Michigan State University


Michigan State University actively promotes a dynamic research and learning environment in which qualified individuals of differing perspectives, and cultural backgrounds pursue academic goals with mutual respect and shared inquiry.

Toward building on its capacity and expertise in the future of work and technology, the School of Human Resources & Labor Relations in the College of Social Science at Michigan State University seeks applicants for a full-time tenure system position at the Assistant Professor level in human resources and/or employment relations. This position is an academic-year (nine-month) appointment with a beginning date of August 16, 2020.


Ensuring that every employee is allowed to put forth their best efforts and truly thrive is essential for long-term organizational success. In an era of increasing divisiveness, creating and maintaining an inclusive workplace is your competitive advantage. 


We are seeking candidates whose primary research interests and expertise focus on the human-technology interface at work, and the effects of rapidly emerging technologies on work and the workplace. The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary group of faculty across the social sciences, engineering, computer science, and management examining the future of work and technology. Instructional responsibilities include some combination of teaching in our signature Master of Human Resources and Labor Relations program, our Human Capital and Society undergraduate major, and our doctoral program.

The exceptional quality of our graduates is the result of attracting highly talented and motivated students and having them taught and mentored by highly talented and dedicated faculty.
