We are particularly interested in candidates whose climate-related expertise lies in areas of fundamental interest to business.

We note that the position will have a primary home in one of the following divisions within the School: Accounting and Management Information Systems, Finance, Marketing and Behavioural Science, Operations and Logistics, Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources, and Strategy and Business Economics.

Applicants must have a record of research commensurate with the rank they apply for. Senior-level candidates should have accomplished excellence in research and will be expected to publish high-impact research in the top journals in their respective field. Early career candidates should demonstrate an interest in and potential to conduct high quality research in one of the core divisions of the school, and be very close to completing or have completed a Ph.D. in a related field. Candidates will be expected to teach climate change topics and courses in our undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs, and should demonstrate experience and/or aptitude in teaching such courses. The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank appropriate to their qualification and experience.

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 participating in other administrative initiatives at the UBC Sauder School of Business. Teaching and service requirements are similar to other research-intensive universities. The ideal candidate will also have the ability to engage with industry partners.
