Department Chair of Supply Chain Management profile

The Department of Supply Chain Management (SCM) in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University seeks to hire a new department chairperson to start in August 2019. Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in Business Administration with an emphasis in the areas of Supply Chain Management, (e.g., Logistics, Operations, Sourcing) or related disciplines that intersect with SCM, and should have an academic/professional record consistent with an appointment to full professor with tenure. 

Ranked #1 in US News and World Report, the Supply Chain Management Department (http://supplychain.broad.msu.edu/) is the home of internationally recognized faculty who are among the most accomplished scholars and teachers. The department offers a Bachelor’s degree in Supply Chain Management, an MS in Supply Chain Management, and Ph.D’s in both Logistics Management, and Operations & Sourcing Management. The department contributes heavily to the Executive and Full-time MBA programs, online certificate programs, and is very active in executive education programs.

A department chairperson at Michigan State University represents the department within the College and the University and external constituencies. The chairperson is part of the college’s leadership team and is also responsible for department’s faculty and staff recruiting, development and retention, resource attainment, financial management, and stakeholder relationship management. The chairperson manages a diverse faculty, staff and student body, and should lead a department strong in scholarship, teaching capacity, and outreach. 

MSU’s SCM department is known for its integrated end-to-end perspective on supply chain and we are looking for candidates who will perpetuate this view.  In addition, we are looking for candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our faculty (deep expertise in logistics, operations, and sourcing).  Tenure-track faculty include: Y. Bolumole, A. Choo, D. Closs, S. Griffis, M. Li, S. Melnyk, J. Miller, A. Nair, S. Narayanan, S. Peinkofer, C. Rosales, T. Schoenherr, M. Schwieterman, Talluri, S. Vickery, and J. Whipple.  

In addition to a research record to support appointment at full professor, candidates should have demonstrated collegial program leadership, faculty development, college and university fundraising, and financial management.  

Founded in 1855, Michigan State University (msu.edu) has always been an innovator in research, teaching, and application of knowledge. In 1863, Michigan State was designated the beneficiary of the Morrill Land-Grant Colleges Act endowment, becoming the pioneer land-grant college in the United States and serving as a prototype for future institutions. From these origins, Michigan State has evolved into a comprehensive, global, world-class university with a full spectrum of programs and attracting a diverse set of gifted professors, staff members, and students. The University has been an elected member of the Association of American Universities since 1964.

The University offers more than 200 programs of study at the bachelor, masters and doctoral levels. MSU is guided by “Bolder by Design” (bolderbydesign.msu.edu) as a “shared strategic framework that aligns our efforts across Michigan State University and around the globe, harnessing the power of working together to achieve our highest aspirations and to fuel the creation of better outcomes and growing value for our students, state, nation, and world.”
