ABOUT THE POSITION
Research will be a strong focus of the selected candidate, who is expected to contribute to the vibrant research community at IESEG through a commitment to research excellence. Applicants for the position of Assistant Professor should hold a PhD (or be close to obtaining it) and are expected to have the potential to secure publications in top-tier refereed journals in the near future. For an appointment at the Associate level, applicants are required to (a) hold a PhD and have a strong publication record in top-tier refereed journals and evidence of research impact; (b) good networks in academia; and (c) grant application ability.
In terms of teaching, the selected candidate will teach courses in strategic management/strategy at the undergraduate, graduate and/or postgraduate level. In addition, the selected candidate will contribute to the development of the Department’s programs. As such, we are looking for candidates with strong teaching skills, and who are fluent in English, as most courses are taught in this language. For an appointment at the Associate level, applicants are required to have extensive higher education teaching experience. Teaching activities might be partly split between the two campuses.
Although not required, active working knowledge of French is considered an asset. For this position, the ability and willingness to interact with managers and the local (and international) ecosystems are indeed valued.
Finally, we are looking for candidates who embody our core values of Accomplishment, Responsibility, Integrity, Solidarity, and Engagement, and fit our diverse and international culture in which 50 nationalities are represented. IÉSEG places tremendous value on diversity and inclusion, and we therefore encourage applications from all backgrounds. Underrepresented groups in academia (notably women, minority ethnic groups, people identifying as LGBTQIA+, people with a (non-)visible disability, and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds and/or economically developing countries) are particularly encouraged to apply, as we are highly committed to ensuring that IÉSEG reflects and benefits from the diversity present in society.
