The Strategy and Business Economics (SBE) Division of the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver Campus) invites applications for one tenure-track position at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level. We are inviting applications from researchers in the area of industrial organization and business strategy.
Applicants must have a record of research commensurate with the rank and a demonstrated successful experience in teaching, and senior-level candidates should have accomplished excellence in research. Entry level applicants should demonstrate an interest in and potential to conduct high quality research in a related field and be very close to completing or have completed a Ph.D. We welcome applications from outstanding candidates who demonstrate a strong interest in applying economic insights to decision-making in businesses. Overlapping interests in real estate and urban economics, competition policy, innovation, or public policy would be welcome.
Duties include developing and maintaining an active research program aimed at making a significant contribution to the profession, teaching in the Undergraduate, MBA and Ph.D. programs, supervising Ph.D. students, as well as contributing to other teaching and administrative initiatives of the Strategy and Business Economics Division and the Sauder School of Business. Candidates at the senior level will be expected to provide leadership that will enhance the reputation of the Strategy and Business Economics Division and the School. Teaching and service requirements are similar to other research-intensive universities.
The Division consists of economists who conduct research in areas such as international trade, industrial organization, public policy, innovation, and urban and real estate economics. More information about the SBE Division can be found on its web site at http://tinyurl.com/zm9ekck. The SBE Division collaborates with the Vancouver School of Economics in a joint Bachelor of International Economics program.
A completed application will include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, one or two research papers, a record of teaching effectiveness, and letters of reference (three at the assistant professor level and four at the associate or full professor level). The deadline for applications is Friday, November 22, 2021; however, applications may be considered after this date until the position is filled. Applications should be submitted online through https://econjobmarket.org/.
Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) are important components of the UBC Sauder culture. Please include in your cover letter any experiences you have had regarding equity, diversity and inclusion and comment on your ability to work with a culturally diverse student body (giving specific examples where possible).
Because of the continuing pandemic conditions, and in line with recommendations from the American Economic Association, we will conduct all first-round job interviews via Zoom. This replaces the in-person interviews that are normally conducted at the ASSA meetings. Following these interviews, candidates who move to the final round of consideration will be asked to visit UBC in person.
Subject to budgetary approval, the position starts July 1, 2022. Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit, or Indigenous person. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
Applicants to faculty positions at the University of British Columbia are asked to complete the following equity survey. The link to the survey is https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aVtaMWjwsMEcO4l. Your participation is voluntary and anonymous. The information will not be used to determine eligibility for employment. The answers will be collated to provide data that can assist us in understanding the diversity of our applicant pool and identifying potential barriers to the employment of designated equity group members. This survey takes only a minute to complete. You may self-identify in one or more of the designated equity groups. You may decline to identify in any or all of the questions by choosing “prefer not to disclose.” Thank you in advance for your participation.
