Tenure Track Position in Management, School of Business, University of Prince Edward Island

The School of Business at the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) invites applications for a tenure-track position in management (organizational behavior, human resource management). Appointment is expected at the Assistant Professor level; however, applicants for an Associate Professor position may be considered. This position is subject to budgetary approval.

Candidates must have an earned doctorate in a relevant field, or be close to completion. A record of excellence in teaching and research appropriate to career stage, or a demonstration of clear promise is required. The successful candidate will be a member of the faculty team and be expected to balance service contributions with scholarly productivity and teaching excellence, at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The UPEI School of Business has emphasized evidence-based management and enjoyed considerable case competition success in recent years. Candidates who are able to contribute in those areas are encouraged to apply. Preference may be given to candidates with both strong academic qualifications and professional experience in an applied setting.

The University of Prince Edward Island is recognized as a leading, innovative centre of excellence in learning, teaching, scholarship, and research. While it is strongly connected to the vibrant social and cultural environment of Prince Edward Island, it enjoys a reputation that extends far beyond the Island’s shores.

The University is located in the provincial capital of Charlottetown, a bustling tourist destination that boasts the amenities of a much larger city, including excellent theatre, galleries, music, and dining possibilities. A province-wide hiking and biking trail runs right along the UPEI campus, and the National Park beaches and world-famous golf courses are a short drive away. Charlottetown and its surrounding communities offer charming and affordable housing options, a low crime rate, and a semi-rural lifestyle that is second-to-none.

Start Date: July 2017

Application Instructions:
Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae, list of publications, research outline, and teaching dossier (including evidence of teaching effectiveness). They should arrange for three letters of reference to be sent directly to the address below.
