    Qualifications and Education Requirements:

    Candidates who have already earned a Ph.D. must have done so in a related discipline (e.g., organizational behaviour, management, strategy, international business, entrepreneurship, organizational theory, sociology, psychology). The ideal candidate with a Ph.D. will have an experience-appropriate record of research publications in high quality, peer-reviewed journals, evidence of effective teaching, and clear promise of pursuing an interesting and innovative research agenda. Applicants demonstrating outstanding potential, both as a researcher and a teacher, who are doctoral students and plan to have completed the requirements for their Ph.D. (also in a related discipline) by December 2024 will also be considered. Preference will be given to candidates interested in research and teaching on sustainability; entrepreneurship/innovation; equity, diversity, and inclusion; or AI/analytics.  However, all applicants will be considered.

    McGill University is an English-language university where most teaching and research activities are conducted in the English language, thereby requiring English communication both verbally and in writing; but knowledge of French or a willingness to learn French is desirable.
