UC Santa Barbara’s Technology Management Program invites applications for a faculty position at the rank of assistant professor (tenure-track) or associate professor (with tenure). The appointment will be effective July 1, 2019, and the candidate is expected to be in residence beginning fall quarter, 2019. The successful candidate will complement a growing faculty engaged in cutting-edge research and teaching at the intersection of social and technological systems.

The Technology Management Program, which offers Masters’ and Ph.D. degrees and undergraduate and graduate certificates, resides within UC Santa Barbara’s College of Engineering. Applicants must possess a Ph.D. from a relevant field at time of appointment. We particularly welcome applications from people who have expertise in strategy and innovation or in teams. We also welcome applications from scholars who have expertise in any of the following areas: knowledge and learning; entrepreneurship; organizations and work; and science and technology studies. Interdisciplinary approaches to studying phenomena at any level of analysis are especially welcome. A record of securing external funding for research is desirable, especially for applications at the associate professor level.

Our core TMP faculty includes Stephen Barley, Matthew Beane, Ted Frech, Gary Hansen, Paul Leonardi, Kyle Lewis, Renee Rottner, and Bob York, whose research and teaching span management, engineering, and social sciences and reflect the unit’s intentional interdisciplinary character.
