Faculty Position in Operations Research, Operations Management or Transportation
The Operations and Logistics Division of the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver Campus) invites applications for up to three tenure-track faculty positions in operations research, operations management and transportation, with the possibility of an additional opportunity becoming available. Although preference will be given to applications at the Assistant Professor rank, we will also consider applications at the Associate and Full Professor ranks. Applicants must have a record of research commensurate with the rank and a demonstrated successful experience in teaching. Senior-level candidates should have accomplished excellence in research in operations research, operations management or transportation. Entry-level candidates should demonstrate an interest in and potential to conduct high-quality research in these fields and be very close to completing or have completed a Ph.D. in a relevant area such as operations research, operations management, engineering, applied mathematics, statistics, computer science, or other related areas. 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, master’s and Ph.D. programs, supervising Ph.D. students, as well as contributing to other teaching and administrative initiatives of the Operations and Logistics Division and the UBC Sauder School of Business. Candidates at the senior level will be expected to provide leadership to enhance the reputation of the Operations and Logistics Division and the School. Teaching and service requirements are similar to other research-intensive universities.
A completed application will include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a research statement, research papers (i.e., one or two recently published research papers or current working papers), and a teaching dossier or record of teaching effectiveness, if applicable. The applicant may include a statement of contributions to equity, diversity and inclusion. In addition, we need to receive three letters of reference (4 for the associate and full professor rank) sent directly from the letter writers. Applications must be emailed to ORRecruit@sauder.ubc.ca. The application deadline is September 21, 2023; however, applications may be considered after this date until filled. Subject to budgetary approval, the position starts July 1, 2024. Information regarding hiring is available on our website at: http://www.sauder.ubc.ca/Faculty/People/Faculty_Openings
Applicants to faculty positions at the Sauder School of Business are asked to complete the following equity survey. The link to the survey is https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aVtaMWjwsMEcO4l. Your participation is voluntary and anonymous. The information will not be used to determine eligibility for employment. The answers will be collated to provide data that can assist us in understanding the diversity of our applicant pool and identifying potential barriers to the employment of designated equity group members. This survey takes only a minute to complete. You may self-identify in one or more of the designated equity group members. 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.
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. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Kindly indicate your legalstatus to work in Canada.
