Sport Management Faculty (Tenure-Line, Open Rank)

The George Mason University Division of Sport, Recreation and Tourism (SRT)—within the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD)—invites applications for a tenure-line faculty member (open-rank) to join its internationally recognized faculty in Sport Management beginning in August 2018. George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason’s academic and culturally inclusive environment.

SRT offers undergraduate programs in Sport Management, Recreation Management, and Tourism and Events Management along with a master’s program in Sport and Recreation Studies with a concentration in Sport Management and certificates in International Sport Management and Sport Coaching. The Division also offers several collaborative undergraduate minors, including Sport Communication, Sport Analytics, Sport Coaching, Sport and American Culture, Sport and Conflict Resolution, and Sport and Computer Game Design. Due to its location in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area—the nation’s fifth largest sport market—the program offers ample opportunities for engagement with the sport industry.

Candidates will be expected to have or develop an active research agenda that includes high-quality publications and externally funded research, and to teach courses on core topics in Sport Management (e. g., sport marketing, economics, governance, analytics, technology, venues, or global perspectives). Additional responsibilities include:

  • Advising graduate capstones;
  • Participating in ongoing program development and delivery;
  • Completing essential service activities for the program, college, and professional community; and
  • Contributing to special initiatives related to the Sport Management program.
