Assistant or Associate Professor - Indigenous Business

The Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia seeks outstanding candidates for a tenure-track position to build on the School’s strengths in the study and teaching of Indigenous business.

The School has created and established an Executive MBA in Aboriginal Business and Leadership, now in its third cohort, which draws students from across Canada and is the only program of its kind outside of New Zealand. The degree is part of SFU’s wider commitment to leadership in the scholarship of Indigenous issues, and community engagement more broadly. The School wishes to complement the development of globally-recognized graduate teaching in Indigenous business with an equally strong research base. It will be the new hire’s primary responsibility to work on and catalyze that research agenda. Meaningful research in this area will be first and foremost publishable in top academic journals, and additionally engaged with real-world issues and communities or organizations. The development of published teaching cases on Indigenous business would make a valuable contribution as part of the successful hire’s impactful research agenda, but ideally only in synergy with rigorous, peer-reviewed publications.

The successful candidate will have a strong research and publication record, or potential to develop such a record, in one or more of our existing areas of business including, but not limited to, organizational behaviour, entrepreneurship, sustainable development, public policy of business or strategy.  We also welcome the interest of exceptional candidates with expertise in Aboriginal contexts who may have been trained in a core discipline like economics, sociology, law or political science, but who can see the potential in pivoting their research agenda to focus on business and related issues. We do expect candidates to be able to demonstrate familiarity with Indigenous business and economic development. Additionally, the candidate must have demonstrated teaching competence at the undergraduate, graduate, and/or executive education levels, with potential to become a very strong teacher to experienced executive MBA students. A Ph.D. is required by August 2018. Candidates of any rank are welcome to apply, however the School has a preference for an assistant or junior associate professor.

The Beedie School of Business is recognized as a top ranked research school, is accredited by both AACSB and EQUIS, and is signatory to Principles for Responsible Management Education. We have programs at the Undergraduate, Masters, Ph.D. and Executive levels, including Canada’s first Executive MBA program.
