Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth seeks a full professor of operations (or of a related field) who, thanks to a strong interest in execution on social goals, can fill the Tench Coxe Distinguished Professorship of Management.

Since the dawn of the industrial revolution, the manufacturing sector has achieved amazing increases in productivity. Concepts like scientific management, lean production, and six sigma have around the world transformed companies and their workers. Many of these same ideas have been successfully applied in the services sector. The resulting scientific operations coupled with information technology have improved quality, productivity, and work itself. However, many social institutions have not yet benefited from these advances. Social goals such as improving health, education, humanitarian care, and the environment remain elusive in part because of gaps in analytically sound management and execution.

The Tuck School seeks an accomplished scholar and teacher for the tenured position of the Tench Coxe Distinguished Professor of Management, a new professorship endowed thanks to the generosity of Tench Coxe, Dartmouth Class of 1980. The ideal candidate will have an active research program and international reputation in operations or in a related field, with a demonstrated keen interest in analyzing the efficient delivery of services in areas such as healthcare, government, and education. The position offers the rare opportunity to leverage both significant financial resources and the collaboration of like-minded faculty and staff across Dartmouth.

Dartmouth College and the Tuck School are committed to cross-disciplinary approaches to solving the great social problems we face, and the holder of this chair would be expected to work across the related disciplines at Dartmouth to maximize the impact of his or her work on improving execution on social goals.

Dartmouth College is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
