    The Department of Management at the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin is hiring tenure-track faculty members to join our department in the fall of 2021. We have two positions available at the Assistant Professor or Associate Professor level, and we welcome applications from PhD students and current faculty members in the areas of strategic management, innovation/entrepreneurship, or organization theory.

    The Department of Management is housed within the McCombs School of Business, a top ranked school in the UT-Dallas Business School Research Rankings. The department provides excellent research support through its strong PhD program, other graduate and undergraduate assistants, and extensive research funding. The department is home to three thriving centers: The Center for Leadership and Ethics, the Herb Kelleher Center for Entrepreneurship, and the Jon Brumley Texas Venture Labs. In addition, the department runs the school's one-year Master of Science in Technology Commercialization (MSTC) Program.
