Syracuse University Begins Search for New JPMorgan Chase Professor

Syracuse University and JPMorgan Chase have embarked upon an unprecedented program of collaboration across a broad spectrum of research, curricular innovation, and community engagement designed to educate and inspire the next generation of information technology professionals in the global financial services industry.  Syracuse University now invites applications and nominations for a distinguished scholar to be the JPMorgan Chase Professor.  This interdisciplinary appointment may span fields or subfields of finance, information technology and management, and computer science.  Proven ability to integrate contributions of faculty and practitioners from across these disciplines is a key element of success for this position.

 

The JPMorgan Chase Professor will be a scholar with a demonstrated, strong, applied research program related to technology and infrastructure; ability and interest to contribute to innovative curricular redesign and to teaching undergraduate and graduate students across disciplines; and motivation to broaden the impacts of our collective efforts to include workforce development, community engagement, and innovation in industry practices.   We seek an individual who has enjoyed success working in collaborations that include people from diverse backgrounds, very different working environments, and multiple disciplines.  A track record of innovation in education and workforce development is desired. The ideal candidate for this position will have a Ph.D. and academic credentials appropriate for a chaired position in a related discipline and will also have experience in the global financial services industry.  Of greatest import, however, is broad knowledge and distinguished experience in both academia and business and a strong vision for how each can be strengthened through multimodal collaboration.

 

Nominations or expressions of interest should be directed to JPMorgan Chase Professor Search, 207 Bowne Hall, Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York 13244.  Electronic submission of communications or supporting materials is welcome at ghchapma@syr.edu.  Individuals who become serious candidates will be asked to submit a curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and statements of experience and expertise related to the global financial services industry.  All applications will be confidential until the applicant agrees otherwise.  Review of applications will begin February 15, 2008, and will continue until the position is filled.  Syracuse University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer with a strong commitment to equality of opportunity and a diverse work force.
