Sport Management Faculty (Tenure-Line, Open Rank)
The George Mason University Division of Sport, Recreation and Tourism (SRT)—within the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD)—invites applications for a tenure-line faculty member (open-rank) to join its internationally recognized faculty in Sport Management beginning in August 2018. George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason’s academic and culturally inclusive environment.
