Why Major in BOS? 

A major in Business, Organizations, and Society is for anyone who seeks a better understanding of our increasingly commercialized world.  It is thus appropriate for those who aspire to careers in management, marketing, accounting, and finance as well as those fascinated by the engagement of business with the larger social, political, cultural, and technological issues of our time. 

Open Positions

 

POSITION: The Department of Business, Organizations and Society (BOS) at Franklin & Marshall College invites applications for a tenure-track position in the general category of International Business starting July 1, 2018. Appointment will be at the Instructor or Assistant Professor rank, depending on qualifications.

QUALIFICATIONS: Preferred applicants should possess, or be close to completing, a doctorate in International Business, Management/Strategy or Marketing (with a focus on international issues) or in a closely related discipline, such as Economics or Political Science. We especially seek faculty interested in teaching in a selective liberal arts college.

JOB RESPONSIBILITY: Franklin & Marshall College is committed to high quality teaching and research in a liberal arts environment.  The teaching load is 3/2 and includes courses in (1) international business and (2) strategy or another organizational-focused field. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience teaching international business and/or strategy at the college level. Applicants should also be prepared to teach courses in Connections, the College’s general education program. Applicants should have research goals that involve publication in highly competitive, peer-reviewed journals.

THE COLLEGE: Franklin & Marshall College is a small (2,400 undergraduates) highly selective, residential liberal arts college with a fully integrated business program. The BOS Department (http://www.fandm.edu/business) expects high quality teaching and research, and offers a collegial and supportive environment.

APPLICATION: Applicants must  submit a formal letter of application, statement of research philosophy, statement of teaching philosophy, transcripts, official teaching evaluations, a current curriculum vitae, and arrange for three letters of recommendation from individuals who can attest to how your teaching and research fits with F&M’s and the BOS department’s mission. All documents must be submitted through Interfolio at  http://apply.interfolio.com/47479.  Pursuant to cultivating an inclusive college community, the search committee will holistically assess the qualifications of each applicant. We will consider an individual’s record working with students and colleagues with diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds. We will also consider experience overcoming or helping others overcome barriers to academic success, and candidates are invited to address this in their cover letter and/or teaching statement.

OPTIONAL CONSIDERATION FOR SUPPLEMENTAL APPOINTMENT AT F&M:

The person selected for this tenure track position may also be considered for a supplemental appointment as a Franklin & Marshall High Impact Emerging Scholar (HIES).  These are scholars who possess outstanding promise for inspiring and supporting the educational development of underrepresented minority students in a higher educational setting such as F&M.  High Impact Emerging Scholars demonstrate similarly high promise for positively impacting the campus’ organizational and academic culture to make it more inclusive of, and responsive to, underrepresented minority students.  Selected finalists that meet these additional qualifications, in addition to those outlined in this ad, may be nominated by the department as a HIES.  If selected, the person will receive a two-year appointment (additional to the tenure track appointment) that begins as soon as the person joins the campus on a tenure track.  The HIES program supports the acceleration of one’s research trajectory with a significantly reduced teaching load for two years along with supportive mentoring to advance the scholar’s research and professional development.  Candidates interested in being considered for nomination should indicate their interest in this optional program in their cover letter and highlight any previous work in this area.

CONTACT INFORMATION:

For full consideration applications should be complete by February 2, 2018. For additional information, please contact Dr. Bryan Stinchfield, Department Chair, at bryan.stinchfield@fandm.edu.
