John J. Kahl, Sr. Chair in Entrepreneurship
John Carroll University

The John M. and Mary Jo Boler School of Business at John Carroll University is seeking to fill the John J. Kahl, Sr. Chair in Entrepreneurship. The holder of the Kahl Chair will have the opportunity to further develop and grow our small but vibrant entrepreneurship program across John Carroll’s campus.

The Kahl Chair is also the chief academic officer of the Muldoon Center for Entrepreneurship, which is supported through a separate $2 million endowment. Working closely with the Director of the Muldoon Center, the Kahl Chair will provide the intellectual force driving the promotion of relationships between the University and the business community of Northeast Ohio.

As the academic cornerstone of John Carroll’s developing program in entrepreneurship, the holder will bring academic credibility to the program through a strong record of research. To establish John Carroll University as a significant contributor to the field, the Kahl Chair will maintain an aggressive research/publication effort in entrepreneurship targeted toward high quality refereed journals and national conference presentations.

As an established scholar in the field, the Kahl Chair is expected to be a leader and mentor for other faculty across disciplines in the Boler School by facilitating research activity and by encouraging the integration of entrepreneurship and innovation concepts in courses across the curriculum.

John Carroll University is a Catholic, Jesuit University with approximately 4,000 students. The Boler School of Business is AACSB accredited for our undergraduate and graduate programs and we are separately accredited by AACSB for our Accountancy program. Research expectations in the Boler School of Business reflect an equal balance between teaching and research. For faculty actively publishing their research, a typical teaching load is 9 hours per semester, usually with 2 preps. The Kahl Chair would have a substantially reduced teaching load to reflect the higher research expectations that accompany the position. The teaching load would include some combination of our current entrepreneurship course offerings.

Candidates should send a letter of application with their curriculum vita to: Dr. James H. Martin, Associate Dean, John M. and Mary Jo Boler School of Business, John Carroll University, 20700 North Park Boulevard, University Heights, OH, 44118.
