The mission of the Yale School of Management (Yale SOM) is educating leaders for business and society. The school’s students, faculty, and alumni are committed to understanding the complex forces transforming global markets and using that understanding to build organizations— in the for-profit, nonprofit, and government sectors—that contribute lasting value to society.
Yale SOM is seeking applications for the Sheila and Ron ’92 Marcelo Lectureship in Social Entrepreneurship. This is a full-time, non-ladder track faculty position at Yale SOM, which may begin as early as the 2018-19 academic year (starts on July 1, 2018). Rank, salary, and term length will depend on the experience and education of the candidate, according to the requirements outlined in Yale University’s Faculty Handbook. Most applicants will be eligible for appointment to the rank of Lecturer with a three year appointment.
The primary responsibilities for the Marcelo Lecturer are teaching graduate-level courses and engaging in scholarship related to social entrepreneurship. Secondary responsibilities include advising student entrepreneurs outside the classroom; assisting with and advising entrepreneurship-related programs across the university; engaging alumni working in social entrepreneurship; contributing to development activities related to entrepreneurship; and promoting social entrepreneurship at the School of Management.
Within Yale SOM, the Marcelo Lecturer would collaborate closely with the Program on Social Enterprise and the Center for Business and the Environment (a joint center with the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies). Outside of SOM, the Marcelo Lecturer will liaise with several initiatives, including the Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale, the forthcoming Yale Law School Entrepreneurship clinic, the Center for Biomedical Innovation and Technology, the Center for Business and the Environment, Innovate Health Yale, Dwight Hall, and the Office of Cooperative Research.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate a track record of excellence in each of the following three domains: entrepreneurship practice (or investing), teaching, and scholarship. Though, a track record in two of the three is sufficient for consideration. A minimum of a bachelor’s degree is required, but a PhD in a related field is preferred.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a teaching statement, and a research statement (if applicable), as well as contact information for at least three letters of reference. References will not be contacted until the final candidates have been selected and those candidates will be notified prior to references being contacted. Applicants with university-level teaching experience should provide syllabi and teaching evaluations for a representative sample of courses taught.
Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the position has been filled. Only complete applications will be considered.
