The Graduate School of Leadership & Change is looking for two passionate academic-practitioners whose research and practice engages highly motivated learners in a robust cross-sectoral inquiry into the thorny issues of our time. We are open to a wide range of disciplinary fields with a privileged expertise to include, but not limited to, social innovation and entrepreneurship, sustainability, pro-inclusive and anti-racist leadership and change practices, and advocacy for the common good. Successful applicants will join our extraordinary team of interdisciplinary faculty focused on the mission to train emerging academic practitioners as public intellectuals active in their sectors and professions.
The school’s highly successful PhD in Leadership and Change enters its 21st year with over 300 alumni and 150 active learners, an 80% graduation rate, and a very diverse, productive and innovative team of faculty and students. The paradigm-shifting, low-residency, cohort-structured, competency-based (not course-based) doctoral program is aimed at experienced practitioners across a wide range of industries and professions. The program’s results-based curriculum combines face-to-face residencies (and will come back to them after the pandemic!) With virtual technologies uniquely designed to support a vibrant, geographically dispersed and networked learning community. Our model addresses the knowledge and capacities researchers need to encourage research that can have positive impacts on driving change for a sustainable future in organizations and communities around the world.
Successful applicants must have: a doctorate in a field related to our interdisciplinary program; an established record of research and practice equivalent to the level of full professor; solid experience in supporting doctoral students and supervising theses; experience in teaching a wide range of research methods; fluency and interest in the use of academic technologies for innovative teaching and learning; a keen spirit of academic experimentation and a belief in the power of education to “win victories for humanity”.
Main Responsibilities: Teach theories, research and practices of change management as well as a wide range of research methods; evaluate student work in an iterative and narrative format; advise, supervise doctoral students and chair theses; facilitate learning within a geographically dispersed student body; and collaborate with a highly committed interdisciplinary faculty team.
