    OVERVIEW: The Wake Forest University School of Business is seeking qualified senior candidates for a Fall 2014 tenured faculty appointment in finance with an expectation to provide leadership of finance faculty and teach in our undergraduate and in our graduate business programs. The candidate should have a successful record of prior and ongoing research. The position carries a twelve-month-per-year administrative appointment and offers a highly competitive package of compensation and benefits. An endowed title is available for an extraordinarily credentialed candidate. JOB QUALIFICATIONS: The School of Business places high value on excellence in teaching and research. Credentials and experience appropriate to full-professor rank at the School of Business are a requirement. The ideal candidate will be an individual with a track record of leadership, who possesses strong people skills and has managed in a dynamic environment. Since the Area Chair is expected to mentor and work with approximately ten faculty members in the finance area, the candidate should have experience in collaborating with and nurturing faculty colleagues. This individual should demonstrate an interest in taking an active role in curricular development and in coordinating within the discipline and collaborating across disciplines within the school. The candidate must have a robust commitment to teaching excellence, the desire to work with multiple stakeholders (students, alumni, recruiters, and administration), and an outstanding record of research accomplishments. With a focus on educating the whole person, our faculty members actively engage our students in their growth as emerging professionals, facilitating their acquisition of deep conceptual knowledge while helping them to attain a broad set of professional competencies and to develop a clear sense of professional identity and character. We seek colleagues who subscribe to this holistic education of our students, are willing to serve as exemplary role-models, and are committed to developing courses that span all three of these areas of student development. Because we are preparing our students to succeed and to flourish in a professional marketplace, we seek to hire colleagues who understand this marketplace and who desire to be deeply connected to it on a continuing basis. Also, we believe that our students learn best when taught in an integrative fashion, across the curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular elements of their programs. To deliver impactful and unified learning experiences, strong collaboration of faculty and professional staff is required. Thus, we seek colleagues who are eager to work in a collaborative team environment. In addition to leading our educational efforts, our faculty members are committed to supporting our students as they prepare to embark on fulfilling career trajectories. Our faculty members produce original thought leadership that is visible and positively impacts the practice of business. As a community of teacher-scholars, we systematically and rigorously seek answers to questions of high theoretical, practical, and pedagogical importance. We expect that all of our faculty colleagues will be actively engaged in the generation of thought leadership that aims to further the reputation of our school by producing: • discipline-based intellectual contributions that are valued by thought leaders in the academy; • practice-based intellectual contributions that have significant impact on organizations and are valued by thought leaders in the marketplace; • pedagogical intellectual contributions that explore the application of our educational framework and are valued by thought leaders in the academy.
