development of the next generation of creative leaders.
Candidates possessing a PhD in a relevant field completed by July, 2018

peer-reviewed dissemination will be considered. A track record of
professional practice and/or experience in the creative industries will
be an asset. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a dynamic,

globalization, entrepreneurship and investment, governance and
regulation, work and labour, the impacts of technological change, and so on.

University where appropriate. Our faculty are also expected to provide
spirited, collegial service to the School, FCAD and the University.
Candidates must have a demonstrated commitment to upholding the values
