Try Michael Innes's HAMLET, REVENGE!, though, as I recall, it concerns
an acting troupe rather than university profs.

For a list and discussion of some 50 various Shakespearean detective
novels see Susan Baker, "Shakespearean Authority in the Classic
Detective Story", Shakespeare Quarterly, 46 (1995), 424-448.

James Thurber's 'The Macbeth Murder Mystery' is a splendid example of
misguided detective work.

Having deleted the original question, I can't respond off-list but, as I
recall more or less fuzzily,  Michael Innes' (J.I.M.Stewart's) pre-war
"Hamlet, Revenge" involved killing off many of the members of an
academic theater company which was producing a "Hamlet" that reflected
the special interpretation of its producer-academic guiding spirit.  One
of Innes' earliest and best.

Clint, there's a collection of stories by various authors, called
'Shakespearean Whodunnits': I think it is a Random House paperback but
am not sure. They did a whole series of such collections, including
historical Detectives, Railway Whodunnits etc. The collection in
question mostly springs off from some untied end in one or other of S's
plays.
