Clarkson University’s David D. Reh School of Business invites applications for an endowed Chair/Professorship in Entrepreneurial Leadership (open until filled). We seek an intellectual leader who will anchor our nationally ranked entrepreneurship and innovation (E&I) program. We expect that this endowed chair will build and promote high-impact scholarship and educational programs in entrepreneurship and innovation, cultivate entrepreneurial culture and mindset and advance understanding of entrepreneurship as an engine of economic prosperity and progress. In this role, he or she will work collaboratively with students, faculty, staff and alumni and other stakeholders within a dynamic innovation ecosystem. This person will also collaborate with our partner universities in the region and around the world to develop leaders with a global perspective to benefit business and society.
To accomplish this, we are seeking a prominent scholar committed to educating the next generation of Clarkson entrepreneurial leaders, contributing to academic and practitioner research on entrepreneurship, and fostering experiential knowledge through curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular programs. We specifically welcome candidates with a focus on entrepreneurial leadership; however, candidates from other academic disciplines with a similar focus will be considered. The ideal candidate for the endowed chair would have a demonstrated record of scholarship, teaching and service at the rank of full professor. Candidates with tenurable record of scholarship, teaching and service at the rank of associate professor would be considered for the endowed professorship. We invite applications from candidates with an earned doctorate in a relevant field and demonstrated evidence of intellectual leadership with a publication record in top-tier journals.
Clarkson fosters an active environment for entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, social enterprise, and innovation. Our unique innovation ecosystem draws expertise and resources from various entities, including the Shipley Center for Innovation and our new Innovation Hub – an interdisciplinary, collaborative laboratory and workspace, promoting innovation through information and knowledge exchange among students, faculty and other stakeholders across the university. The Hub is designed to spur ideation, problem solving and venture development.
This appointment is expected to be made at the tenured full or associate professor level. The successful candidate will be expected to teach entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship-related courses, contribute high-impact scholarship in entrepreneurship, and provide leadership in curriculum development. Salary and resource support are competitive and commensurate with rank and record of accomplishments.
