    The Department of Management & Leadership in the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston seeks qualified applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position, starting in the fall of 2024. We are particularly interested in applicants with expertise in People Analytics, Human Resource Analytics, and/or Strategic Human Resources. However, applicants with interests in all areas of management will be seriously considered (e.g., Human Resources Management, Organization Theory, Organizational Behavior, and Strategic Management). Existing and/or strong potential for excellence in both scholarly research and teaching will be crucial for the successful applicant.

    The Department of Management & Leadership has successfully attracted excellent researchers and teachers at senior and junior levels. Our faculty have published in journals such as Academy of Management Annals, Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Leadership Quarterly, Organization Science, Personnel Psychology, and Strategic Management Journal. They have been honored with many research awards, including best paper awards from the Academy of Management Annals, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Management, and Journal of Organizational Behavior. They also have served and will continue to serve in important editorial positions.

Initiatives created by our Dean and others focus on extending longstanding activities and excellence in several key domains, including but not limited to grand challenges as defined by the United Nations, and artificial intelligence. The Economist recently ranked Bauer College's full-time MBA program #26 among U.S. public business schools.

    Houston, the 4th largest city in the U.S., offers a strong professional and personal environment. The two largest economic sectors are energy and medical research and services.

Four out of five jobs are service and professional jobs. The cost of living supports a high quality of life, where one can have suburban living in the heart of a great metropolis that is among the most diverse cities in the country.

    The University of Houston is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Minorities, women, veterans, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply. Applications from outside of the U.S. also are welcome.
