Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Strategy Unit at Harvard Business School is seeking outstanding candidates for tenure-track positions at the assistant and (non-tenured) associate levels. Assistant professors should have a minimum of two years of experience as faculty at a business school or an economics department.

We invite applications from experienced candidates who focus on applied microeconomic research on firms, their interactions, organizations, and markets.

Successful candidates should have a genuine interest in exploring the challenges faced by firms and managers in the real world. HBS offers faculty the opportunity to interact with managers and business leaders. We are looking for candidates willing to embrace the opportunity to have their research inspired from these interactions, and who are motivated to produce research that has a real impact on scholars as well as on practicing managers.

Faculty in the Strategy Unit have backgrounds in economics (theory or empirics), business administration, sociology, management, and related fields. What brings the Unit together is an aspiration to become the world’s leading developer and disseminator of knowledge relevant to business strategists, through research rooted in practice and intensely engaging teaching.

With time, candidates are expected to become strong, effective teachers. We offer a range of case-based courses on topics such as: competitive and corporate strategy, global strategy, boundaries and organization of the firm, technology strategy, and the economics of competitive interactions. We encourage faculty to develop elective courses closely tied to their research agendas and to exploit complementarities between research and course development.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions or any other characteristic protected by law.

Please submit the following with your application: CV, Job Market Paper, and Cover Letter.
