The Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University is recruiting a tenured professor in management for sustainability. Assistant Professors with an established record of research excellence through publication in top-tier academic journals and who possess a strong record for teaching and academic service are also invited to apply. Sustainability scholarship is highly diverse and in many cases interdisciplinary. The management for sustainability position at Desautels is therefore open to candidates from all academic areas of management (Accounting, Finance, Information Systems, Marketing, Operations Management, Organizational Behaviour, Strategy and Organization) as well as from adjacent disciplines (e.g. economics and sociology). While the recruitment process is cross-disciplinary, the successful candidate will be affiliated with a specific functional area. In addition to leading their personal research agenda, the incoming faculty member will lead the Managing for Sustainability programs at the BCom level. They will have the opportunity to collaborate within a vibrant community of students, faculty, alumni and management practitioners. They will energize and infuse their expertise into existing activities while initiating new institutional efforts in sustainability related to teaching, research and outreach. Whereas teaching is done in English, knowledge of French or a willingness to learn French is desirable. The position will begin as early as August 1, 2019.
