The DAN Department of Management & Organizational Studies invites applications from early or mid-career researchers for a faculty appointment in Human Resource Management (HRM).  Applications are invited from exceptional candidates at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in HRM.  The successful candidate will have demonstrated academic excellence based on productivity and impact in research in the area of Human Resource Management and may receive a tenured appointment at the rank of Associate Professor, or a probationary (tenure track) position at the rank of Assistant Professor.  Rank and salary will be commensurate with previous performance, qualifications and experience in accordance with the Collective Agreement.  The appointment is effective July 1, 2021.

DAN Management & Organizational Studies has an interdisciplinary ethos and aims to make a real difference in improving lives and providing a new generation of business leaders. DAN is highly academically selective, attracting the very best students from across Canada and around the world.  Further information may be found on our website: http://www.dan.uwo.ca.  Candidates must possess a PhD in Business, Management, Industrial Relations, HRM, or a cognate Social Science discipline, and present research interests should align with the broad study of Human Resource Management. For more information on the specific research topics currently addressed by DAN Management faculty, please see our website. 

Candidates considered for a Probationary (tenure-track) appointment must have a superior academic record and a demonstrated record of record of international standard scholarly research and publications in leading refereed journals, and evidence of excellent teaching ability.   Candidates considered for an appointment with Tenure must have an outstanding academic record of academic publications and significant teaching experience.  The successful candidate will be expected to maintain a strong research program including publishing in leading journals in HRM, successfully competing for research funding, teaching courses in areas such as HRM, strategy, employment relations and cognate fields, and contributing to ongoing curriculum and program development.  Involvement in professional associations, conference organization and track chairing, and service on editorial boards would all be considered recommendations, as would member/chartered/fellow status with a national HRM professional body (eg. HRPA in Canada).
