Associate Dean for Research and Faculty The Joseph M.
Bryan School of Business & Economics at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) invites nominations, expressions of interest, and applications for the position of Associate Dean for Research and Faculty.
The preferred starting date is August 1, 2019, although an earlier start date may be considered.
The selected candidate shall have three primary tasks: increase the dollar volume and engagement in externally funded research; lead a variety of faculty-focused processes, such as professional development, annual and post-tenure review, and promotion and tenure; and maintain a level of personal research productivity leading to scholarly publication.
The Associate Dean reports to the Dean of the Bryan School and shall be a key member of the Schools leadership team.
S/he shall serve alongside the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Budgeting, the Assistant Dean for External Affairs, the academic department heads, the Director of Assessment and Reporting, the chief budget officer of the School, the Deans Executive Assistant, and the chair of the Faculty Executive Committee.
S/he also serves as the Schools representative on the Research Advisory Council for the Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement.
One employee in the Office of Research, trained in both pre- and post-award processes and management, will work primarily for the Associate Dean, and there will be a strong tie to the faculty director of the Center for Industry Research and Engagement (CIRE), which focuses primarily on industry contract research, and the director of Research for the North Carolina Sales Institute with respect to funded research.
There is also a tie to the academic departments, not only because that is where faculty members reside and research occurs, but because post-award grant management occurs primarily at the department level.
Applicants must hold a PhD/DBA degree and be tenurable at the associate professor or professor level.
The discipline must be able to tie in some way to the business school.
Framed so broadly, we expect and encourage applicants from a variety of Engineering areas (Industrial Engineering/Operations Research, Engineering Management, Systems Engineering, Computer Engineering, etc.), Arts & Sciences areas (e.g., Computer Science, Statistics, Psychology, Sociology, and Economics), Apparel Studies/Merchandising, Hospitality & Tourism, plus traditional business disciplines such as Business Economics, Information Systems, and Operations/Supply Chain Management, among others.
What shall be key is ones record of success as a PI in attracting government funding (primarily) or possibly as a faculty director or dean of research who has had substantial success building a strong, externally funded, research operation.
Those serving in program director roles at federal agencies may be attractive candidates, depending on other qualifications.
Additionally, competitive candidates will have a record of scholarly publications in leading journals.
Procedure for Candidacy Applications should include a letter of application and curriculum vitae.
Applications and nominations will be accepted until the position is filled.
Confidential review of materials and screening of candidates will begin immediately.
