AUSTRALIAN GRADUATE SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT (AGSM)

 

Faculty Positions in Strategic Management

 

 

AGSM seeks to fill at least one mid-level or senior faculty

position in Strategic Management and one junior level

position. Although we prefer to fill the senior position

at the Full Professor level we will also consider strong

candidates at the Associate Professor rank.

 

 

JOB QUALIFICATIONS:

 

Potential senior colleagues should possess a proven

capacity to publish their research in tier-1 refereed

journals, to provide leadership for junior faculty and

doctoral students in strategy, and to teach top-caliber

students in a leading business school. Junior scholars are

expected to have the potential to develop an effective

quality research program with a high likelihood and desire

to play on a global stage. Junior position applicants are

expected to have recently completed their PhD or to be in

the position to complete that degree by the time they take

up the position. Senior candidates must have earned a PhD

(or equivalent) and have an excellent publication record

and the potential to move into a leadership position in the

School.

 

 

ABOUT AGSM:

 

AGSM, located in Sydney with a program in Hong Kong, is the

premier business school in Australia, and a leader in

management research and graduate education throughout Asia

and Oceania. We offer a range of graduate programs,

including full-time MBA, executive MBA, corporate programs,

and a doctoral program. Forbes Magazine recently rated us

as the fifth best non-US business school in the world and

our Executive MBA program is rated by the Financial Times

as 31st in world which includes a research ranking of 28th

in the world. The AGSM's faculty is consistently recognized

internationally for its research excellence. Over the last

few years, we have published consistently in such leading

journals as Academy of Management Review, Strategic

Management Journal, Journal of International Business

Studies, Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization,

Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes,

Harvard Business Review, and California Management Review.

Current members of the strategy group include: Jeremy Davis

(MA Stanford), Timothy Devinney (PhD Chicago), Geoff

Eagleson (PhD Sydney), Shayne Gary (PhD London), Anna

Gunnthorsdottir (PhD Arizona), Dan Lovallo (PhD Berkeley),

J Peter Murmann (PhD Columbia), Thomas Powell (PhD NYU),

Geoff Waring (PhD UCLA), and Phil Yetton (PhD CMU).

 

 

FURTHER INFORMATION:

 

We have no dominant philosophical orientation and would

consider candidates for any position (junior or senior)

with strong training in economics, psychology, sociology,

strategy and other related disciplines. Candidates with a

less direct 'management' orientation with a desire to move

into management applications of basic disciplinary

approaches will also be considered.

 

The remuneration package is globally competitive and

teaching loads are very attractive for supporting research

productivity. Teaching loads generally offer the

opportunity to spend half the year in undisturbed research

activities, with the potential of a sabbatical after only

three years of employment.

 

 

ABOUT SYDNEY:

 

Sydney is recognized as one of the most livable, beautiful,

and vibrant cities on the planet. It plays a major part in

Australia's economy, accounting for over 25% of Australia's

total economic activity. The city is Australia's undisputed

financial centre, with 65% of Australia's finance industry

located here, including the Reserve Bank, the Australian

Stock Exchange and the Sydney Futures Exchange. The strong

economic mix encompasses services, manufacturing and mining

with financial, property and retail services together

accounting for over 80% of total economic output. Financial

workforce. Multinationals with Asian-Pacific headquarters

Coca-Cola Amatil, Compuserve, HJ Heinz, IBM, Microsoft,

Mastercard, Price Waterhouse Coopers, TNT Ltd and Unilever.

Of the nation's top 100 companies, 60% have headquarters in

Sydney. Sydney was also recently named by the LA Times as

the world's most innovative city with respect to culinary

arts and those with a penchant for wine, opera, sailing and

any of a host of other activities need look no further than

their front door.
