Canada Excellence Research Chairs
Two New Chairs for Queen's
Queen’s received two of the 11 available Canada Excellence Research Chairs (CERC), each of which is worth $10 million over seven years. CERC holders are among the world’s most accomplished researchers.
The CERCs build upon a foundation of research excellence at Queen’s, positioning Queen’s at the forefront of innovative research. The new research chairs at Queen’s will be in the areas of particle astrophysics and geofluids in sedimentary basins. The holders of those chairs will be named at a later date.
