The Department of Management at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) invites applications for a full-time tenure stream position in the area of Strategic Management. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, with an expected start date of July 1, 2024, or shortly thereafter.
The University of Toronto Scarborough is implementing a new Strategic Plan: Inspiring Inclusive Excellence. Consistent with the values and objectives in that plan, we especially welcome candidates who self-identify as Indigenous or those who have lived experience in Black or other racialized (persons of colour) communities. This position is part of a cohort of similar faculty searches in Anthropology, Arts, Culture & Media, Biological Sciences, Health & Society, Historical & Cultural Studies, Language Studies, Political Science, and Sociology. New colleagues will have the opportunity to be connected with previous cohorts of faculty from under-represented groups, including those hired through targeted efforts in the last three years in departments spanning the Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities.
Candidates must have earned a PhD degree in strategic management, or a closely related area by the time of appointment, or shortly thereafter. Candidates' academic concentration and research programs should be in areas directly related to strategic management; particular attention will be given to applicants with a research focus in entrepreneurship, innovation, or business and society. Candidates must also have a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level. We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and enhance our existing departmental strengths. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue innovative and independent research at the highest international level and to establish an outstanding, competitive, and externally funded research program.
Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence which can be demonstrated by a record of publications in top-ranked and field-relevant journals or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards, the submitted research statement, presentations at significant conferences, awards and accolades, and strong endorsements from referees of high standing in the candidate's field. Evidence of excellence in teaching will be provided through a teaching dossier (with required materials outlined below) submitted as part of the application, as well as strong letters of reference.
Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. We seek candidates who value diversity and whose research, teaching and service bear out our commitment to equity. Candidates must also show evidence of a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and to the promotion of a respectful and collegial learning and working environment, as demonstrated through the application materials. Candidates are also asked to submit a 1- to 2-page statement of contributions to equity and diversity, which might cover topics such as (but not limited to): research or teaching that incorporates a focus on underrepresented communities, the development of inclusive pedagogies, or the mentoring of students from underrepresented groups. The statement should describe how the candidate's lived experience has influenced their understanding of and commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion (EDI), the promotion of a respectful and collegial learning and working environment, as well as examples of how it is reflected in their research or teaching.
The University of Toronto is highly research-oriented and seeks to attract top researchers. It is ranked first in Canada and 16th in the world for research citations. We attract a diverse, scholarly, and collegial group of faculty members from universities across the world. Our building boasts state-of-the-art lecture halls, case rooms, and research labs, a dedicated data modeling lab, as well as event spaces, restaurants, and rooftop gardens. Our students come from a wide variety of countries and a range of ethnic backgrounds, some of whom are employed through our highly successful Co-operative Education Program. We also offer a Management and International Business program wherein our students complete an international work term as well as a study abroad term.
We are interested in candidates who are dedicated to maintaining the excellence of our undergraduate program specializing in Strategic Management and are committed to contributing to graduate programs in the area. Further, successful candidates will be cross-appointed to the Rotman School of Management, providing them opportunities to collaborate with faculty and graduate students at the St George Campus. These resources and opportunities, along with a supportive climate for scholarly research, provide a rich environment for professional development.
