    Position Information (PDF)

    Position: Associate or Assistant Professor in Social Entrepreneurship
    Institution:
    Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State UniversityFisher
    Location: Columbus, Ohio

    The Department of Management and Human Resources in the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University is seeking applicants for a faculty appointment in Strategic Management with interests and expertise in the area of Social Entrepreneurship. This will be a full-time, tenure track appointment, to begin autumn semester 2018 with research, teaching, and service responsibilities.

    The ideal candidate will conduct impactful research in the area of social entrepreneurship with an emphasis on fostering innovations that improve food security. Social entrepreneurship emphasizes efforts to maximize social benefits subject to business’ rules and government constraints.

Applying theory and evidence from social entrepreneurship promises to help society achieve equitable and sustainable food production, distribution and access, particularly in disadvantaged communities. Preferred qualifications include evidence of involvement in successful interdisciplinary research teams and experience mentoring members of underrepresented groups.

The successful candidate will be part of a highly collaborative trans-disciplinary community of scholars and external partners working toward transformational solutions to sustainable and resilient food security. The successful candidate will initiate new transformative research, education and outreach with colleagues across campus and thus strengthen the university’s impact on resilient and sustainable food security. While teaching activities will be in the Fisher College of Business programs, candidates will be expected to perform cross-disciplinary research and activities.
