The Management Science and Information Systems (MSIS) Department in the Spears School of
Business at Oklahoma State University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor
position slated to begin in Fall, 2018. The position is on the Tulsa campus. Departmental faculty, such
as this position, are located in both Stillwater and Tulsa and typically teach classes in both locations (as
well as on-line as appropriate).
OSU's MSIS Department has a unique blend of faculty, students and staff, delivering innovative
academic programs at the undergraduate, master's and doctoral level, producing impactful and high
quality research, and providing outstanding service to the profession, the university, the college and to
the community.
The Department has a long tradition of research and instructional programs in the data sciences.
Faculty have published some of the top-cited research papers in decision support systems and business
intelligence/data analytics history and continue this publishing excellence today. The Department also
partners with OSU's Center for Health Sciences and the Center of Health Systems Innovation in
delivering graduate programs and certificates, and conducting applied research, in health informatics
and health care analytics.
The Department is also a national leader in Information Assurance (IA), having long been designated a
National Center of Academic Excellence in IA Education (CAE/IAE) and Research (CAE-R) by the
NSA and the Department of Homeland Security. Additionally, the MSIS Department is known for its
innovative programs related to high school student outreach including the ISyTE (Information Systems
Technology Exploration) Summer Academy.
While applicants with all areas of MIS expertise are welcomed, preference will be given to candidates
who can provide instructional support for classes in object-oriented/multi-paradigm programming,
web-based systems development, mobile development, and other technical classes. The candidate
should be engaged in impactful research with aspirations of publishing in top MIS journals. Finally,
the candidate should have an innovative mindset and be willing to support and participate in
departmental initiatives as needed.
To be considered for the position, the preferred applicant will have completed a Ph.D. in MIS or
related area from an AACSB accredited university. Those close to finishing their degree (e.g., ABD
status) will also be considered. Applicant screening will begin immediately and will continue until the
position is filled. Interviews will begin at the major academic conferences (AMCIS, INFORMS, ICIS,
etc.), with follow up campus interviews also taking place during the Fall 2017 semester. All positions
are contingent upon available funding.
