    The School of Business Administration at Portland State University seeks candidates for a tenure track position in real estate finance beginning September 16, 2015. Successful candidates will provide current evidence of an on-going research program. Candidates should also be able to develop and teach courses within PSU’s Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) program, as well as offer teaching in other the School of Business Administration programs. Demonstrated research interests, including publications in peer-reviewed journals or works in progress will be viewed as a plus

    Applicants should hold a doctoral degree in business, finance, or economics with an emphasis in real estate from an AACSB accredited institution. ABD candidates will be considered, but degree should be completed by September 1, 2015. Preference will be given to applicants whose research is complementary with, or augments that of, existing faculty and to those candidates with teaching experience.

    This position will play a vital role in the Center for Real Estate, a collaborative effort between the School of Business Administration and the School of Urban Studies and Planning. The Center hosts an annual conference that attracts 600-700 real estate professionals, produces a quarterly research publication, and involves industry professionals in student mentoring and classroom instruction. Currently the two Schools offer a Master degree in Real Estate Development, which graduated its first cohort of students in Fall, 2013. The University is hiring a third faculty to support this Master degree – complementing one position in the School of Business Administration and a second position in the School of Urban Studies and Planning.

    The School of Business Administration is AACSB-accredited and has a commitment to both research and teaching. The school’s active involvement with the region’s strong and growing entrepreneurial, sustainability-focused business base provides numerous opportunities for faculty to conduct research with the thriving footwear and apparel, renewable energy, high tech, ‘green’ building and food industries. We offer a stimulating, collegial environment that values a diversity of research approaches and topics, and supports research efforts through the provision of graduate assistantships, travel funds, summer support, and a teaching load conducive to effective scholarship. The school serves over 3,400 students, and grants more graduate degrees than any other university in Oregon. Portland is a thriving city of natural beauty located within an hour’s drive of mountains, forests, and the Oregon coast. Portland is consistently ranked as one of the “best places to live” in the U.S. The university is dispersed over 49 acres of green space amidst the cultural and business center of downtown Portland.

    We will interview candidates at the Financial Management Association meetings in Nashville, Tennessee in October, 2014. Review of applications will begin October 1, 2014. The search will continue until the position is filled.
