Faculty Positions Now Available

To further enhance research and innovation, the student experience, and diversity on campus, Queen’s University is hiring 200 Tenured or Tenure-track faculty positions across all disciplines over a 5-year period.

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, racialized/visible minorities, Indigenous/Aboriginal Peoples, persons with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ persons.

  • The university has policies in place to support employees with disabilities, including an Accommodation in the Workplace Policy and a policy on the provision of job accommodations that take into account an employee’s accessibility needs due to disability.

  • All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, in accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, Canadians and Permanent Residents of Canada will be given priority.

  • The university will provide support in its recruitment processes to applicants with disabilities, including accommodation that takes into account an applicant’s accessibility needs.

Vaccination requirements

Queen’s University Policy Regarding Mandatory Vaccination Requirements for In-person University Activities requires ALL Community Members, including employees, to be Fully Vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to participating in any In-person University Activities.

This is a condition of employment for all employees who are required to attend University Property to perform their employment responsibilities. Individuals who cannot be vaccinated due to substantiated grounds (medical and other protected grounds under the Ontario Human Rights Code) may ask the University to validate the exemption and request an accommodation for these rare circumstances. If approved, they will be subject to additional health and safety measures.

Though many of the application deadlines noted below have passed, the competitions will remain open until the position has been filled.
