    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, 2020, or shortly thereafter.

    Applicants must have a PhD in management or a cognate discipline, 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, with 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. The position comes with undergraduate and graduate teaching responsibilities in strategic management.

    The successful candidate will also have a strong commitment to excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and to graduate student training and supervision. A commitment to excellence in teaching will be demonstrated through the statement of teaching philosophy, teaching accomplishments, and teaching dossier 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.


    The Rotman School of Management has a strong research oriented faculty that is supportive of serious scholarship and committed to the professional development of its faculty. Within the University of Toronto, the Area has close ties with the departments of Economics and Sociology. All Rotman Strategy Ph.D. students complete graduate level courses in at least one of these departments. The Strategic Management Area provides a stimulating and supportive research environment and a strong commitment to excellence in both research and teaching.

    Rotman is situated in the heart of Canada's corporate and financial centre, and the world's most diverse city. Rotman's core values reflect this diversity and as such, we have a preference for candidates with demonstrated experience and interest in promoting a diverse and inclusive research and teaching environment.
