Job Summary

The Department of Entrepreneurship & Strategy at the University of Utah David Eccles School of Business is inviting applications for one multiyear postdoctoral fellowship position, which will be affiliated with the Goff Strategic Leadership Center.

The Department also co-hosts the Winter Strategy Conference, which annually features the work of early career strategy scholars.
