About the Department of Management, International Business, Information and Supply Chain (MISC):
Our department is a collection of individuals interested in what
keeps the modern world functioning. While we are defined as academics in
supply chain, international business, strategic management and
management information systems we believe that we have a responsibility
as global citizens to try to make the world a better place now and in
the future. Our interests are broad but may be encompassed by two
primary themes: global citizenship and data-driven decision making. We
invite individuals interested in research topics related to these themes
to apply for this position. Examples of such topics include, but are
not limited to, humanitarian logistics, sustainable supply chains,
supply chain analytics, bottom-of-the-pyramid focused research with a
global focus, indigenous supply chain issues, supply chain transparency,
and international business as an enabler of improved human welfare.

Welcome to the BC Interior:
Thompson Rivers University is located in Kamloops,
British Columbia. Life in the sunny interior of British Columbia
provides immediate access to some of the most incredible outdoor
experiences Canada has to offer ranging from winter sports at Sun Peaks
Resort, to some of Canada's best mountain biking and hiking trails,
walking distance from TRU. Located between the coastal and Rocky
Mountains, Kamloops is within 30 minutes from hundreds of beautiful
freshwater lakes, and only 3 hours from Vancouver. With a relatively
mild winter and spectacularly warm and dry summers, Kamloops offers a
high quality of life. A city with less than 100,000 residents, it is
served by an airport, a hospital, a university, a WHL hockey team and
yet still maintains a small-town feel where one never commutes longer
than 10 minutes. It is a safe community to raise a family and maintains
reasonable housing prices.
TRU is committed to building and fostering an inclusive environment.
TRU continuously strives to increase the diversity of its faculty and
welcomes applications from all; including those who identify as
