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.

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 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 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.

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.
