UNIVERSITY OF VICTORIA—The Peter B. Gustavson School of Business invites applications from talented scholars looking to fill a tenure track position at the Assistant/Associate Professor level in the area of Operations Management.


Scholarship and teaching at the Gustavson School are both strongly aligned around our four pillars: we seek to deliver a way of understanding business that is international, integrative, innovative and sustainable. In keeping with this focus, we are particularly interested in hearing from scholars with a research and/or teaching interest in the international aspect of Operations, and those who have the ability to teach global supply chain management.


Applicants for this position should have earned a PhD, have a record of teaching and research that is commensurate with their experience and be able to make a contribution to our new PhD program. Our interest is in attracting highly motivated researchers capable of publishing in top research journals to add to our already vibrant research community. Our emphasis on experiential teaching includes a mandatory co-op program for all students, international exchanges, and overseas co-op work opportunities. In line with this approach, a candidate’s business experience would be highly valued.


The University of Victoria is a medium-sized public institution, recognized nationally as one of the best comprehensive universities in Canada. The Peter B. Gustavson School of Business is one of the few North American schools that are accredited by both the European Federation of Management Development (EQUIS) and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). As well as having the university’s strong research and teaching community, Victoria offers an active cultural scene and easy access to all types of outdoor activities, and we enjoy a very moderate west coast climate. Victoria is ranked number two on Canada’s Best Places to Live 2011 survey produced by MoneySense Magazine.
