The chosen candidate will be expected to publish high quality and impactful scholarship in respected academic and/or practitioner journals.

As guided by our Academic Affairs Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Strategic Plan, Bentley University seeks to enhance our faculty capacity in the scholarship, pedagogy, and engagement related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.

While class sizes may vary, Law courses are generally capped at 35 students.

Bentley University leads higher education in the integration of global business with the arts and sciences, corporate social responsibility, and our legacy strengths in accounting and finance. We seek faculty and staff who represent diverse backgrounds, interests and talents — and have a commitment to high ethical standards and a willingness to embrace change. A supportive, team-oriented work environment promotes personal development and professional accomplishment. Bentley is an equal opportunity employer, building strength through diversity. Bentley University strives to create a campus community that welcomes the exchange of ideas, and fosters a culture that values differences and views them as a strength in our community.

Bentley University is an AACSB accredited institution that enrolls approximately 5,500 students at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels. Bloomberg ranks Bentley in the top 20 undergraduate business programs in the United States and U.S. News & World Report ranked Bentley as 6th in the Best Regional Universities-North category.
