It is axiomatic in many fields that one must learn from history in order to avoid repeating it. In business, students and professionals learn much from recent history, from peers and mentors, from case studies, and from experience—but all too infrequently do economic actors step back for a panoramic view of the landscape of political economy across time. Absent the perspective of the large-scale boom and bust cycle, it is exceedingly tempting to believe that each new wave of growth and development is somehow fundamentally different from those that came before it, and immune to the pitfalls that have turned boom to bust before. History provides valuable lessons, and educated leaders in the world of business should understand that context and be able to apply the lessons of the past to the decisions that shape the present and the future.

This distinguished professorship is intended to recognize outstanding records in both research and teaching with a preference for a focus on global political economy and markets, institutions, economic cycles, and financial crises with a historical perspective.
The Kadas T’90 Distinguished Professorship will be held by a member of the faculty of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. The Dean of the Tuck School will nominate potential incumbents following Tuck’s established procedures for appointments to endowed professorships.

The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, Dartmouth College's graduate school of management, seeks a senior scholar in Finance or Financial Economics to serve as the Faculty Director for the Center for Private Equity and Entrepreneurship at Tuck.
We seek candidates who have scholarly interests in the areas of private equity and venture capital finance, or entrepreneurial finance broadly speaking. Candidates should have a research record and potential for further research that would support a tenured position in the Finance/Economics/Accounting group at Tuck. Tuck will offer a very attractive package of compensation, research support, and teaching load.
The Center for Private Equity and Entrepreneurship was started in 1998 and since that time has promoted research in private equity and venture capital finance by organizing conferences, hosting visiting scholars, and supporting the research of Tuck faculty and Center staff. Professor and Dean Emeritus Colin Blaydon has served as Faculty Director since the Center’s inception. The Center is supported and advised by a prestigious 40-member Advisory Board, who are eager to offer their full support to a new Director (for more information, go to http://mba.tuck.dartmouth.edu/pecenter/).
The primary roles of the Faculty Director of the Center are to conduct academic research in the finance and economics of the private equity and entrepreneurial finance industries and to give intellectual guidance to the Center’s professional staff as they organize the Center’s activities in three main areas: research, support for MBA students and the MBA Program, and corporate/alumni outreach. Ideally, the Faculty Director will teach a course in a relevant area in the MBA Program.
The Tuck School of Business, founded in 1900, is consistently ranked among the top ten U.S. business schools. In our faculty, we generally look for excellence in both research and teaching, and we provide generous financial and logistical support in a highly collegial culture to achieve those ends. We are located in the charming New England town of Hanover, NH. Residents of Hanover enjoy a first-rate public school system, access to an award-winning teaching hospital, and year-round world-class recreational opportunities.
