The School of Design at Syracuse University is now seeking applicants in the field of design thinking and psychology of human interaction. This recruitment is part of an ambitious Invest Syracuse Cluster Hire Initiative in the broad area of innovation and entrepreneurship. As an integral part of this investment, Syracuse University will recruit multiple candidates for faculty positions for a research cluster in the focus area of innovation and entrepreneurship. Faculty hired into these positions will build on our existing strengths in the focus area and will participate in an organized research cluster that spans the School of Design, the College of Engineering and Computer Science, the Martin J. Whitman School of Management, the School of Information Studies, and the University Libraries.
The School of Design has positioned its self at the heart of the campus wide entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem. As the lead partner in securing the Blackstone Launchpad, the School also recently successfully led a campus wide initiative to secure the five- person collaborative cluster focused in the area of Innovation and Entrepreneurship described above.
The successful candidate will, by definition, be a part of the School faculty team while at the same time being part of a campus wide cluster that supports research and practice in innovation and entrepreneurship.
