Chaired Faculty Position in Sustainability at INSEAD

INSEAD, the global business school with campuses in Europe (France), Asia (Singapore) and the Middle East (Abu Dhabi), has an opening for a Chaired Position in Sustainability.

We are looking for a mid-career or senior faculty member. The person should have a strong research agenda and a proven track record in sustainability. He or she is expected to develop both our research as well as our teaching activities on the broad subject of sustainability (MBA, EMBA, Executive Education, and PhD). Given that INSEAD is a Business School, it is expected that the chairperson will have a keen interest in sustainability issues with relevance to the business world, e.g., letting the research agenda be fed by business-relevant problems, as well as communicating research findings to the business community through publications, teaching and other forms of dissemination.

The expectation is that the person will join one of our academic areas (e.g. Technology and Operations Management, Strategy, Economics and Political Science) and perhaps teach in those while focusing research on sustainability. We are open about which academic area should host this chair.

INSEAD has already developed a solid knowledge base in sub-areas of sustainability given the strong interest from its business partners, alumni and current students. Faculty members broadly interested in sustainability are gathered in a research center in an effort to foster synergies and interdisciplinary work. The chairperson will be expected to play a central role in the further development of these initiatives.

For further information, please contact Professor Luk N. Van Wassenhove, Chair of the Search Committee at luk.van-wassenhove@insead.edu. Please send CV and other relevant materials before May 1st, 2012
