Federal government has launched new program. Deadline to apply to U of M is August 4, 2017

The University of Manitoba is seeking applicants who currently hold academic/research appointments outside of Canada to be nominated for Canada 150 Research Chairs (up to 6 positions) in areas of research strengths highlighted in the University of Manitoba’s Strategic Research Plan.

All Chairs are subject to review and final approval by the Canada 150 Research Chairs Secretariat.

If successful at obtaining a Canada 150 Research Chair, the candidate will be appointed to a full-time tenured position at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor, beginning April 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Applicants must be exceptional scholars who will enhance Canada’s reputation as a global centre for science, research and innovation excellence.

During the seven-year term of the Canada 150 Chairs, the selected candidates will have 50 per cent of the normal teaching load in the unit to which they will be appointed.
