Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) invites applications for full-time faculty positions for its flagship school, the Suleman Dawood School of Business (SDSB).
SDSB currently has vacancies at various academic levels (Assistant, Associate and Full Professor) across a range of business disciplines: marketing, accounting and finance, econometrics, operations research, management sciences, entrepreneurship, technology and innovation management, strategy, business ethics, organisational behaviour and human resource management.
Applications are invited for full-time permanent (tenure track) or fixed-term contracts (1-3 years).
SDSB is recognised as the most prestigious business school in Pakistan and one of the leading management development institutions in the region, with particular strengths in case based teaching and high quality research of contextual relevance and international significance.
The School has well established academic programmes at the graduate (MBA, EMBA and PhD) and the undergraduate (BSc Accounting and Finance and Management Sciences) levels. It boasts a research active faculty, nearly 60 in number, who have published in highly ranked international journals, and are active in professional associations such as the Academy of Management, European Academy of Management, and INFORMS. SDSB’s practice portfolio includes a highly regarded executive development centre with a customised facility, which regularly draws top management teams from the leading corporations in the country.
The School’s current focus is on fostering strong research capabilities, increased teaching excellence and greater business engagement and internationalisation. The School is also currently working towards full accreditation by the AACSB.
Applicants at the Assistant Professor level must hold a PhD (in a relevant discipline) or be near completion (within 6-months), demonstrate their potential (R&R in high quality journals such as ranked as ABDC-A, ABS-3 and above) to produce international research, have a commitment to excellence in teaching (in English), good interpersonal skills and networking ability. Applicants for higher levels must, in addition, have a proven track record of publications in high-impact international journals and a demonstrated capacity to pursue research funding and develop and lead academic programmes.
Postgraduate teaching experience is preferable for Assistant Professors but essential for senior appointments. The successful applicant should be able to design and teach courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to supervise Master’s and PhD candidates.
