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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
