Queen’s University invites applications for the Canada 150 Research Chairs Program from exceptional internationally-based scholars and researchers, including Canadian expatriates, from across all disciplines.

Located in historic Kingston on the shores of Lake Ontario, Queen’s University is one of Canada’s leading universities, focused on promoting exceptional research and innovation of national and international distinction while providing a transformative learning experience. Research and innovation are core components of the mission of Queen’s University and serve as the cornerstone for providing the best possible educational experience for students, for training research leaders of the future, for creating a vibrant environment of inquiry, and for building partnerships with our local and global communities – including industry, governments, and other institutions. Consistent with our strategic vision, we seek to build our capacity for research and innovation through the recruitment of top-tier, internationally-based scholars.

Successful candidates will be outstanding scholars with a world class reputation and can be appointed to a tenure stream or a tenured position at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Full Professor in any discipline that is affiliated with an academic department at Queen’s University in the Faculty of Arts and Science; Faculty of Health Sciences; or the Faculty Engineering and Applied Science. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent final degree) and show a track record of demonstrated excellence in maintaining an outstanding externally-funded research program and in teaching and training of highly qualified personnel as evidenced in an exceptional curriculum vitae and exceptional letters of reference.

The University invites applications from all qualified individuals. Queen's is committed to employment equity and diversity in the workplace and welcomes applications from women, visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, and LGBTQ persons. Queen’s recognizes the value that diversity adds to the academic activities of the University and takes into account the diverse experiences of applicants and the many forms that scholarship can take. Candidates who may have had alternate career paths or career interruptions as a result of personal circumstances are encouraged to apply. As part of its commitment to employment equity and diversity, Queen’s University provides confidential support for relocation into our community.

Additional information about Queen’s University, which may be of interest to prospective faculty members, can be found at the Queen’s Faculty Recruitment page. Academic staff at Queen’s University are governed by a Collective Agreement between the University and the Queen’s University Faculty Association (QUFA).

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, in accordance with the terms of reference for the Canada 150 Research Chairs program, only researchers who are internationally-based at the time of the application (both working and residing outside of Canada), including Canadian expatriates, are eligible to the program. Researchers who are already at a Canadian institution are not eligible.

The University will provide support in its recruitment processes to applicants with disabilities, including accommodation that takes into account an applicant’s accessibility needs. If you require accommodation during the interview process, please contact Lori Stewart.

A complete application consists of a cover letter, a complete and current curriculum vitae (including a list of publications), and the names and contact information for three referees. Complete applications are to be directed via email to:

Office of the Provost, provost@queensu.ca

The first review of applications will begin on July 24, 2017. If you have questions about the Canada 150 Chairs program at Queen’s University, please contact research@queensu.ca.
