The Peter B. Gustavson School of Business and the Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives invite applications for the Jarislowsky CAPI East Asia (Japan) Chair. The Chair will be at the rank of Professor in the Gustavson School of Business. The Chair will also be a member of, and play a key role in, the Centre for Asia Pacific Initiatives. The appointment is effective January 1st, 2012. East Asia (including Japan) focused scholars with an established reputation in their area of expertise, an established publication record, teaching experience, fluency in an Asian language, and a network of personal and institutional contacts in East Asian Studies are encouraged to apply. The Chair should have a good understanding of and practical experience working in Japanese and East Asian cultures and environments. The Jarislowsky CAPI East Asia (Japan) Chair complements CAPI’s two other chairs in Asia-Pacific Relations, namely Legal Relations and China.
The Jarislowsky CAPI Chair will be provided with 50% release time from regular teaching and administrative responsibilities. The Chair, in turn, is expected to develop and administer a CAPI program involving research, advisory and conference initiatives that attract third-party funding and connections with other universities and research institutes in Japan and elsewhere in the East Asian region.
The appointee will be expected to contribute to an already excellent working relationship between CAPI and the Gustavson School of Business while contributing substantially to his/her discipline, and to have a demonstrated active Asia-Pacific outreach program with a proven capacity for attracting external funding support.
The appointee will teach courses in cross-cultural Management and/or Marketing in the Gustavson School and be expected to participate actively in graduate student supervision. He/She will work to develop a program to educate students to attain thorough knowledge, understanding and appreciation of Asian cultures, so that they can work and perform effectively in this culture. The work of the Chair will be to prepare students for the cultural aspects of their international exchanges, cross-cultural experiences and international work placements. He/She will develop and deliver courses and programs to ensure cross-cultural competence in students and will develop best practices in cross-cultural education.
