Two Tenure-Track Positions in Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources

University of British Columbia

The Organizational Behaviour & Human Resources Division of the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver Campus) invites applications for two tenure track faculty positions. The first position, at the Assistant Professor level, is open to applicants specializing in Organizational Theory. This position is well suited to applicants who hold (or are very close to completing before the position start date) a Ph.D. in management or related disciplines including Sociology and Public Policy. For the second position, we are seeking applicants at either the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level, with expertise in the areas of Family Business and Entrepreneurship, and an appropriately related Ph.D. Responsibilities for this second position will include involvement in the UBC Sauder Business Families Centre.

The ideal candidate for both positions will demonstrate research and teaching excellence commensurate with their respective rank. Duties include developing and maintaining an active research program with the goal of high-quality research contributions, developing and teaching classes in our undergraduate and graduate education programs, supervising Ph.D. students, and contributing to other teaching and administrative initiatives in the Organizational Behaviour & Human Resources Division and at the UBC Sauder School of Business. Teaching and service responsibilities are similar to other research-intensive universities. UBC Sauder provides generous start up grants for research, extensive development opportunities and support for junior faculty including an engaging seminar series, faculty “lunch and learn” sessions that focus on teaching development, methods workshops, and paper development workshops. In addition, the Canadian Federal Government sponsors several research funding competitions through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.

The Organizational Behaviour & Human Resources Division consists of 11 scholars in an interdisciplinary division with both macro and micro research interests who study a wide range of workplace and organizational issues and publish in top tier management journals. The Sauder School of Business is part of the University of British Columbia (UBC). UBC ranks among the top 30 universities worldwide, attracting a high-quality and diverse student body.

UBC is located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, a city that routinely ranks as one of the best places to live in the world. With a population of 2.5 million, Vancouver is a vibrant and multicultural city situated between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean and is located two hours from Whistler and Seattle, Washington.

A full application package should include:

(1) A cover letter explaining your interest in UBC Sauder, and the position you are applying for;
(2) A curriculum vitae;
(3) A research statement;

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged.
