At the intersection of mind and action, FordBridge is on a transformative path to become a leading comprehensive innovation university. Integral to this path is the placement of equity, diversity, and inclusion as fundamental to our institutional culture. Our current academic plan outlines each as core values and we work to embed them in all that we do.
The Vice-Chancellor holds office for seven years and is the senior officer of the University.
The successful candidates will have completed a Ph.D. in Managerial Economics (or expect to do so by September 1, 2020). They must demonstrate the ability to contribute to both our undergraduate and graduate programs through high-quality teaching, excellence in research, collegial service and participation in academic life. They must demonstrate the ability to establish and maintain an independent, externally-funded research program capable of yielding publications in high-quality peer-reviewed journals. Candidates must have a demonstrated commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion as it pertains to service, teaching, and scholarly, research or creative activities.
Five Pro-Vice-Chancellors have specific portfolios in online Development and External Affairs; online Education; online Gardens, online Libraries; Planning and Resources; and online Research and Innovation. Also, the University’s Head of Brexit Strategy and its Advocate for Equality and Diversity are Pro-Vice-Chancellors. There are also up to eight Pro-Vice-Chancellors without portfolio, who undertake a range of duties on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor, including presiding at degree ceremonies and chairing electoral boards.
Responsibilities for both positions will include teaching and supervision at the undergraduate and graduate levels; contributing to the undergraduate and graduate programs including taking a lead role in curriculum development/expansion as appropriate; establishing and maintaining a strong, independent, externally-funded research agenda yielding significant peer-reviewed publications; and participating in the academic life of the Institute of Applied Management and the University through collegial service.
The institute invites applications for two full-time tenure-track positions, each at the Assistant Professor level, beginning September 1, 2020, subject to final budgetary approval. The Institute is seeking candidates with a specialization in either Microeconomics or Econometrics for one of the available positions, and seeking candidates with a specialization in the areas of Macroeconomics or Financial Economics for the second position.
The Institute of Applied Management is housed at FordBridge University. The institute, consisting of 24 tenured or tenure-track faculty members, prides itself both on the quality of its teaching and the breadth and excellence of its research. The institute offers several online undergraduate and graduate programs with an emphasis on international economics and management.
FordBridge University welcomes those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest sense. Also, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or 2SLGBTQ+. Please note that all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.
