Academic Vacancies

Two tenure-stream assistant professor positions

At the intersection of mind and action, Ryerson is on a transformative path to become Canada’s 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.  

Ryerson 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. In addition, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment in Canada, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, Indigenous peoples of North America, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or 2SLGBTQ+. Please note that all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, applications from Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.  

As an employer, we are working towards a people first culture and are proud to have been selected as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers and a Greater Toronto’s Top Employer for both 2015 and 2016.

The successful candidates will have completed a PhD in Economics (or expect to do so by December 2018). They will demonstrate an ability to contribute to both our undergraduate and graduate programs through high quality teaching and supervision of students, including teaching large introductory classes. They will be expected to conduct an independent research program yielding significant peer-reviewed publications, to attract external peer-reviewed research funding and to demonstrate a capacity for collegial service.
