Tier II Canadian Research Chair position, Design Thinking, Faculty of Business and Communications Studies – Mount Royal University

Design thinking is highly creative and is well-suited to addressing complex problems through challenging existing assumptions and creating innovative solutions.
Design Thinking scholars use this approach to further the theory and practice of their discipline. In the context of the CRC at Mount Royal University (MRU), a Design Thinking scholar will be a faculty member assigned to the appropriate department within the Faculty of Business and Communication Studies. However, the successful candidate will become a catalyst for cross-disciplinary scholarship.

Il fera partie d’un groupe dynamique d’étudiants, de professeurs, de diplômés et de praticiens de la gestion. Il enrichira de son savoir-faire les activités existantes et leur donnera un nouveau souffle, tout en mettant en place des initiatives d’enseignement, de recherche et de sensibilisation en matière de durabilité. L’enseignement se fait en anglais, mais la connaissance du français ou la volonté d’apprendre cette langue est souhaitable. Le mandat débute au plus tôt le 1er août 2019.

Dean Position, Faculty of Business Administration, Lakehead University

Dynamic, modern, and learner-centred, Lakehead University acknowledges all our students as valued leaders of tomorrow, whose education and success are most paramount to our institution. Both campuses in Thunder Bay and Orillia promise an enriching university experience: a blend of academic excellence and opportunity with a variety of social and recreational activities. Lakehead’s small-class environment balances theoretical learning with practical experience to give our students opportunities not found at other business schools. Lakehead students gain a comprehensive understanding of core business disciplines early on before specializing in a field of study – empowering them to succeed on their own terms.

Reporting to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic), the Dean of the Faculty of Business Administration is responsible for the overall management of the Faculty and serves as a strategic and collegial leader to faculty, staff, and students. The Dean contributes to the further development of the Faculty and its programs in research, teaching, and service through a keen understanding of what makes the Faculty both exceptional and unconventional: small classes, emphasized experiential learning, substantial regional impact, and a high degree of contact between students and faculty. The Dean leads the development of and articulates a clear strategic vision for the Faculty and serves as an active and visible ambassador, working closely with internal and external partners and stakeholders, including local business and Indigenous communities.

As the ideal candidate, you possess a PhD Degree in business administration or management, a DBA Degree, or another relevant terminal degree. You are a well-established scholar and a thoughtful, strategic, entrepreneurial leader with a successful academic administrative background. You are passionate about advancing connections with local and global business partners, and relationships with Indigenous partners, by developing informed education, research, and service strategies. You understand the value proposition for a small school with multiple campuses and have supported the development of high quality undergraduate and graduate programs, and you know how to develop and maintain a culture of intense research, scholarly, and creative activity. Your engaging, open communication style helps you build friendly community relationships and expand outreach and donation programs. You are committed to social justice, to diversity, to inclusion, and to collegial governance.
