GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY invites applications for multiple tenure track faculty positions (rank open and we expect to hire at the assistant, associate and/or full professor levels) effective fall semester 2011. These positions require an earned doctorate from an AACSB-accredited institution or similarly accredited international institution. Successful applicants will have strong research and teaching capabilities in international business and related areas. Candidates at the assistant professor level should demonstrate a high potential for publications in the leading scholarly journals. Candidates at the associate and full professor levels should have an excellent research and teaching record primarily in international business including a strong and current publication record in the leading scholarly journals, an international reputation, and a demonstrated ability to develop and work with others in defining and conducting meaningful research and mentoring junior faculty. Exceptional candidates who are eminent scholars with international reputations may also be considered for appointment to a chair or professorship. These positions will enhance the research capability of the Institute of International Business (IIB) which was recently designated as a national resource center in international business (CIBER) by the U.S. Department of Education. Senior scholars hired for these positions will play leadership roles in the IIB and in our newly established CIBER. Although the interests and activities of IIB and our CIBER are broad, and each of these scholars will bring a different combination of strengths to the portfolio we are seeking to enhance with these hires, one senior position is designated for a China Business Scholar. Partially funded by the University’s Second Century Initiative, this position will further strengthen the interdisciplinary focus on Chinese studies at Georgia State University.
