Isenberg Professorship for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The Isenberg School of Management at UMass Amherst has received approval for a search for the Eugene M. Isenberg Professorship for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The closing date for this chaired professorship is April 1, 2011 or until the position is filled. The Search Committee consists of Faculty from the Operations Management, Management, and Marketing disciplines since it is expected that the holder of this professorship will be in one of these areas, and the VCRE at UMass Amherst, Professor Michael Malone.

A link to the position description on the Isenberg School site is here. Ads for this position are expected to be placed in The Chronicle of Higher Education, ORMS Today (online), ASEE Prism, among other venues.

The previous holder of this chaired professorship was Dr. Soren Bisgaard, who passed away on December 14, 2009. Other holders of Isenberg chaired professorships are Dr. Michael "Mike" Malone, who is the Isenberg Distinguished Professor of Engineering, in addition to serving as the Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement, and Dr. Lawrence M. Schwartz, who is the Isenberg Professor in Integrative Science, and who was named this past year. These professorships are endowed by Ronnie and Eugene M. Isenberg, after whom the Isenberg School of Management is named.
