The Department of Management in the Pamplin College of Business at Virginia
Tech is seeking applicants to fill a tenure track faculty position in
Entrepreneurship at a rank to be determined depending upon the
qualifications of the candidate. Potential applicants for all ranks are
encouraged to apply.


Candidates should have: (1) a doctorate in Management or a related field (or
be  in the final stages of completing such a doctorate) with a
specialization in Entrepreneurship from an AACSB accredited school , (2) a
strong program of scholarly research consistent with the rank applied for,
and (3) instructional capabilities at the undergraduate, MBA and doctoral
levels. In addition to having a demonstrated commitment to excellence in
research and teaching in entrepreneurship, the preferred candidate would
have a strong secondary research and teaching interest in strategy, or
related management field. 


The Department of Management consists of 17 full-time faculty members with
an impressive range of research and teaching expertise in macro- and micro-
areas of management. We encourage intellectual discussions that cut across
traditional research areas and both expect and support our faculty to
actively engage in high quality research that is publishable in top outlets.


The on-campus enrollment at the Pamplin College of Business is about 4,000
undergraduates and 300 full-time graduate students. Pamplin's undergraduate
program is ranked in the nation's 50 best business schools by U.S. News &
World Report. Pamplin ranks 42nd overall, which puts it in the top 10
percent of the 500-plus U.S. undergraduate programs accredited by the AASCB
and 25th among the public institutions. The Pamplin College ranks 25th among
U.S. institutions for number of business doctorates produced in 1996-2000,
based on data in AACSB's 2003 Doctoral Faculty Commission Report. Pamplin is
also moving aggressively into new MBA initiatives including an Executive MBA
program (located at its Falls Church campus in close proximity to Washington
D.C.) as well as a Professional MBA program (co-located in Richmond and
Roanoke, VA).
