We do this by providing exemplary interdisciplinary programs within a distributed and relational learning model grounded in student-driven inquiry and leading to enhanced knowledge.

Core faculty members are expected to engage in three general areas of effort: to provide mentoring and educational experiences for students; to be productive in scholarship and practice; and to engage in governance and service to the School of Leadership Studies (SLS) and Fielding Graduate University.
These areas of effort include, but are not limited to, the following responsibilities:
Engage in collaborative education for self-directed adult learners.
Assess students’ academic performance to achieve educational, personal and professional development goals.
Support students through individualized academic and professional feedback to strengthen doctoral-level knowledge and skills.
Remain productive in scholarship and practice to better serve students.
Engage in professional service to SLS and Fielding Graduate University that contributes to student achievement.
Engage in community, social, and organizational change action within SLS, Fielding, and in the larger societal context.
We seek scholar-practitioners who are at least 5 years post doctorate in Organization Development and Change (or a related area) who have taught at the doctoral level, supervised doctoral dissertations, and who have an active research program with a record of research/scholarly publications. Faculty members supervise doctoral dissertations, teach course seminars that mix synchronous and asynchronous interactions, and offer in person seminars at two or three week long residential events per year. (Note that all courses are currently taught at a distance due to the pandemic. In person events will resume at an unknown future date.) Faculty members also conduct meetings (currently via Zoom) with students and serve as their mentors.
Candidates who wish to be considered for this doctoral faculty position must be able to show proof of the right to work in the U.S.
Preference will be given to candidates with an earned doctorate in Organization Development or a related field. We are particularly interested in applicants with successful experiences in teaching, research or scholarship, and applied work in areas related to Organization Development and Change. Areas of specialization may include but are not limited to: organization theory, institutional theory, intervention methods, organization structure, design thinking, systems perspectives and strategic leadership. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in quantitative and qualitative methods.
Doctoral faculty members are expected to maintain an active program of research and scholarship as well as participate in program and university committees. Applicants who can contribute to diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and mentorship are strongly encouraged to apply. To fulfill our goal of a more diverse faculty, preference will be given to candidates who have not earned their doctorate degree from Fielding.
