Faculty Positions at IBA (Karachi)

Faculty Positions at IBA (Karachi)
Institute of Business Administration (IBA)

History of IBA, Karachi:
The Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Karachi-South Asia’s premier business school established in 1955 with initial logistical and curricular support from the Wharton School of France, University of Pennsylvania and the University of Southern California, is the oldest business school outside of North America. The IBA has maintained the high standards and academic traditions inherited from Wharton and USC, while adapting and adjusting these to our local context. As part of the Institute’s academic expansion, we recently launched a broad-based, interdisciplinary degree-program in the Social Sciences & Liberal Arts, with undergraduate majors in Media & Communications, Political Sciences and Psychology.
Position Requirements:
The Institute of Business Administration’s Department of Social Sciences & Liberal Arts invites applications from qualified academics at all ranks (Lecturer, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor) for full-time positions in the fields listed above. The ranks at which candidates are appointed are assessed in accordance with the criteria established by the Higher Education Commission, Pakistan. Applicants should have PhDs in hand or in progress, broad knowledge of their fields of expertise, understanding of interdisciplinary approaches to the social sciences and demonstrated commitment to research and publication. Previous teaching experience preferred, but not required.

Salient Features of IBA’s Academic Environment:
The following details summarize salient features of IBA’s academic environment and pedagogical approach.

Faculty members are encouraged to present papers at national and international conferences. IBA provides financial support to facilitate conference registrations and travel. Faculty members are also encouraged to attend short and longer-term training programs/seminars relevant to their fields of research. IBA has a separate budget specifically for this purpose.
Faculty members may also teach courses at the IBA-Center for Executive Education (CEE), for which they receive separate remuneration. The CEE offers short and long-term training to business professionals throughout Pakistan.
Faculty members are encouraged to consult with professional organizations in Pakistan and abroad. Any compensation received for such work is shared with IBA 70:30, with the major portion retained by the individual faculty member.
Faculty members engaged in extended research projects may apply for sabbaticals.
IBA offers generous relocation allowances and faculty housing to facilitate those successful candidates who live outside Karachi.
In addition to the standard benefits for all employees — earned leave and medical insurance (hospitalization for self, spouse, children and parents) — IBA has recently introduced long-term benefits, such as Gratuity, Provident Fund and Group Life Insurance.
We have established a Center for Business and Economics Research (CBER) which provides opportunities for faculty members to take part in contract research for which they are compensated, in addition to their salaries. Faculty members who are awarded research grants retain 70% of the net earnings and pay 30% to IBA. In addition, competitive funding is available for research projects.
Faculty members engaged in research projects or in writing case studies assume reduced teaching loads.
