The Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto invites applications for a full-time tenure stream appointment in the Strategic Management Area. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and will commence on July 1, 2022, or shortly thereafter.

Applicants must have a PhD in management or a cognate discipline (e.g., economics, sociology, etc.), with a focus on strategic management or related area (e.g., entrepreneurship, international business, management of innovation) by the date of appointment or shortly thereafter and a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching.

We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and strengthen our existing strengths. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue innovative research at the highest international level and to establish an outstanding, independent research program leading to publications in top-ranked journals in strategy and cognate disciplines (e.g., Strategic Management Journal, Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal/Review, American Economic Review, American Journal of Sociology, and journals of similar caliber).

Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence which can be demonstrated by a record of publications in top-ranked and field-relevant journals or works in progress meeting high international standards, the submitted research statement, presentations at significant conferences, awards and accolades, and strong endorsements from referees of high standing.

The successful candidate will also provide evidence of excellence in teaching. Excellence in teaching will be demonstrated through the teaching dossier submitted with the application including a statement of teaching philosophy, teaching accomplishments, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations or evidence of superior performance in teaching-related activities (such as performance as a teaching assistant or course instructor, experience leading successful workshops or seminars, student mentorship, or excellent conference posters or presentations), as well as strong letters of reference, and strong performance during the on-campus presentation for short-listed candidates.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
