Canada Research Chair - Digital Disruption & Organizational Transformation
Athabasca University

Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) Digital Disruption and Organizational Transformation

Athabasca University (AU), Canada's only open University, is dedicated to removing the educational, geographical, financial, social and cultural barriers that often limit access to post-secondary achievement. In doing so, AU provides access to university-level study to a broad range of students, transforming lives and enriching families and communities by increasing the equality of educational opportunity for adult learners worldwide.

The Faculty of Business is seeking an emerging world-class researcher with demonstrated potential for leadership and international recognition in the study of digital disruption and organizational transformation for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor to be nominated for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC). Applicants should have a PhD, or equivalent, in a related field with postdoctoral experience and/or prior faculty-level experience. The successful candidate will have an innovative and original program of research, proven leadership and collaborative research team building skills as well as capacity to receive external funding.

Digital technology has disrupted organizations in all sectors and has altered individual behaviour, business processes, industry structures, stakeholder relations as well as basic beliefs about what it means to do business. This upheaval has implications across all areas of management. As such, scholars from all academic areas of business management are invited to apply.

Job Requirements

The CRC program seeks to attract outstanding researchers to careers at Canadian universities.

Tier 2 Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars (i.e. within 10 years of attaining their highest degree, with consideration for career breaks) who have the acknowledged potential to lead in their field of research.
