The Management Department at Niagara University invites applications for a full time, tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor rank, beginning in September 2019.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in Strategy or in Management with a background/specialty in Strategic Management, or an equivalent degree.

To support online options, a proven ability to teach in that format is strongly preferred. Candidates should demonstrate success or the potential for excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service. ABDs will be considered for tenure-track position, but Ph.D. conferral within a specified time frame will be required for continuing employment. Salary and benefits are AACSB competitive (3/3 teaching load and travel/faculty development support).
