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.

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.

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. Teaching experience is desirable, but we will consider candidates who have not taught previously.

How to Apply

Interested candidates should not apply through the Boston University HR website. Candidates are encouraged to send application details to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/16258 and include the following:

  1. A cover letter stating interest and qualification
  2. A curriculum vitae

CALL OF INTEREST

POSITIONS AS RESEARCH FELLOW AT ITALIAN UNIVERSITIES:

University of Bologna, Ca' Foscari University, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano

Under the Italian PRIN Project entitled “Hi-di network econometric analysis of high dimensional models with network structures in macroeconomics and finance – PROT. 2017TA7TYC” funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, the Departments of Economics at the University of Bologna, the Department of Economics of the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and the Faculty of Economics and Management at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano are opening a call of interest for three positions as Research Fellow (one position for each university). The positions will be funded by the project up to 24 months.

The research project covers the following topics:

(i) Development of novel multivariate econometric models and methods able to deal with network effects and to take into account time varying relationships. Attention will be paid on how latent factors drive economic systems and are subject to instability. Their roles will be studied and compared in the pre- and post-coronavirus era.

(ii) Analysis of interconnected networks: either physical or intangible networks, observed or estimated. Results will expand academic knowledge on statistical modelling of network event data in a broad range of areas including, but not limited to, social media information diffusion, economic/financial crises contagion and epidemic/disease spread phaenomena.

(iii) Economic impact of uncertainty: uncertainty is expected to act as a key driving factor in the aftermath of the covid-19 shock and the focus will be also on the policy actions necessary at the macro level to offset the economic consequences of a shock of size never experienced by world economies after WW2.

Interested researchers can express their willingness to apply not later than 31st May 2020. Applications should include the CV of the candidate a short research proposal related to the topics covered by the project, and the indication of the University where the research activity will be carried out.
