Position: Lecturer/Assistant/Associate or Full Professor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation
As a signatory of the Scarborough Charter on Anti-Black Racism and Black Inclusion, Dalhousie has committed to taking decisive action to recruit Black scholars to the university and to employ best practices to support their retention and advancement. This commitment is expressed in our Strategic Plan’s second pillar, Inclusive Excellence. In keeping with these commitments and our institutional drive and obligation to enrich our research, teaching, and learning environment and community engagement, Dalhousie invites applications for the below position.
This opportunity is part of a cluster hiring initiative supported by the Dalhousie Diversity Faculty Award (DDFA) program. In keeping with the principles of employment equity, the DDFA program aims to correct historic underrepresentation. This initiative will support inclusive excellence by appointing 5 Black scholars to the university across multiple disciplines. Cluster hires promote interdisciplinary collaboration, while creating communities of support for scholars from underrepresented groups. These new scholars will find opportunities for scholarly contributions, collaboration, and support as Fellows of the newly established Black Studies Research Institute and will contribute to our emerging transdisciplinary program in Black and African Diaspora Studies (BAFD).
Further information about this initiative may be found here https://www.dal.ca/dept/senior-administration/provost-vp-academic/inclusive-hiring.html.
The Faculty of Management at Dalhousie invites applications for a probationary tenure-track, tenure-track or tenured appointment at the rank of Lecturer, Assistant, Associate or full Professor in the areas of Entrepreneurship and Innovation. We are especially interested in applications from scholars whose work will advance teaching, research and innovation-based extra-curricular activities aligned with the Faculty’s inclusive innovation mandate, which aims to service graduate and undergraduate students university-wide. Applicants will also have the opportunity to participate in Dalhousie’s Black Studies Research Institute and to teach in Dalhousie’s new major in Black and African Diaspora Studies.
The applicant must have a Masters degree in a relevant discipline and be committed to completing a PhD in a relevant discipline, or already have a PhD. Applicants who do not yet have a PhD may be offered a deferred start date in order to complete their PhD before taking up the position. This deferral also includes the possibility of a limited-term appointment at a lower FTE during PhD completion. These details are open to negotiation and to the best approach for both the successful candidate and the Faculty of Management. Applicants should have an outstanding academic record, a record of scholarly engagement, and a commitment to teaching excellence (or demonstrated teaching excellence for applicants already holding an academic appointment).
The Faculty of Management has a long history of providing a world-class education and supporting innovative research leaders. A leader in experiential and work-integrated learning, we’re focussed on being responsive to the world around us. Our research is relevant not just in our core areas, but also stretches across the University to fields like health, psychology, humanities, engineering, law, computer science, oceans, and agriculture. We are an inclusive community driven by curiosity, integrity, and discovery. We welcome and celebrate diverse perspectives.

Dalhousie University is located in Nova Scotia, Canada (Mi’kma’ki) with four campuses in Halifax and Truro, and satellite locations in Yarmouth and Saint John, New Brunswick. As Atlantic Canada’s primary research-intensive university and a member of the U15 Group of Canadian Universities, our 13 academic Faculties expand understanding through teaching excellence and a drive for discovery that results in more than $214 million in research funding each year.
Each year, Dalhousie welcomes almost 21,000 students from more than 115 countries around the world. A diverse population of Black students call Dalhousie home, including those from African Nova Scotian, Black/African Canadian, and international communities. The United Nations recognized African Canadians as a distinct group and Dalhousie acknowledges African Nova Scotians as a distinct people who have shaped the province and the university for centuries. In 2018, Dalhousie launched the African Nova Scotian Strategy, which was then further updated in 2021 through the work of the strategy’s working group, which includes Dalhousie’s Director of African Nova Scotian Community Engagement. The Strategy is aimed at ensuring sustainable initiatives that support African Nova Scotian students, staff, and faculty members.
Dalhousie has a strong history of introducing ground-breaking initiatives that have created many opportunities for Black students including the Indigenous Blacks & Mi’kmaq Initiative at the Schulich School of Law and Promoting Leadership in Health for African Nova Scotians program. The university has also developed strong ties to several organizations serving that community, for example to the African Canadian Services Branch of the Department of Education – the only such branch in Canada serving Black students in K-12, to the Delmore Buddy Daye Learning Institute and to the Afrocentric Math cohort at Auburn High school.
In 1970, Dalhousie established the Transition year Program (TYP), which provides opportunities for individuals who may face barriers to post-secondary education to prepare for all aspects of academic life and gain access to the university. Nearly two decades ago, Imhotep’s Legacy Academy was established, an innovative university-community partnership designed to create pathways into STEM for students of African descent.
Dalhousie established the James R. Johnston (JRJ) Chair in Black Canadian Studies in 1991 which was at the time, the only endowed Black Studies Chair at a Canadian university. The current Chair, Dr. OmiSoore Dryden, recently established the Black Studies Research Institute (BSRI), a pan-university institute centering transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary research in Black studies. The BSRI will intersect closely with the university’s minor in Black and African Diaspora Studies, developed by former JRJ Chair Dr. Afua Cooper, and the university is now working on a proposal for a full degree program, the development of which is being championed by members of Dalhousie’s Black Faculty and Staff Caucus and supported by senior leaders across the university.
Dalhousie was also the first in Canada to join the Universities Studying Slavery group of institutions, out of which the Lord Dalhousie Report was published. Recommendations led to the Sankofa scholarships, renaming of streets to reflect the Black contribution to Canada and a concerted plan in our international strategy to form even more meaningful educational partnerships with the Caribbean.
As a signatory of the Scarborough Charter, and in keeping with these long-standing institutional commitments to recruiting and supporting Black faculty, staff, and students across the university, Dalhousie is now in an excellent position to support this cluster hiring initiative and candidates will enter a Faculty and university that has demonstrated outstanding and unique support for Black faculty and students.
