Beedie School of Business

Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) - Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Together, the Beedie School of Business and Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) are actively building a diverse, welcoming and transformative community and invite applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in the newly-emerging diverse and interdisciplinary field of Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship beginning in September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

SFU seeks an exceptional emerging scholar for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor with demonstrated potential for leadership and international recognition. SFU requires the successful candidate to have a PhD in a relevant field and applicants should bring an original program of research, a commitment to transfer knowledge, capacity to receive external funding as well as the potential for building successful research teams.

The Chair will take a significant role in furthering the social innovation mandate of SFU, the Beedie School and FHS in research and experiential learning. The Chair will conduct research and guide graduate and undergraduate students in social innovation and entrepreneurship research and practice. Social Innovation in the two faculties refers to strategies and services that address social needs, and include processes and products of innovation that enhance social well-being writ large.

The Chair will be located in either the Beedie School or FHS, or as a joint appointment. This position is contingent upon the applicant receiving a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair. Tier 2 Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars (i.e. candidates must have been an active researcher in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination). Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, including maternity leave, extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) may have their eligibility assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. Please see the CRC website for eligibility details or contact the office for Institutional Strategic Awards.

This position is subject to the availability of funding and to final approval of the University Board of Governors and the CRC Secretariat. The Canada Research Chair Program sponsorship of this position is for five years and renewable once, after which the university is responsible. Interested applicants are invited to review the appointment and renewal details of the CRC program.

SFU recognizes that alternative career paths and/or career interruptions (e.g. maternity leave, leave due to illness, etc.) can impact research achievements and commits to ensuring that leaves are taken into careful consideration. Candidates are encouraged to highlight how alternative paths and/or interruptions have impacted them in their applications.

Simon Fraser University is an institution whose strength is based on our shared commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion. Diversity is an underlying principle of our Strategic Vision, which pledges SFU to “foster a culture of inclusion and mutual respect, celebrating the diversity reflected among its students, faculty staff and our community.” SFU is committed to ensuring no individual is denied access to employment opportunities for reasons unrelated to ability or qualifications. Consistent with this principle, SFU will advance the interests of underrepresented members of the work force, specifically Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, racialized persons and women; embrace gender and sexual diversity; ensure that equal opportunity is afforded to all who seek employment at the University; and treat all employees equitably.
