Canada will be investing heavily in renewable energy systems in Northern, Indigenous and remote communities over the foreseeable future, with a goal of achieving full energy security for these communities. We are seeking a dynamic and engaging scholar to join Canada’s leading research community on renewable energy development in Northern, Indigenous, remote and rural communities as a Centennial Chair in Community Energy Development. Centennial Chairs are created and funded by the University in areas of strategic importance and are intended to recruit and retain outstanding faculty with strong research profiles. The successful candidate will be appointed to a tenured or tenure-track position at a rank commensurate with qualifications (at either the assistant or associate professor rank), and the Chair will be awarded for a five-year term, renewable once.

The successful candidate should possess quantitative skills and capacity in modelling applications to understand the broader socio-economic impact of energy development in these communities. Experience working with communities to enhance the socio-economic potential of community energy development or community economic development is an asset. Applicants with relevant research experience in developing economy contexts, agricultural, Indigenous and/or rural communities, technology and change, environmental and energy economics, or in the resource sectors are encouraged to apply. The search committee will consider scholars from various disciplines including economics, engineering, environmental studies, economic geography, or other relevant disciplines. The Centennial Chair will establish the leading program of research and training in Canada to inform the socio-economic implications of this energy transition and to understand the value proposition for host communities.

The School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) is a premier site internationally for practicing use-inspired and community-engaged scholarship. Our faculty are committed to engaging Indigenous peoples and knowledge in research and teaching, and we emphasize hands-on experiential learning in our graduate programs. Our focus on community energy development will advance our ability to connect with other units on campus, strengthen the policy relevance of our research and contribute to a sustainability focused curriculum.

As a tenure-track faculty member in SENS, the successful candidate will be expected to establish a substantive, externally funded research program in applied community energy development with applications to rural and remote communities, especially Indigenous and Northern communities. With an important emphasis on the global energy transition and the new opportunities for local communities to develop their own energy projects through renewable energy, the research program is expected to adapt or develop models to measure the impact of local, renewable energy projects for sustainable economies, rural development, and community quality of life, among other issues. The successful candidate will also teach courses in the Economics of Community Energy Development and in Economic Valuation of Environmental Sustainability; advise graduate students in our MES and PhD programs, and a new Master’s program in Energy Security (under development); engage in community outreach activities aligned with the faculty member's research and teaching expertise; and, participate in broad-based university and departmental committee work and professional service.

· Demonstrated success or clear potential for obtaining competitively awarded funding from the Canadian Tri-Agencies (SSHRC, NSERC, CIHR), or similarly competitive national or international granting agencies will be ranked highly.

The University of Saskatchewan salary bands for the 2020-2021 academic year are as follows: Assistant Professor $96,301 to $115,723; Associate Professor $115,723 to $135,145.

The Questrom School of Business at Boston University anticipates an opening for a full-time lecturer to teach quantitative methods for business in the Questrom School of Business’ undergraduate and masters programs. Pending Provost budgetary approval, the anticipated start date for this faculty position is July 1, 2020.

Currently, Questrom requires its undergraduates to take three quantitative methods classes that cover probability, statistics (with a strong emphasis on multiple regression), optimization, and risk management modeling. Any candidate must be able to teach all three of these undergraduate required courses. Other quantitative courses the successful candidate might be asked to teach include undergraduate business analytics electives, MBA courses on quantitative methods, or courses in our master’s program in business analytics.

Full-time lecturers in the Questrom School have a standard teaching load of six sections per academic year, typically fulfilled by teaching three sections each in the fall and spring semester. As Questrom offers many sections of its core quantitative methods classes each semester, most lecturers are able to satisfy their teaching obligation with multiple sections of some or even all the courses they teach. Lecturers are also expected to perform some service through, for example, membership on school committees, participation in school functions (such as recruiting events), and advising student clubs.

The Questrom School of Business believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. To that, we are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive. The Questrom School of Business seeks to continue diversifying our faculty, student and staff ranks, recognizing that diversity of experience and thought deepens the intellectual endeavor.

Required Skills

Candidates must have demonstrated expertise in the application of quantitative methods in business obtained through some combination of academic work and business experience. A Ph.D. in a field related to the use of quantitative methods in business is desirable, but we will consider candidates with at least a bachelors degrees that can demonstrate sufficient expertise learned through experience applying quantitative tools in business. Experience with and mastery of Python or R, preferably both, is a requirement. Because we expect Questrom students to master the use of Excel, strong Excel skills are also essential.

The RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE) is a research institute co-founded in 2018 by Resources for the Future (RFF) and the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC). The Institute’s mission is to improve environmental, energy, and natural resource decisions through impartial economic research and policy engagement. The Institute is committed to being a central focal point for research insights and policy solutions within Europe, and connecting that work internationally. This is achieved by combining excellence in environmental and energy economics with the climate science and policy competences. EIEE has strong ties with a world-wide network of research institutions engaged in topics ranging from environmental research, climate change, economics, energy systems but also sustainability transitions and policy evaluation. This implies a very interactive, collaborative and interdisciplinary work environment and research experience.
