The Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University is seeking applications for a tenure-track position in the Strategy and Business Economics group to begin August 2022. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in strategic management or closely related field from an AACSB accredited university.

We seek candidates with strong training in empirical methods, like econometrics, and the ability to publish in top strategy journals. Preference will be given to candidates with secondary training in economics and additional research interests in the areas of innovation, technology management, entrepreneurship and / or health care. Teaching experience in strategic management is also a plus.
