Careers at BITSoM

FACULTY POSITIONS

We are building a world class business school out of Mumbai under the aegis of BITS Pilani, an institute of national eminence recognised by the Government of India. We are looking to build a culture that is deeply student centric, and fosters an academic environment that is characterised by psychological safety, freedom, and intellectual curiosity.

We are looking to hire core faculty across disciplines. We are looking for Assistant/Associate/Full Professors in research or teaching track in the following areas:

  • - Finance
  • - Digital and Analytics
  • - Operations and Supply Chain
  • - Strategy
  • - Marketing
  • - OB and HR

Faculty who join us today will not only be outstanding academics with exceptional teaching and research credentials, but also be energetic idealists who are excited by the ability to shape an institution.

If you are passionate about connecting with students both inside and outside the classroom, committed to research that is rigorous, meets the highest global standards, and can impact practice, then BITSoM could well be the opportunity of a lifetime.

We are looking for faculty across the following three tracks.

RESEARCH TRACK

We are looking for outstanding researchers who are also strong teachers. For researchers, we are looking at:

  • • Faculty who has published in FT 50/UT Dallas journal list/A* journals in their field.
  • • A PhD from a leading international/national university, teaching experience at top institutes with consistently good feedback is necessary.
  • • Fresh PhDs with an outstanding record, a strong thesis, and papers under advanced review at top journals will also be considered.


TEACHING TRACK

We are looking at outstanding teachers with significant work experience

  • A PhD from a leading international/national university, teaching experience at top institutes with outstanding feedback is necessary. (Typically, we are looking at faculty who are among the top 10% of teachers at institutes of national stature).
  • A track record as a successful case writer (Ivey/Harvard)/articles in popular vehicles is desirable.
  • Experience of delivering senior level executive education with outstanding feedback is desirable.
  • 5 plus years corporate work experience in middle to senior level leadership positions is a plus (albeit not mandatory)


PRACTICE PROFESSORS

Senior corporate leaders (CXO/CEO/entrepreneur) with a high market reputation and track record. A Master’s degree from a leading national/international institution is necessary. A PhD is desirable but not mandatory.

We are looking for accomplished leaders with a passion for teaching. Track record as a visiting faculty with top institutes is desirable. Experience of having handled global leadership roles is desirable.

Other Expectations

We are looking for faculty who are passionate about connecting with students both outside and inside the classroom. Student centricity will be a core differentiator at BITSoM and academics who value this deeply should apply.

We also aspire to be highly industry integrated, and the desire to stay connected and abreast with the latest industry practice is something we will value in our faculty.

WHAT CAN WE OFFER?

Our compensation package will be competitive relative to the top b-schools in the country.

Each faculty member will have dedicated RA support (one RA per faculty member), a generous annual research grant, and a course specific academic associate for every course taught.

Currently, most of the courses at BITSoM are taught by some of the best faculty from across the world. Our faculty will have a chance to interact with and learn from our global faculty. This will imply strong opportunities in terms of pedagogical excellence, subject currency, and potential research partnerships.

We follow a block teaching methodology, with a thirty-hour course being taught in an intense and focused two-week module (Students take only two courses at a time). This implies that faculty can chunk their teaching responsibilities and can have significant periods of time focused on research.

HOW TO APPLY?

You will need to submit:

  • • A cover letter, summarising position applied for, your credentials and the reasons for your interest in a faculty position. (Fresh PhDs should apply for an Assistant Professor position, otherwise for any position, you would be required to be at the same position in your current institute)
  • • An updated resume
  • • Links to research paper in the resume (or digital copies)
  • • Names of at least two references within the CV.
