University of Western Ontario Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track) – Consumer Behavior

THE UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN ONTARIO

FACULTY OF SOCIAL SCIENCE

 

DAN Department of Management & Organizational Studies

 

Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track) – Consumer Behavior

Since 1878, Western University has been committed to serving our communities through the pursuit of academic excellence and by providing students, faculty, and community members with life-long opportunities for intellectual, social, and cultural growth.  We seek excellent students, faculty, and staff to join us in what has become known as the "Western Experience" - an opportunity to contribute to a better world through the development of new knowledge, new abilities, new connections, and new ways to make a difference.

The DAN Department of Management & Organizational Studies invites applications from exceptional early career researchers to fill a tenure track position in Consumer Behaviour. The DAN Department of Management & Organizational Studies is an innovative and rapidly expanding interdisciplinary department in the Faculty of Social Science (FSS) at The University of Western Ontario (UWO) with over 3,000 students enrolled. This unique department combines management studies with a strong foundation in the social sciences. Candidates demonstrating a commitment to working in an interdisciplinary environment will be preferred.

The Consumer and Organizational Behavior (COB) cluster focuses on the study of human behavior in consumption and organizational contexts, with a particular focus on being, doing, and influencing. This includes studying the antecedents, processes, and outcomes of consumer, employee, and leader behavior. Rather than viewing consumers and organizational members as having distinct roles, we take an interdisciplinary approach and study these entities as fulfilling both consumer and organizational roles, taking a social-psychological perspective to bridge the gap between consumer and organizational behavior disciplines. COB goes deeper than examining how people consume at home and behave at work; it is about understanding how such phenomena impact our lives, our state of being, and the broader social world. By studying the perspective of individuals, groups, and society, we develop research that benefits organizational, consumer, and employee welfare, and quality of life for all. For more information on the specific research topics currently addressed by DAN faculty, please see our website.

Candidates must have a PhD in Consumer Behavior, Marketing, or any Social Science discipline in which the focus of their research program fits any of the topics in the COB research 

cluster. Applicants must possess a strong record of scholarly research and publications in leading refereed journals, and evidence of excellent teaching ability, or evidence of potential in these areas (e.g., a stream of work-in-progress that has the potential to yield publications in quality journals). The successful candidates will be expected to maintain a strong research program, compete successfully for research funding, teach undergraduate courses in COB related topics (courses in Marketing and Consumer Behavior are of particular interest), and contribute to ongoing curriculum and program development including a forthcoming graduate program.

 

The successful candidate will be appointed in a Probationary appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor.   Salary will be commensurate with previous performance, qualifications and experience in accordance with the Collective Agreement. The anticipated start date is January 1, 2022, although the start date can be negotiated.

 

The University of Western Ontario is among the top-ranked research intensive universities in Canada. It is located in London, Ontario, a highly affordable and family friendly city of approximately 400,000. London is situated approximately half-way between Toronto and Detroit with excellent access to these centers by car, train, or air.

 

Interested candidates should send a curriculum vitae, sample publications, evidence of teaching performance, the names and contact information of three academic references a full-time faculty application    (http://www.uwo.ca/facultyrelations/pdf/careers/Faculty/Application-FullTime-Faculty-Position-Form.pdf)  to: Professor Geoffrey Wood, Chair, DAN Department of Management & Organizational Studies, The University of Western Ontario, via email to gwood23@uwo.ca, with a copy to Gloria Dawson gdawson@uwo.ca.

 

Prospective applicants can address informal enquiries to gwood23@uwo.ca.  Applications will be accepted until October 31, 2021 or thereafter until the position has been filled. Review of applications will begin after October 1, 2021.

POSITION DESCRIPTION

As part of UC Davis’ commitment to hire leading research faculty who have a strong commitment to teaching, research, and service, and who can address the needs of our increasingly diverse state and student population, the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Davis invites applications for an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) position in Personality and Individual Differences. We seek applications from individuals whose scholarship includes excellent research in any area of personality psychology; the scholarly significance and potential of a candidate’s research program is more important than their specific area of research.

As one of the country’s leading research institutions, UC Davis seeks candidates with exceptional potential for research, teaching, and a commitment to diversity and inclusion. The successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the barriers preventing full participation of members from historically underrepresented and marginalized student communities in higher education, including (but not limited to) underrepresented minorities, individuals self-identifying as LGBTQIA+, veterans, individuals with disabilities, economically disadvantaged groups, first-generation, and undocumented students. Successful candidates will help advance UC Davis’ goal of improving access and building an inclusive community for all marginalized communities. The successful candidate will also have a track record (calibrated to career stage) of teaching, research, or service activities addressing the needs of underrepresented minorities, and a clear vision of how their work at UC Davis will contribute to the University’s mission of serving the needs of our diverse state and student population. Candidates are requested to submit a statement describing (a) their track record of engagement and activity related to diversity, equity, and inclusion as well as (b) their plans for future engagement (see https://academicaffairs.ucdavis.edu/guidelines-writing-diversity-statement for guidance and information about the university’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion). This statement will be carefully read as a standalone document and should, therefore, include all relevant information related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, even if aspects are also discussed in other submitted materials.

Applicants must have a PhD by the time of appointment, an active research program relevant to the field of personality psychology, a strong commitment to quality teaching and mentoring, a commitment to diversity and inclusion, and the potential to attract (or an established record of attracting) extramural funding.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a research statement describing their current research and future research goals, a teaching statement describing their experience as well as beliefs and practices related to effective teaching, and a statement outlining their past and planned efforts to contribute to the diversity, equity, and inclusiveness of their academic community. The first round of review will focus on evaluating the research and diversity statements, which will be anonymized to reduce potential for bias based on identity. In addition, applicants should submit at least 3 letters of recommendation and up to 3 representative publications (or preprints). All application materials should be submitted electronically at: https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/JPF04383.

The start date for this position is July 1, 2022. The position will remain open until filled. Applications submitted by September 30th, 2021 will receive full consideration. Feel free to contact the Search Committee Chair, Dr. Richard W. Robins, at rwrobins@ucdavis.edu, with any questions about the search or position. The department and UC Davis are committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual-career couples and single parents. We are also interested in candidates who have had non-traditional career paths, who have taken time off for family reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academia. For information about benefits, potential relocation to Davis, career needs of accompanying partners and spouses, and other resources for new faculty, please visit: https://academicaffairs.ucdavis.edu/new-faculty.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment, UC Davis conducts a reference check on all first choice candidates for Academic Senate Assistant Professor or Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment, Steps 4, 5, or 6, or Acting Professor of Law positions. The reference check involves contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Davis requires all applicants for any open search for assistant professor to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If an applicant does not include the signed authorization with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete, and as with any incomplete application, will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists considered for Academic Senate Assistant Professor or Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment, Steps 4, 5, or 6, or Acting Professor of Law positions will be subject to reference checks.

The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status.
