Canada 150 Research Chairs, McMaster University
McMaster University is seeking outstanding, internationally-based researchers (including Canadian expatriates) for consideration as Canada 150 Research Chairs nominees.
The Canada 150 Research Chairs program will invest $117.6 million to enhance Canada’s reputation as a global centre for science, research and innovation excellence, in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary. It will provide Canadian universities with a one-time investment to attract top-tier, internationally based scholars and researchers to Canada.
Only researchers who are internationally based at the time of the application (both working and residing outside of Canada), including Canadian expatriates, are eligible for the program. Researchers who are already at a Canadian institution are not eligible. Please consult the Canada 150 Research Chairs website (http://www.canada150.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/) for full program information, including further details on eligibility criteria.
Founded in 1887, McMaster University is one of only four Canadian universities consistently ranked in the Top 100 in the world. Home to more than 70 research centres and institutes, McMaster is comprised of six faculties: the DeGroote School of Business, and the Faculties of Engineering, Health Sciences, Humanities, Science, and Social Sciences. A medical-doctoral, research-intensive university, McMaster is dedicated to teaching, learning and service. With a total full-time student population of close to 28,000, McMaster welcomes students from 98 countries as well as Canada.
McMaster's main campus, located in the Westdale neighbourhood of Hamilton, Ontario, is comprised of 300 acres of scenic property at the western end of Lake Ontario, between Toronto and Niagara Falls. Our 30-acre central core is designated for pedestrians and bicyclists. Nearby attractions include Cootes Paradise, the Bruce Trail, the Waterfront Trail, the Royal Botanical Gardens, and the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
McMaster values a diverse community and encourages applications from highly qualified candidates with skills and abilities that will contribute to the values of equity, diversity and inclusivity in research, teaching and the workplace. McMaster has a strong commitment to employment equity and encourages applications from women, persons with disabilities, Indigenous persons, members of racialized communities and LGBTQ-identified persons. We also appreciate that these identity positions do not occur in isolation from one another.
Candidates are asked to submit their applications to one of our six Faculties.
