The Department of Business, Government & Society (BGS) at the University of Texas at Austin's McCombs School of Business invites applications for an assistant professor (tenure track) position in strategic corporate social responsibility/ESG effective September 1, 2022. The BGS department (https: // www. mccombs.utexas.edu/departments/BGS) teaches future leaders at all levels of McCombs' curriculum how to recognize and respond to the regulatory, legal, ethical and social expectations that businesses face. BGS aims to contribute to important public policy debates in these and related areas through research that applies social science research methods to relevant questions. A willingness to also engage with UT-Austin's recently launched Global Sustainability Leadership Institute (https: // www. mccombs.utexas.edu/Centers/GSLI), a partnership between the McCombs School and the Moody School of Communication, will be considered an asset.


The ideal candidate will possess a Ph.D. in economics, political science, sociology, or strategic management and be prepared to publish in top outlets and teach on CSR/ESG and non-market strategy. Additionally, candidates' research should focus on business at the organizational- (i.e., macro- or firm-) level and primarily apply rigorous quantitative methods to observational data.

Application Instructions

Interested parties should submit the following: 1) a cover letter that includes brief statements of research and teaching interests, 2) a CV, 3) any evidence of teaching and research effectiveness, and 4) three letters of recommendation. All applications submitted by Tuesday, November 23, 2021 will receive full consideration, although the search will continue until a suitable candidate is identified. UT-Austin uses Interfolio's Faculty Search. Applicants to this position receive a free Dossier account and can send all application materials free of charge.
