The Work and Organization Studies (WOS) group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan School has openings for tenure track faculty members to start July 1, 2023, or soon thereafter, as possible, whose teaching and research focus on work, employment, and organizational issues. The rank is open and both junior and senior candidates at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Full Professor levels will be considered.
Faculty responsibilities include teaching courses and conducting research related to Work and Organization Studies. WOS has current teaching needs in courses on organizational processes, power and influence, as well as courses on work and employment issues.
WOS builds on the traditions of Organization Studies and the Institute for Work and Employment Research and has Ph.D. programs in both areas. The WOS faculty is interdisciplinary.
At the Assistant Professor level, candidates must possess, or be close to completion of, a Ph.D. in a field related to Work and Organization Studies, such as Sociology, Organizational Behavior, Industrial Relations, Social Psychology, Political Science, or Economics, at the start of employment. At the Associate Professor and Full Professor levels, a Ph.D. and demonstrated research experience is required.
WOS Research styles may include quantitative, ethnographic, field based, and/or lab based. (For more information about our group, go to: https://mitsloan.mit.edu/faculty/academic-groups/work-and-organization-studies/about-us).
The WOS group is part of the Behavioral and Policy Sciences Area, one of three major academic areas at Sloan. We encourage multidisciplinary work with colleagues in other parts of the School, and several members of the group are also members of other groups/units in the School (Communication; Economic Sociology; Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Strategy Management; System Dynamics; Global Economics and Management; and Information Technology).
