    The Operations and Logistics Division of the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver Campus) invites applications for one tenure-track faculty position. Although preference will be given to applications at the Assistant Professor rank, we will also consider applications at the Associate and Full Professor ranks. Applicants must have a record of research commensurate with the rank and a demonstrated successful experience in teaching. Senior-level candidates should have accomplished excellence in research in Operations Research/Operations Management. Entry-level candidates should demonstrate an interest in and potential to conduct high-quality research in Operations Research/Operations Management and be very close to completing or have completed a Ph.D. in a relevant area such as operations research/management, engineering, applied mathematics, statistics or other related areas. The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank appropriate to their qualification and experience.

Candidates at the senior level will be expected to provide leadership that will enhance the reputation of the Operations and Logistics Division and the School.
