Tenure-Stream Faculty Position

The University of Saskatchewan values diversity, and Aboriginal engagement is a strategic priority. The Edwards School of Business is committed to the successful recruitment and retention of Aboriginal students, staff and faculty.  We are actively seeking an Aboriginal person for a tenure-stream faculty position effective July 1, 2016. 

The successful candidate will be appointed into one of the following areas: Accounting, Finance and Management Science, Human Resources and Organizational Behaviour, and Management and Marketing.  The most qualified candidates with expertise in one or more of these areas will be considered.  In addition to building links with the Aboriginal community, the successful candidate is expected to play an important role in recruiting and supporting Aboriginal students in the School of Business.  Fluency in a First Nations language local to the area would be considered an asset.

Consistent with its goal of achieving business school accreditation, Edwards will recruit those individuals whose academic training and/or professional activities clearly align with our recruitment standards.  Candidates must satisfy any one of the following faculty categories:

  • Scholarly Academics sustain their currency and relevance through academic scholarship  and related activities.  Candidates would require a doctoral degree in an academic area clearly linked to the field in which they are expected to teach.
  • Practice Academics sustain their currency and relevance through professional engagement and industry interaction.  Besides holding a doctoral degree in an academic area clearly linked to the field in which they are expected to teach, the candidate would have undertaken substantive consulting, linkages to practice, or other forms of professional engagement.
  • Instructional Practitioners must have initial academic preparation (including a graduate degree), professional experience and ongoing professional engagement.  Their professional experience at the time of hiring must be significant in terms of duration and level of responsibility, and clearly linked to the field in which the candidate is expected to teach.  For those faculty teaching undergraduate courses, at least three years of full-time work experience would be required.  At least five years of full-time employment experience would be expected for those individuals assigned to teach in graduate programs.  Professional engagement activities must be substantive and sustained at levels that support currency and relevance for Edwards’ mission.”

All candidates for the scholarly academic and practice academic categories must hold or be very near completion of a Ph.D.  Candidates for the instructional practitioner category must hold a relevant master’s degree.  The successful candidate will be appointed at an Assistant/Associate/Full professor rank and the salary bands for these positions are as follows: Assistant Professor $90,796 - $109,108; Associate Professor $109,108 – $127,420; Full Professor $127,420 - $148,784. 

This position includes a comprehensive benefits package which includes a dental, health and extended vision care plan; pension plan, life insurance (compulsory and voluntary), academic long term disability, sick leave, travel insurance, death benefits, and employee assistance program, a professional expense allowance and a flexible health and wellness spending program.
