Faculty Recruiting

Search for Faculty Director, Center for Private Equity and Entrepreneurship


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.
