DAN Department of Management and Organizational Studies

The DAN Department of Management and Organizational Studies invites applications
from exceptional early or mid-career researchers to fill four tenured or Probationary
(tenure track) positions in two research clusters: Consumer and Organizational
Behavior (COB) or Corporate Governance (CG). Positions will be filled in either
research cluster according to the most qualified applicants; four additional positions will
be filled the following year pending budgetary approval, resulting in a total of eight new
positions, four in each cluster. We are making a strong commitment to building capacity
and performance in these two research clusters: applicants must identify the cluster in
which their research fits, according to the position descriptions below.


The DAN Department of Management and Organizational Studies is an innovative and
rapidly expanding interdisciplinary department in the Faculty of Social Science (FSS) at
The University of Western Ontario (UWO) with over 3,000 students enrolled. This
unique department combines management studies with a strong foundation in the social
sciences. Candidates demonstrating a commitment to working in an interdisciplinary
environment will be preferred. FSS is the largest faculty at UWO with over 6000
undergraduates and 400 graduate students enrolled, and it is one of the largest and topranked
social science faculties in Canada. Close to one half of all FSS students are
enrolled in DAN’s undergraduate programs. Plans to offer a graduate program are
currently under development. We invite you to visit our website:


The Consumer and Organizational Behavior (COB) cluster focuses on the study of
human behavior in consumption and organizational contexts, with a particular focus on
being, doing, and influencing. This includes studying the antecedents, processes, and
outcomes of consumer, employee, and leader behavior. Rather than viewing consumers
and organizational members as having distinct roles, we take an interdisciplinary
approach and study these entities as fulfilling both consumer and organizational roles,
taking a social-psychological perspective to bridge the gap between consumer and
organizational behavior disciplines. COB goes deeper than examining how people

consume at home and behave at work; it is about understanding how such phenomena
impact our lives, our state of being, and the broader social world. By studying the
perspective of individuals, groups, and society, we develop research that benefits
organizational, consumer, and employee welfare, and quality of life for all. For more
information on the specific research topics currently addressed by DAN faculty, please
see our website.

Candidates must have a PhD in Consumer Behavior, Marketing, or any Social Science
discipline in which the focus of their research program fits any of the topics in the COB
research cluster. Applicants must possess a strong record of scholarly research and
publications in leading refereed journals, and evidence of excellent teaching ability, or
evidence of potential in these areas (e.g., a stream of work-in-progress that has the
potential to yield publications in quality journals). The successful candidates will be
expected to maintain a strong research program, compete successfully for research
funding, teach undergraduate courses in COB related topics (courses in Marketing and
Consumer Behavior are of particular interest), and contribute to ongoing curriculum and
program development including a forthcoming graduate program.

Rank and salary for all positions will be commensurate with previous performance,
qualifications and experience in accordance with the Collective Agreement. The
appointment is effective July 1, 2018.
