We have two job openings at the moment in the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development (SEED), at the University of Waterloo (Canada). We also have a Canadian Research Chair (CRC) Tier 2 position opening in the Faculty (which could be located in SEED).
All are full-time positions, with the deadlines for applications in mid-October 2018. One is for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position, and one is for an tenured Associate Professor; both of these are looking for someone with expertise in sustainable development (including CSR, business & the natural environment, etc.). The Chair position will be in Environment & Sustainability, with priority being given to an Indigenous person.

Across the University, about 24% of our undergraduate students are enrolled in a business program (including majors, and minors/options). Based on the QS 2018 world ranking, University of Waterloo ranks in the top 150 in Accounting and Finance and top 300 in Management and Business. In terms of Canadian rankings, according to the Maclean's analysis of business research, in 2016 Waterloo was ranked 4th in publications and 7th in citations, relative to other Canadian universities.
