    Hello GDO Colleagues

    ***Apologies for cross-postings***

    Smith School of Business at Queen's University (Kingston, Ontario, Canada) invites applications for a tenure-track Black or Indigenous Business Scholar position at the rank of Assistant Professor, with a preferred starting date of July 1, 2023.  In the instance that an exceptional candidate is identified, a tenured appointment at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor will be considered. Applications are welcome from any business discipline.

    Applicants must self-identify as Black persons from Africa or of the African diaspora (e.g., African and Africa descended people from the Caribbean, North America, Europe, or Latin America), or they must self-identify as First Nations, Inuit or Métis.

    In accordance with the University's Employment Equity Program and pursuant to the Ontario Human Rights Code (OHRC) Section 14, this selection will be limited to Black or Indigenous peoples. Candidates from Indigenous communities and the groups noted above are encouraged to self-identify. Recognizing that identities can intersect, Black and Indigenous people who also identify as women, persons with disabilities and 2SLGBTQ+ are encouraged to apply. In accordance with Canadian Immigration requirements Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.

    Our aim in narrowing this job advertisement to two very specific under-represented groups is to provide targeted opportunities as allowed by the OHRC as a special program for Black or Indigenous scholars to enrich our Smith community. Engaging under-represented scholars to share their work experiences and viewpoints with students and colleagues will help offer an authentically inclusive learning experience. It is also an opportunity to correct the historic underrepresentation at Smith of Black and Indigenous scholars.
