Assistant/Associate Professor of Business Administration - Data Analytics

Washington and Lee University
Job Location:
Business Administration

Washington and Lee University's Department of Business Administration, part of the Williams School for Commerce, Economics, and Politics, invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor or associate professor (without tenure) position in data analytics beginning July 1, 2025. Candidates should be prepared to teach our required "Fundamentals of Business Statistics and Data Analysis" course and develop innovative electives in areas such as (but not limited to) sustainability analytics, ethics of data science, business intelligence, visual analytics, cultural and legal implications of digital technology, machine learning, AI, and/or data-driven storytelling. We welcome candidates with expertise in a wide variety of domains.

To achieve our mission as a liberal arts university, we strive to foster an inclusive campus community that recognizes the value of all persons regardless of identity. Our department is committed to preparing our students for engaged citizenship by creating an educational environment that is rich with cultural, social, and intellectual diversity. In keeping with the University Strategic Plan, we welcome applications from candidates belonging to traditionally underrepresented communities in academia.

This position requires a strong commitment to excellence in teaching in an undergraduate liberal arts environment. We are particularly interested in candidates who value interdisciplinary studies and can integrate their course content with the liberal arts. Candidates who can demonstrate expertise or experience with diverse pedagogical techniques are likewise encouraged to apply.

The teaching load is 5 courses per year including a 4-week spring term course every other year. The school calendar consists of two 13-week terms (Fall and Winter) and a 4-week Spring term.

We seek candidates that demonstrate the capacity to publish scholarly research in business and related fields that is consistent with the rank sought and who are enthusiastic about making service contributions to the W&L community. To support faculty research agendas, the university has a generous five-year sabbatical cycle as well as a pre-tenure research leave program.


A Ph.D. in a relevant field is required by the time of appointment. ABD candidates must present evidence that their dissertation will be defended by July 1, 2025 and have teaching experience. Ability to teach AIS and business statistics (with a preference for Python) and demonstrated teaching effectiveness are required.

Application Instructions

Review of applications will begin July 15, 2024 and continue until the position is filled. The search chair will attend AMCIS to conduct preliminary interviews; if you plan to attend AMCIS, please note this in your cover letter. Candidates should submit the following materials:

  • Letter of application summarizing teaching interests and experience, scholarship, and demonstrating the ability to work with a diverse student population
  • CV
  • Evidence of teaching effectiveness (including a teaching statement, representative syllabi, list of courses taught, and course evaluations. Please note: "Selected comments" are not considered a substitute for full course evaluations) 
  •  Names and contact information for three references (confidential letters of recommendation will be requested for semifinalists later in the search process)

During subsequent stages of the interview process, candidates may be asked to provide:

  • Written examples of scholarship

All materials should be submitted via Interfolio at
