The Department of Information Technology and Decision Sciences (ITDS) is comprised of two academic disciplines, Information Systems and Management Science. The ITDS department has 29 full-time research and teaching faculty whose mission is to conduct cutting edge research and prepare the next generation of information systems, management science, and business analytics professionals. Our department offers degrees at the bachelors, masters, and PhD levels. Five of our degrees are STEM-designated – BS and MS in Information Systems and BBA, MBA, and MS in Business Analytics. ITDS has a long track record of producing well-prepared, motivated, and successful business professionals and academicians. The department has been growing rapidly the past few years in faculty, majors, and overall enrollments.
The Information Technology & Decision Sciences (ITDS) Department in the G. Brint Ryan College of Business at the University of North Texas, a Carnegie R1 university, seeks an individual for a clinical faculty position in Decision Sciences, Management Science, Business Analytics, and/or Information Systems (DS/MS/BA/IS) with the ability and experience to teach and develop undergraduate and graduate DS/MS/BA/IS courses, make quality intellectual contributions in those or closely related fields independently and with faculty colleagues and/or doctoral students, advise and mentor students, and render service to the department, college, university, and profession commensurate with their rank. We anticipate several Clinical Assistant Professor openings in the Fall of 2022. As openings arise, we will actively source candidates from this applicant pool.
An offer of employment for this position will be made dependent upon available funding.
The successful candidate must have a PhD in Decision Sciences, Management Science, Business Analytics, and/or Information Systems (DS/MS/BA/IS) or a closely related field and three or more years of management and/or consulting experience in a closely-related field.
Associate rank requires at least five years of experience as a Clinical Professor.
Strong preference for a proven teacher with experience teaching undergraduate and graduate DS/MS/BA/IS courses and discipline-specific managerial experience. Also one with experience developing courses, curriculum, and/or teaching cases, and who is also able and willing to assist students with career guidance and helping us nurture, expand, and improve our relations with industry. A proven record of research or other discipline-specific intellectual contributions is also desired, since productivity in this area is part of annual evaluations; therefore, preference is for a candidate proven to be capable of and interested in conducting discipline-related research independently or with colleagues and/or doctoral students. Great teaching, relevant intellectual contributions, and germane practical experience are key, but a track record developing, expanding, and improving relations with organizations that intern students and/or hire college graduates is also important. PhD awarded from an AASCB-accredited or similarly accredited institution is a plus.
