically at: providing a cover letter describing research and teaching goals, a CV, and one or two papers that indicate your research focus and capabilities. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted via this link.

We strongly prefer that applications and letters of recommendation be submitted by November 1, 2012, but we will consider applications that are submitted by November 15, 2012, especially if they have or are receiving a PhD in economics.

MIT is an equal opportunity employer committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.
