Since opening in 1910, Mount Royal has embraced change in order to meet the needs of the people and community it serves. At Mount Royal students experience high quality education enhanced by smaller class sizes, personalized learning and a single-minded dedication to premier undergraduate learning. Mount Royal is known for its collegial working environment.
New faculty are hired into one of two work patterns. The teaching/scholarship/service (TSS) pattern has a focus on teaching with the requirement that the faculty member be involved in a research program as well as service to the Mount Royal community. The teaching/service (TS) pattern has a focus on teaching and service only. There is an option to change work patterns after tenure. For this post, we have a strong preference for hiring a candidate suitable for the TSS stream.
We are looking for someone to join our Human Resources team as we embark on the implementation of a new program focus. Mount Royal HR graduates are confident thought leaders that assist organizations in exploring possibilities, setting purpose, and driving human and organizational performance within dynamic work environments.
The successful applicant must be qualified to teach introductory and senior level human resources courses. Faculty in the TSS pattern are expected to establish a high quality research program. In addition, the individual should be prepared to maintain active liaison with industry partners or professional associations and be involved with course and program development.
A completed or close to completion PhD in Human Resources is required. Candidates should demonstrate excellence in teaching, with a minimum of two (2) years of experience in a post-secondary institution. Human-resource management experience will also be taken into account. As a new scholar, the ideal candidate will demonstrate a promising scholarship agenda; a holistic understanding of the human resources function would be an asset.
For further information, contact Patricia Derbyshire, Chair at 403.440.6397 or firstname.lastname@example.org
A complete dossier including curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching excellence, sample of scholarship outcomes (if applying for a TSS position), and the names and contact information for three (3) references should be submitted, quoting competition #8980ES to:
