Tenure Track Position in Organizational Behavior
Lehigh University’s Department of Management seeks to fill one tenure track position in organizational behavior beginning fall 2008. Preference will be given to faculty desiring consideration at the rank of either associate or full professor with a high profile research record. Experienced assistant professors will only be considered with an outstanding research record. Active scholarship in leadership and interpersonal processes with a strong focus on research methods is desirable. An excellent teaching record is required with a broad interest in OB and HR preferable. Team teaching, distance education, and web-based instruction are likely. Industry/professional experience is highly desirable. Earned doctorate in organizational behavior or human resources from a recognized school of business is required.
This position is part of a major hiring initiative within the College of Business and Economics that is unprecedented in scope at Lehigh University (www.lehigh.edu). The faculty recruitment plan includes the addition of 12 new faculty positions this year across all departments and at various levels of seniority. New university leadership that includes President Alice Gast, formerly from MIT, incoming Dean Paul Brown from NYU/Stern and Provost Mohamed El-Aasser is fully committed to this effort.
