        Memorial University of Newfoundland
        Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences
        Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Northern Governance and Public Policy

        Position #VPA-ARTO-2016-002

        The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Memorial University of Newfoundland is undertaking an open search to recruit and nominate an accomplished scholar for a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Northern Governance and Public Policy. Please consult the Canada Research Chairs website for full program information, including further details on eligibility criteria (see: http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx#s5"). For this opportunity at Memorial University, the appointment will be at the level of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor. Those at the level of Assistant Professor should have qualifications that will warrant promotion to the Associate Professor level within one or two years of the nomination. The position may commence as early as July 2017. Salary will be competitive and commensurate with the qualifications of the candidate. In addition, for the duration of the chairship (5 years, renewable once for a further 5 years) the chair will receive a minimum of $75,000 per year in research funding and a reduced teaching load (2 courses per year).

        We are seeking candidates in the area of Northern Governance and Public Policy, and invite scholars with a strong record of research accomplishment in any relevant social science discipline to apply. Governance and public policy are broadly understood to include the study of formal and informal processes that regulate social, economic and cultural life in the North (e.g., multilevel governance, Aboriginal self-government, organization networks), as well as research bearing on salient policy challenges in Northern Canada (e.g., resource development, climate change, food security). Applicants should have a strong record of research in the North (Canada or elsewhere). The successful candidate will demonstrate an interest in developing, as part of their overall research agenda, a program of research in Labrador.

        The Canada Research Chairs program stands at the centre of a national strategy to make Canada one of the world’s top countries in research and development. Tier 2 nominees should meet the requirements for Tier 2 appointment as defined by the CRC program.

        The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. and have an excellent publication record in a field relevant to the Chair’s mandate. The candidate will be expected to work well in an interdisciplinary environment and have a record of public engagement and knowledge mobilization. In addition,

        • Tier 2 Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars (i.e., candidates must be not more than 10 years from award of Ph.D. at the time of nomination).

        • Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) may have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. Please contact CREAIT, CRC and CFI Services (cccs@mun.ca) for more information.

        Further information can be found at www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/home-accueil-eng.aspx". The successful candidate will work with the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and Memorial University in completing the Tier 2 CRC nomination.

        Memorial University is Newfoundland and Labrador’s only university, and plays an integral role in the educational and cultural life of the province. Offering diverse undergraduate and graduate programs to over 18,000 students, Memorial provides a distinctive and stimulating environment for learning.

Various initiatives within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences will provide an enriching context and support for the successful candidate (please see www.mun.ca/hss/), including active participation in Memorial’s COASTS. This university-wide initiative coordinates and augments the great deal of existing and emerging Cold Ocean and Arctic Science, Technology, and Society-related capacity at Memorial through strategic investment in infrastructure, programming, and collaboration with private, public, and other academic partners.
