Organization Behavior, Organization Communication and Information Systems, Organization and Management Theory
The Work and Organization Studies (WOS) group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan School is seeking to hire a faculty member at the associate or full professor level to start July 1, 2020, or as soon thereafter as possible, whose teaching and research focus on communication and organizational issues. We are particularly interested in broad aspects of communication, including digital media and organizational communication.
Faculty responsibilities include teaching related to communication and organization studies and liaising with the Managerial Communication unit.
WOS is a relatively new group that merged two former groups at Sloan, the Organization Studies Group and the Institute for Work and Employment Research. As such the WOS faculty is interdisciplinary and the new hire's background is open and might include communication, sociology, organizational behavior, industrial relations, social psychology, political science, or economics. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in one of these, or another closely related field by the start of employment.
The WOS group is part of the Behavioral and Policy Sciences Area, one of three major academic areas at Sloan. We encourage multidisciplinary work with colleagues in other parts of the School, and several members of the group are also members of other groups in the School (Communication; Economic Sociology; Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Strategy Management; System Dynamics; Global Economics and Management; and Information Technology).
Please submit applications electronically at http://apply.interfolio.com/63035 providing a cover letter outlining interests and experience, a current CV, and one or two papers that indicate your research focus and capabilities. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted via Interfolio. Applications will be reviewed as received but are due no later than August 30, 2019.
