Open Rank, Finance Faculty – Darden School of Business



Job description

Charlottesville, VA

The Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia invites applications for a tenure track assistant, associate, or full professor faculty appointment in Finance to begin August 2021. We seek to hire faculty who stand out with respect to both research productivity and teaching potential. We will consider faculty in all areas of study. We note that Darden is home to the Mayo Center for Asset Management, a center of excellence that supports the activities of our faculty.

Applicants must have a doctorate or be ABD. Applicants must have an active academic research program that indicates an ability to generate work of the highest quality and the potential to publish at premier outlets. Applicants must be capable of teaching in a “student-centered” environment that requires excellence in the handling of issues related to diversity and inclusion and must also be able to develop curriculum materials for both internal and external use. Applicants should be willing and able to uphold Darden community values, contribute as leaders to Darden and to academic communities in our profession, and engage with practicing managers.

Darden is an organization with a strong culture that reflects a commitment to our mission and values.  Candidates who are invited for personal interviews will be asked to describe how they could help foster a learning environment that inspires and engages a diverse audience. The recent social unrest in the US has added urgency to our longstanding aim of being a diverse, equitable and inclusive business school. (Read the University of Virginia’s Commitment to Diversity Statement and Darden’s actions).

Review of applications will begin on November 16, 2020, and the position will remain open until filled. For more information about the Darden School and the University of Virginia, see

University of Virginia

Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia in 1819. He wished the publicly-supported school to have a national character and stature. Jefferson envisioned a new kind of university, one dedicated to educating leaders in practical affairs and public service rather than for professions in the classroom and pulpit exclusively. It was the first nonsectarian university in the United States and the first to use the elective course system.
