Tenure-Track Assistant Professors, MANAGEMENT

University of British Columbia Okanagan


The Faculty of Management is recruiting two tenure-track Assistant Professors. We invite outstanding scholars to apply.

• We have one position in management, for which we are especially interested in applicants specialising in aspects of small and medium sized enterprises, and/or aspects of sustainability.
• We have one position in wine management. Particular specialisations in wine management may include but are not limited to strategy, organisational behaviour, entrepreneurship, technological change, agricultural economics, agribusiness, agritourism, industry development, and public policy. The successful applicant will become a key contributor to UBC’s Wine Research Centre.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a discipline relevant to the position for which they apply. They must have a strong record demonstrating an ability to conduct outstanding research, and to engage relevant communities, stakeholders, and publics in their research; the potential to attract external research funding; an ability for excellent teaching in management subject areas at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to professionals and wider publics. Successful candidates will be expected to participate collegially in Faculty of Management service and activities, and engage effectively with colleagues across UBC.

The ideal candidate will have a strong commitment to Indigenous engagement. As part of the University’s response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, UBC Okanagan has committed to supporting and implementing five key commitments, which can be found at

The Faculty of Management offers undergraduate and graduate programs, and participates in UBC’s interdisciplinary graduate study program. We focus on leading and managing fast-changing organizations in globally connected, non-metropolitan regions. We aim to have a major impact in practice on innovation and socio-economic development in different parts of the world, including the Okanagan and British Columbia Interior; and to increase the innovative and creative capability of students in imagining and realizing their future, as well as the futures of others. As a Faculty, we are very strongly connected to other Faculties at UBC, and we aim to deepen and enrich those connections.

The Faculty is the administrative base of the Social and Economic Change Laboratory (SE-Change), where faculty and staff from across UBC’s Okanagan campus come together to focus on social and economic change in territories, delivering cross-campus, interdisciplinary education, through research and associated learning programs. We are one of the lead Faculties - alongside the Faculty of Science at UBC’s Okanagan campus, and the Faculty of Land and Food Systems at UBC’s Vancouver campus – in the UBC Wine Research Centre, a research and education centre that supports the development of a sustainable Canadian grape and wine industry through world-class research, excellence in wine education, applied solutions, and knowledge mobilization. Scholars in the Faculty of Management also have ample opportunity to contribute to and benefit from many other interdisciplinary institutes and initiatives at UBC, e.g. BRAES (The Okanagan Institute for Biodiversity, Resilience, and Ecosystem Services), Institute for Community Engaged Research (ICER), and UBC STAR (UBC Survive and Thrive Applied Research initiative.)

As one of the world's leading universities, the University of British Columbia aims to create an exceptional learning environment that fosters global citizenship, advances a civil and sustainable society, and supports outstanding research relevant to the people of British Columbia, Canada, and the world. UBC’s Okanagan campus offers faculty exciting opportunities for interdisciplinary and region-centered research, as well as opportunities to develop innovative learning environments with students and communities. The campus is situated in one of Canada’s most entrepreneurial regions.
