The Department of Marketing, Business Economics and Law at the Alberta School of Business, University of Alberta, invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position in business economics, with a research and teaching focus on either International Business or Natural Resources, Energy, and the Environment.

For appointments at the assistant professor level, candidates must have, or be close to completing, a PhD in an appropriate field, with demonstrated research and teaching potential; appointment in the latter case will be contingent upon the completion of the PhD by an agreed-upon date. Appointments at a more senior level—associate or full professor—may be considered depending on qualifications and experience. For an associate/full professor appointment, we require a PhD, and a high quality publication record in economics and business journals, accompanied by excellence in teaching. Proficiency in English is required.

The successful candidate will teach business economics at both the undergraduate and MBA levels, participate in the MBA and BCom programs, conduct research, publish in top tier economics and business journals, and provide service to the School’s academic activities.

The Alberta School of Business is one of the world’s leading institutions in business education and research. Our vision is "Leaders from Alberta for the World". Our mission is to excel and lead through research, teaching and external engagement. We are one of the largest business schools in Canada with 75 faculty members, 2000 undergraduate students, and 600 students in our MBA and PhD programs.

The province of Alberta has a strong economy and diverse landscapes. The city of Edmonton is a vibrant multi-cultural centre with over one million people that offers the benefits of an urban lifestyle combined with high-quality schools, varied restaurants, excellent theatre, reliable public transportation and ample opportunities for recreation.
