UNIVERSITY OF VICTORIA' The Peter B. Gustavson School of Business invites applications from talented scholars to fill a Canada Research Chair (CRC) tenure-track position at the Associate Professor level in the area of the Global Economy.

We encourage applicants with a background in International Business to apply ' especially those with a focus on global strategy and a special interest in emerging market economies. But we also welcome applications from scholars with other interests related to the Global Economy.

Scholarship and teaching at the Gustavson School are strongly aligned around our three areas of specialization: International Business, Entrepreneurship and Service Management. Our faculty are recognized research leaders and we seek to complement and extend our research program with a gifted scholar who has the ability to publish in top management journals and contribute to our PhD program focused on International Organization and Management.

Our approach to learning is international, integrative, innovative, and sustainable. Therefore, we are interested in applicants with a global and interdisciplinary orientation. The experiential dimension in our academic programs includes a mandatory co-op program for all undergraduate students, international exchanges, and overseas co-op work opportunities. In line with this approach, a candidate's business experience would be highly valued, as would international experience.
