Faculty Position in Work and Organization Studies
The Work and Organization Studies (WOS) group at the MIT Sloan School is seeking to hire an individual whose research focuses on work and employment issues. The rank of this position is open and both junior and senior candidates will be considered. Candidates must have their PhD at the time of their appointment.
WOS is a new group that merges two former groups at Sloan, the Organizational Studies Group and the Institute for Work and Employment Research. As such the WOS faculty is interdisciplinary and the new hire’s background is open and might include sociology, organizational behavior, political science, or economics. We are open to a variety of styles of research (quantitative, ethnographic, field based) but we do expect that the new hire would approach work and employmentissues from what might be termed a “macro” or “structural” point of view. Our group also contains strong social psychologists and candidates with that background are encouraged to consider our other position announcement in leadership.
WOS is part of the Behavioral and Policy Sciences Area, one of three major areas at Sloan. We encourage multidisciplinary work with colleagues in other parts of the School, and several members of the group are also members of other groups in the School (Communication, Economic Sociology, Information Technology, Strategy, System Dynamics).
WOS has teaching needs in negotiations and it would be desirable (although not essential) if the candidate could teach in this area. It is expected that the candidate be prepared to teach at all levels: MBA, executive, PhD, and undergraduate.
Please submit applications electronically at https://sloanfacultysearches.mit.edu/wos/ providing a cover letter outlining interests and experience, a current CV, and one or two papers that indicate your research focus and capabilities. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted via this link. Applications are due November 9, 2013
