Canada Research Chair, Alternative Pathways for the Economic Integration of Canada’s Immigrant Population, Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University

The Opportunity
The Ted Rogers School of Management (TRSM) at Ryerson University invites applications for a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Alternative Pathways for the Economic Integration of Canada’s Immigrant Population to be appointed in a department/school within TRSM. As defined by the guidelines, Tier 2 chairs, tenable for five years and renewable once, are for “exceptional emerging researchers acknowledged by their peers as having the potential to lead in their field”. The successful candidate will develop, with Ryerson University, the CRC nomination package for the October, 2018 deadline, with the goal of being awarded the Tier 2 CRC in April, 2019. Upon success of the nomination to the CRC Program, the candidate will be appointed to a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor or a tenured position at the rank of Associate Professor beginning July 1, 2019. This position is subject to final budgetary approval. All Chairs are subject to review and final approval by the CRC Secretariat.

The Canada Research Chairs Program is a federal initiative that offers eligible Canadian institutions the opportunity to nominate outstanding researchers for professorships in areas that will further the institution’s strategic research plan and enable them to maximize their contributions as centres of research and research training. Please consult the Canada Research Chairs website for more information about the CRC program and eligibility.

We are seeking an outstanding emerging scholar to join our research and innovation environment, bringing experience and a keen interest in issues related to the economic integration of Canada’s immigrant population. Immigrants’ employment and entrepreneurial opportunities are complex and intertwined, making the integration process far more difficult than previously thought. This opens the door to a research program that is original, innovative, and interdisciplinary. The successful candidate will help clarify overlapping research interests in fields as diverse as entrepreneurship, international business, human resource management/organizational behaviour, economics, sociology, and psychology; and bring together some of the brightest minds to frame the relevant issues and find creative solutions.
The ultimate value of this proposed CRC position in Alternative Pathways for the Economic Integration of Canada’s Immigrant Population lies in its potential to create and mobilize practical knowledge and beneficial policy implications that help immigrants to rebuild their lives quickly, and to efficiently realize their full economic potential and contribute to Canadian prosperity and growth. It is expected that this Chair position will contribute to developing outcomes that respond to Canada’s priorities of addressing labour market skill shortages, enhancing social cohesion, small business development and internationalization, and enhancing global competitiveness in the knowledge economy.

The Bensadoun School of Retail Management (BSRM) at McGill University invites applications for a tenure-track/tenured position at the Assistant/Associate Professor level in the area of retail management. The applicants for the Associate level should have an established research and teaching record, while applicants for the Assistant level should demonstrate potential for research and teaching excellence. This position is multi-disciplinary and as such open to candidates with diverse scholarly backgrounds. This includes (but is not limited to) the different Management disciplines, such as Accounting, Finance, Information Systems, Marketing, Operations Management, Organizational Behaviour and Strategy, as well as candidates in related fields (e.g., Computer Science, Engineering, Neuroscience, Sociology, Urban Planning). The main criterion is that the research interest of the candidate must fit within the broad area of retailing. In addition, the applicant must also possess a strong methodological background (whether quantitative, qualitative or analytics). The expected August 2019; and the teaching load and salary are competitive.

BSRM is a newly endowed School that aims to be the world’s premier institution dedicated to the future of retail. It is a part of McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management, which has 80+ tenured/tenure-track professors and 105+ full-time academic staff, several of whom are interested in retail management-oriented research. BSRM plans to offer academic programs at all levels—Bachelor, Masters, PhD and Executive, as well to develop and leverage close connections with industry partners from all over the world. The School is also mandated to perform cutting-edge, integrative research that builds on expertise from across the Faculty, as well as from other parts of the University, such as Neuroscience, Computer Science, Public Health, Architecture, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Sustainability and Public Policy. Indeed, McGill is well-known for its research related to Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence with important applications in the area of retailing.

While the Desautels Faculty of Management is organized by traditional functional areas (e.g., Finance, Marketing, etc.), BSRM intends to break down disciplinary barriers. The goal is to envision and deliver a “real time” retail experience that equips the next generation of retail leaders with the tools, knowledge and skills required to meet the demands of the present retail industry, and above all to help shape its future. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the School’s research, teaching and outreach goals, while also being affiliated with her/his own area of expertise.

Qualifications: A Ph.D. degree in any field of management (i.e. Accounting, Finance, Information Systems, Marketing, Operations Management, Organizational Behaviour, Strategy) or a related field (e.g., Computer Science, Engineering, NeuroScience, Sociology, Urban Planning) is required. Applicants need to demonstrate potential for research and teaching excellence in aspects related to any facet of retailing (defined in its broadest sense), including topics such as online retailing, omni-channel retailing, retail pricing, retail atmospherics etc. BSRM is particularly interested in candidates with novel and integrative research programs and strong methodology expertise (quantitative and/or qualitative). The appointed individual will be expected to collaborate with industry practitioners and policy makers to tackle some of the challenges faced by the retail sector, including digitization, competition and globalization. Moreover, we are also interested in understanding how the retail sector can be used to address the grand challenges facing the world and enable sustainable consumption and healthier societies.
