    With apologies for cross posting

    The Management and Organization (MOR) Department at the USC-Marshall School of Business seeks to hire new tenure-track faculty members in Strategy, to begin in Fall 2022. We welcome applications from candidates at all ranks. We seek candidates who are or have the potential to become leading scholars on topics relevant to strategy and organizations, including but not limited to innovation, entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility, alliances, and outsourcing. We are also looking for displayed capability in teaching.

    The MOR department is interdisciplinary; our 25 tenured/tenure-track faculty members span organizational behavior, organization theory, and strategy and have a variety of backgrounds, including psychology, sociology, economics, and general management/strategy. We are a collaborative and inclusive group of scholars who often work together and with graduate students. In the strategy area, research interests are broad, and faculty complement publishing in management and strategy journals with publications in discipline journals. We are open to all kinds of methods and approaches. We seek scholars who want to engage in a multi-disciplinary group and can focus on core strategy questions and maybe could potentially create undergraduate and/or MBA electives. We seek faculty who want to engage the strategy community, but publications in discipline journals are also valued. We are also committed to an environment that embraces a diversity of topics and methodological approaches.

    Our faculty teaches courses at the undergraduate, MBA, Ph.D., and executive levels. Please visit for more information about faculty research and publications. Internal funding for research is generous.

    How to Apply: Interested candidates should submit an electronic application online. At that site, you will be asked to upload several documents identified by the following names:

    Cover letter


    Curriculum: please attach one document containing a statement of research, a statement of teaching philosophy, and your dissertation proposal summary (for those just completing their Ph.D.).

    Contacts: we need contact information for three referees. The system will automatically generate a letter to each one, and the reply will be returned to the system confidentially (i.e., you will not be able to see the letters). Letters do not need to be sent directly to Marshall/MOR.

    Other: please create one pdf file containing at least two, but preferably three, representative research papers.

    All materials must be received on or before Friday, October 8. Only electronic application materials will be accepted, so please do not mail hard copies.

    If you have questions, please email

    Salary is dependent on qualifications, and employee benefits for full-time faculty are excellent.

    Minimum qualifications: doctoral degree or foreign equivalent in an appropriate area of study; no experience is required explicitly, although consideration may be given to candidates with experience teaching at the college/university level and/or who can demonstrate evidence of research competence.
