Requirements for Recruiting and Nominating Canada Research Chairs

As of September 2018, The Canada Research Chair Program has implemented new institutional requirements as an update to the program’s Guidelines for ensuring a fair and transparent recruitment and nomination process (implemented in 2011) and which are being implemented as part of its Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan. 


Internal Competitions:

External Competitions

External Canada Research Chair postings at Queen’s University are included on the university’s Faculty Recruitment website, categorized by academic unit.  Academic units also employ a variety of strategies to ensure a diverse applicant pool, including posting to job boards and list serves of academic organizations of equity seeking groups, and ensuring that all postings are also hosted on Equitek, a national job board that proactively distributes employment postings to underrepresented demographics across Canada.
