Tenure-track position -- Finance, insurance or real estate

The Department of Finance, Insurance and Real Estate of the Faculty of Business Administration at Université Laval, an AACSB and EQUIS accredited university, invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in finance, insurance and real estate.


Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Finance or in a related field with a promising research program in finance and demonstrated teaching capabilities at the undergraduate, graduate (MBA, M.Sc., Ph.D.), and executive levels. Ph.D. candidates near completion of their thesis will be considered. Preference will be given to candidates with research and teaching interests in household finance, risk management and insurance, quantitative finance, and real estate, but all areas of finance, insurance and real estate will be considered. The normal teaching load is 6 hours per week for 30 weeks (2 classes per semester). This load is reduced for newly hired professors to facilitate the deployment of their research program.\

Compensation will be commensurate with the candidate's qualifications and experience. Université Laval offers internationally competitive remuneration, research support, reduced teaching loads for research active faculty, and relocation assistance.

French is the primary language used in teaching, but we also offer programs and classes in English. Non-francophones must show proficiency in French after at most three years.



Université Laval is one of Canada's leading universities. Among the top ten Canadian universities in terms of research, Laval traces its origins back to 1663, when Monseigneur François de Laval, the first bishop of New France, founded the Quebec Seminary with the authorization of the King of France, Louis XIV. A Royal Charter creating Université Laval was granted to the Quebec Seminary by Queen Victoria in 1852. A few years later, in 1878, Laval opened a second campus in Montreal to offer higher education teaching in this city. Laval’s “ Montreal branch ” became the University of Montreal in 1920. As Canada’s oldest university, Laval was the very first institution in North America to offer higher education in French.


The hiring process begins immediately and will continue until the position is filled. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply. Canadians and Permanent Residents will be given priority. Université Laval is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer.

Starting date:  As mutually agreed.
