Given the needs of MDCOB students, successful candidates must be willing to teach a variety of days, times, and modalities (i.e., face-to-face, online, and hybrid formats). The position requires someone who is conscientious, and the candidate should desire to work in an innovative department. We seek a collaborator who is both intelligent and hard working. Reliability is valued. Faculty are expected to teach courses offered at the primary campus located in downtown Houston, as well as off-campus locations located in suburban, northwest Houston.

More specifically, UHD and the MDCOB value diversity, equity, and inclusion and are committed to hiring faculty who share these values. UHD is a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) as well as a Minority-Serving Institution (MSI) with a high proportion of first-generation college students. In order to enact our values and support our mission as an HSI / MSI, we encourage and actively seek candidates who are able to demonstrate an understanding of the barriers facing individuals representing diverse social identities in business and management. We also desire candidates who are able to articulate and support their experience and future plans to promote equity and inclusion in teaching, mentoring, and research in the management discipline.
