Faculty Position in Project Management and Operations Management

University of Ottawa

The Telfer School of Management of the University of Ottawa invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position in Project Management and Operations Management commencing July 1, 2019.

Traditionally, there has been a strong scholarly association between project management and operations management, as they complement one another. While project management has grown to a more strategic and complex management of projects focused on delivering benefits and value for end-users, stakeholders and organizations, the operations management community has continued its longstanding interest in systems, processes and models that help create goods and deliver services. We are looking for a faculty member whose teaching and research interests straddle both areas of management.

Title of the Position: Professor in Project Management and Operations Management at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The rank is commensurate with experience.

Duties: Duties of a faculty member will include in varying proportions: a) teaching activities; b) scholarly activities; c) academic service activities; and d) supervision of graduate students.

The candidate is interested and able to teach project management and operations management at the undergraduate, professional (MBA) and Masters and/or Ph.D. levels; has a track record of submitting research proposals to external granting agencies (success in receiving funds preferable); has a promising research program aligned with the School's goal of publishing in internationally respected journals. Practical experience in project management and operations management may be an asset.

Terms: Tenure-track position.

Salary & Benefits Package: Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience and typically starts at $115,000 per year at the assistant level. The University of Ottawa provides a comprehensive compensation package, which includes long-term disability, basic group life insurance, supplementary health insurance, a University of Ottawa pension plan, optional life insurance and funds for eligible relocation expenses. The School also offers a start-up period with a reduced teaching load and start-up funding for research.

Location of Work: University of Ottawa, Telfer School of Management, 55 Laurier Avenue East, Ottawa Ontario, K1N 6N5.

Application Deadline: Applications received prior to February 15, 2019 will be given first consideration. Applications received after that date will be considered until the position is filled.

Skills Requirements: Education: Ph.D. in project management, operations management, business, engineering management or any closely related field with a focus on project management and operations management (e.g. project management and supply chain management). Candidates completing their PhD degrees by July 1, 2019 will also be considered at the rank of Assistant Professor.

Applications must contain: 1) a cover letter, 2) a curriculum vitae, 3) a brief research statement, 4) a brief statement of teaching philosophy, 5) recent teaching evaluation reports, and 6) for those applying at the rank of Assistant, three letters of recommendation sent under separate cover including a recommendation letter from the Ph.D. thesis supervisor. Otherwise, for those applying at the rank of Associate Professor, names and contact information of three individuals who may be contacted for references if the candidate is on the short list of people invited for an interview.
