It is expected that the chair will foster a healthy and collegial environment for the department as a whole—students, faculty and staff. Teaching duties at a reduced load of one course per semester will include upper-level courses in the area of specialization, graduate seminars, and survey classes for undergraduates. Our program places strong emphasis on object-based teaching and engagement with museological practices and history, with much of the instruction taking place in the galleries and classrooms of the Cleveland Museum of Art. A grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, awarded jointly to the University and the Museum, supports a re-envisioned doctoral program, emphasizing academic and curatorial preparation in art history. Building on this, Joseph and Nancy Keithley have committed to a $15 million bequest jointly to the two institutions to support the creation of the Keithley Insitute for Art History. In consultation with departmental faculty and in partnership with colleagues at the Museum, the successful candidate will develop a strategic plan to implement the goals of this Institute and extend its vision. The new chair will also serve as the primary liaison to the Cleveland Museum of Art in administering the joint graduate programs. For more information about the department and the Museum, visit http://arthistory.case.edu and http://www.clevelandart.org.

The position’s responsibility includes a 6-course teaching-equivalent load, of which at least two courses will be in the DM program plus two other graduate and/or undergraduate courses for the School in addition to doctoral faculty responsibilities that include supervising DM student doctoral theses and providing service to the DM program administration. The position comes with the expectation that the candidate will devote significant effort in enhancing the visibility and quality of DM practitioner- scholar research. Experience working with faculty in other disciplines across a research university as well as expertise and skill teaching diverse experienced professionals are highly valued.

The ideal candidate will be a dynamic educator, networking professional and practitioner-scholar who is willing to assume a leadership role in enhancing the reputation of the Weatherhead School as a center of practitioner-scholar education. An ideal candidate should have a proven record of accomplishment in high-impact practitioner-scholar research and teaching ability that spans DM program topics and cut across the School’s cross-disciplinary interests.

A Ph.D. or equivalent is expected. Experience in doctoral-level teaching is required with focus on qualitative and/or quantitative methods. Success in guiding and advising doctoral research that reflects engaged and practitioner oriented scholarship is expected, and preferred. The level of appointment and compensation for the position will be commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and the length and type of experience in the relevant areas.

The application process starts immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

The Weatherhead School of Management’s Doctor of Management program is at the forefront of practitioner-scholar doctoral education. It is based on the assumption that business leadership is increasingly required to integrate multiple sources of knowledge, understand the perceptions of diverse parties and put human values into action. To do so executives are challenged to create social, intellectual and economic value for their organizations and for society at large based on rigorous and sound evidence and scholarly reasoning. Recognizing these challenges, the Weatherhead School of Management has offered for two decades two doctorate degrees in management for working professionals: the Doctor of Management (DM) and the Designing Sustainable Systems track in the PhD in management.

The DM Program is a three-year lockstep program with an option to pursue the Designing Sustainable Systems track in the PhD in management. The DM offers an extraordinary learning opportunity for senior professionals who seek to conduct rigorous study on compelling issues of management practice and who want to advance principles of evidence-based management through acquired research skills. This transdisciplinary program integrates multiple theoretical frameworks and approaches, following a mixed method approach, to reach an understanding of business and societal problems. During the three-year program, students learn to rigorously apply in a mixed method format both qualitative and quantitative research methods through a theory-generating and -validating cycle, thereby acquiring an extensive set of techniques and models for bridging traditional research and real-world evidence to address identified challenging topics in different management fields. DM students’ research projects are evaluated by a faculty review committee over the course of the program at critical research milestones.

The DM program strives for academic excellence.  Therefore students are required to prepare and submit their research papers to appropriate high-quality academic conferences and journals for review and presentation.
