The Shannon School of Business at Cape Breton University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Business Analytics at the rank of Assistant Professor to commence January 2019 (or shortly thereafter). The School delivers a variety of programs including BBA, BHTM, and MBA and teaching assignments will be at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels.
CBU is one of Canada’s youngest and most ambitious universities with a comprehensive set of liberal arts, science and professional programs and a unique commitment to community, economic development, aboriginal learning and research into many aspects of environment and culture. Currently home to approximately 3400 students, CBU’s vision of higher education allows students to pursue diverse fields of study in programs with national reputations in final year student satisfaction, faculty-student interaction and employability.
CBU delivers an authentic multicultural experience to all who become part of its academic community. Our faculty bring passion to their teaching and research, and we are known for our smaller class sizes as well as our friendly and inclusive culture. Strong community involvement and a spirit of entrepreneurship enhance CBU’s position in post-secondary education.
Candidates should have a PhD (or its equivalent), or be in the later stages of their PhD program. As well, candidates should have research and teaching interests in data analysis, data mining, database concepts and management, data visualization, and operations management. The School is seeking collaborative individuals who have the potential to perform sponsored research, enrich teaching, and contribute actively to the life of the school community.
CBU teaches programs on campus, off campus in locations across and outside of Canada, and on-line. The university and its partners will therefore provide opportunities for faculty members to teach in different modes in different locations as part of their regular workload. While these opportunities may not be available equally for all faculty positions in all programs, a clear willingness to teach in different modes and locations will be noted as part of your application.
Applicants are expected to demonstrate potential and commitment with regard to teaching, research/creative/scholarly activities and service to Cape Breton University, community and profession.
The union affiliation of this position is with the Cape Breton University Faculty Association.
Qualified candidates should send a letter of application quoting the reference number (BA1809), a complete dossier including curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness, a sample of scholarly writing and three current letters of reference (sent directly to CBU) to the Human Resources Department. Applications must be received by 4:00 p.m. 15 October 2018. Applicants who apply by email (pdf format preferred) will receive a return email confirming receipt.
Cape Breton University is strongly committed to fostering diversity within our community. We welcome those who would contribute to the further diversification of our staff, our faculty and its scholarship including, but not limited to, women, visible minorities, Aboriginal people, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity.
