The University of British Columbia
The Strategy and Business Economics (SBE) Division of the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver Campus) invites applications for one tenure- track position at the Assistant Professor level. In order to strengthen the Division’s core research areas, we are inviting applications exclusively from researchers with a dual specialization in the areas of (i) urban & real estate economics and (ii) industrial organization, with research applications rooted in micro-economic modelling and rigorous empirical methodology that help inform business strategy and/or public policy.
Applicants must have a record of research commensurate with the rank and a demonstrated successful experience in teaching. Entry level applicants should demonstrate an interest in and potential to conduct high quality research in a related field and be very close to completing or have completed a Ph.D. We welcome applications from outstanding candidates who demonstrate a strong interest in applying economic insights to decision- making in businesses.
Duties include developing and maintaining an active research program aimed at making a significant contribution to the profession, teaching in the Undergraduate, MBA and Ph.D. programs, supervising Ph.D. students, as well as contributing to other teaching and administrative initiatives of the Strategy and Business Economics Division and the Sauder School of Business. Teaching and service requirements are similar to other research- intensive universities.
The Division consists of economists who conduct research in areas such as international trade, industrial organization, public policy, innovation, and urban and real estate economics. More information about the SBE Division can be found on its web site at http://tinyurl.com/zm9ekck. The SBE Division collaborates with the Vancouver School of Economics in a joint Bachelor of International Economics program.
A completed application will include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, one or two research papers, a record of teaching effectiveness, and three letters of reference. The deadline for applications is Friday, November 24, 2023; however, applications may be considered after this date until the position is filled. Applications should be submitted online through https://econjobmarket.org/ and will be evaluated by all members of the Division’s Recruiting Committee. First-round job interviews will be conducted via Zoom. Following these interviews, candidates who move to the final round of consideration will be asked to visit UBC in person.
Subject to budgetary approval, the position starts July 1, 2024. UBC hires on the basis of merit and is strongly committed to equity and diversity within its community. We especially welcome applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to productively engage with diverse communities. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.
Applicants to faculty positions at the University of British Columbia are asked to complete the following equity survey: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aVtaMWjwsMEcO4l. Your participation is voluntary and confidential. The information will not be used to determine eligibility for employment. The answers will provide data that are fundamental to assist UBC Sauder Business School (Dean’s Office) in understanding the diversity of our applicant pool and identifying potential barriers to the employment of under-represented groups. The survey takes only a few minutes. You may decline to identify in any or all of the questions by choosing “Prefer not to disclose.” Thank you in advance for your participation.
We thank all applicants for their interest. Only those candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit, or Indigenous person.
