The Department of Financial and Information Management in the Shannon School of Business at CBU invites applications for a tenure-track position in Finance at the rank of Assistant Professor. This position will commence July 2021 or shortly thereafter.

One of Canada’s youngest and most ambitious universities, CBU recognizes its location on Cape Breton Island as part of Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. CBU offers 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 5000 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.

The School is seeking candidates with demonstrated evidence of effective research and teaching in finance. Teaching courses will include core finance and upper-level electives.

A Ph.D. in Finance or a related field is required. Exceptional candidates near Ph.D. completion may be considered.

Applicants are expected to demonstrate potential and commitment regarding research, teaching activities, and service to Cape Breton University, community, and profession.

The union affiliation of this position is with the Cape Breton University Faculty Association.

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.
