Simon Fraser University – Three Canada Research Chairs (Tier 2)

In recognition of its commitment to Indigenous scholarship, SFU invites applications for THREE Tier 2 Canada Research Chairs (CRCs) focused on aspects of Indigenous Governance in three academic units: The Department of Indigenous Studies, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences; the Faculty of Education; and the Faculty of Health Sciences to begin between July 2021 and January 2022. These CRC appointments, through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) or the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), are intended for exceptional emerging scholars who have demonstrated excellence in research, teaching, and the potential to attract, supervise and mentor graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. They must possess the necessary qualifications to be appointed at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, which at SFU requires a completed PhD by the time of appointment. Appointment to these positions is contingent upon the applicants receiving a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair. Each CRC is tenable for five years and is renewable once.
