    Posted 10-18-2023 10:56

    In response to its continuous growth, IÉSEG School of Management is looking for a full-time professor in Management of Information Systems with a focus on Cybersecurity at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level (Lille Campus, starting September 2024). He/She/They will be a part of the Department of Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Information Systems.



    IÉSEG holds the "triple crown" of international accreditations (AACSB, AMBA & EQUIS) and is a member of the "Conférence des Grandes Écoles". The School offers Bachelor, Master and Post-Graduate Degrees as well as Executive Education programs. IÉSEG is also one of the leading French business schools in terms of research. The IÉSEG Research Center is accredited by the French CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research). Our Lille Campus is in the heart of Northern France (within the triangle made up by London, Paris and Brussels), and our Paris Campus is located in the biggest European business district of "La Défense". More information on the school can be found here:



    The department of Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Information Systems consists of more than 20 permanent academic staff who teach and perform research in the areas of Information Systems, Digital Transformation, Law, Entrepreneurship, Design Thinking, among others. An overview of our diverse group of professors can be found here: Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Information Systems Department



    Teaching will be the main focus of the selected candidate at the undergraduate, graduate and/or postgraduate level. Teaching experience in areas of Information Systems with a focus on Cybersecurity is desired. The ideal candidate will be able to teach cybersecurity beyond the introductory level and from both a technical (technical controls, incident response, forensics, pen testing, etc.) and managerial (risk management, governance, crisis management, etc.) perspective. Certifications are a plus.


    In addition, he/she/they will contribute to the development of the Department's programs. The candidate will be involved in the development of programs on cybersecurity in particular. As such, we are looking for candidates with strong teaching skills, and who are fluent in English, as most courses are taught in this language. Professional experience and knowledge of French are a plus, but not a requirement.


    With regards to research, the selected candidate will contribute to the vibrant research community at IESEG through their research. He/she/they is therefore expected to hold a PhD in Information systems or related field, have a publication record (or potential for Assistant Professors) in peer-reviewed journals, as well as a good international network.


    Finally, we are looking for candidates who embody our core values of Accomplishment, Responsibility, Integrity, Solidarity, and Engagement, and fit our diverse and international culture in which over 50 nationalities are represented. IÉSEG places tremendous value on diversity and inclusion, and we therefore encourage applications from all backgrounds. Underrepresented groups in academia (notably women, minority ethnic groups, people identifying as LGBTQIA+, people with a (non-)visible disability, and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds and/or economically developing countries) are particularly encouraged to apply, as we are highly committed to ensuring that IÉSEG reflects and benefits from the diversity present in society.



    At IÉSEG, we are committed to providing a supportive and engaging work environment. To new faculty members (and their partner), we offer a wide range of resources to help them integrate into the country, culture, and school, such as individualized French language courses (for faculty members and their partner), a relocation allowance, and housing search assistance. Moreover, all faculty members have access to a competitive salary, as well as benefits such as French social security, a complementary health insurance, meal vouchers, a profit-sharing plan, and a contributory pension scheme. Finally, the school actively promotes research, provides resources for active scholars (e.g., funding for conferences and data collection) and offers competitive financial bonuses for high quality international peer-reviewed research publications.

    • A CV
