Jarislowsky CAPI East Asia (Japan) Chair
University of Victoria
The Peter B. Gustavson School of Business and the Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives invite applications from talented scholars for the Jarislowsky CAPI East Asia (Japan) Chair. The Chair will be appointable at the rank of a professor in the Faculty of Business. The Chair will also be a member of, and play a key role in, the Centre for Asia Pacific Initiatives (CAPI). The appointment is effective January 1st, 2019.
East Asia (including Japan) focused scholars with an established reputation in their area of expertise, an established publication record, teaching experience, fluency in an Asian language, and a network of personal and institutional contacts in East Asian Studies are encouraged to apply. The Chair should have a good understanding of and practical experience working in Japanese and East Asian cultures and environments. The Jarislowsky CAPI East Asia (Japan) Chair complements CAPI’s two other chairs in Asia-Pacific Relations, namely Asia-Pacific Legal Relations and China.
The Jarislowsky CAPI Chair will be provided with 50% release time from regular teaching and administrative responsibilities and a very generous research support package. The Chair, in turn, is expected to develop and administer a CAPI program involving research, advisory and conference initiatives that attract third-party funding and connections with other universities and research institutes in Japan and elsewhere in Asia.
The appointee will be expected to contribute to an already excellent working relationship between CAPI and the Faculty of Business while contributing substantially to his/her discipline, and to have a demonstrated active Asia-Pacific outreach program with a proven capacity for attracting external funding support.
The appointee will teach courses in the Faculty of Business and be expected to participate actively in graduate student supervision and education. The Chair will work to develop a program to educate students to attain thorough knowledge, understanding and appreciation of Asian cultures, so that they can work and perform effectively in this culture. Successful applicants will have an interdisciplinary research focus in one or more of the School’s areas of expertise – Sustainability and Social Responsibility, International Business, Innovation and/or Services Management. We are particularly interested in candidates who bring a global perspective to their teaching and research.
Applicants should send their full academic CV, samples of their work, details of their present research agenda, preferred teaching subjects and names and coordinates (including e-mail addresses) of three referees, to the Director, Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives by e-mail to email@example.com.
