CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
CANADA RESEARCH CHAIR - TIER 2
IN QUEBEC STUDIES
Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) is calling for applications from candidates in history or a related discipline for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in the field of Quebec studies. The person sought will complete and strengthen the Centre interuniversitaire d’études québécoises [Interuniversity Quebec Studies Centre] (CIEQ) team and will make a remarkable contribution to the study of the major transformations Quebec has undergone since the New France period, considering the main analysis categories which are space and time. Three research topics are prioritized: people (populations and living environments); resources (livelihoods and strategies); regulations (standards, usage and leeway). People with experience on other geographical locations than Quebec must prove, in addition to their expertise in one of the aforementioned topics, their ability to contribute to the field of Quebec studies in the near future. Their contribution to the development of digital research infrastructures (historical microdata, geographical information systems, etc.) will also be taken carefully into account.
Canada Research Chairs
Tier 2 Canada Research Chairs are awarded after a thorough assessment process to exceptional emerging researchers. Candidates who wish to obtain a Tier 2 Chair must have held a Ph.D. for less than 10 years when they submit their application to the Canada Research Chair Program (April 22, 2019). Those who have held a Ph.D. for more than 10 years (and whose careers were interrupted because of maternity leave, parental leave or a prolonged medical leave among others) may have their eligibility examined using the Tier 2 Justification Assessment form from the Canada Research Chair Program. Please contact UQTR’s Deanship of Research and Creation to obtain more information regarding the justification process (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion
UQTR is determined to offer a workplace that is fair, diversified and inclusive, which is essential to the development of knowledge and innovative technology. That is why UQTR is committed to complying with federal policies regarding non-discrimination and equity in employment. The University specifically encourages women, members of visible minorities, Indigenous persons and persons with disabilities who have the required qualifications to present their application. Adaptation measures can also be offered to persons with disabilities according to their needs.
Those who wish to apply are invited to submit their application before December 14, 2018. The application must include: a curriculum vitae, a brief description of the research program that will be developed during the Chair (3 pages); several examples of significant contributions to their research field (articles with a reading committee, monographs, etc.), a letter of motivation stating how the candidate’s profile corresponds to the Canada Research Chair Program’s requirements, as well as the names of three referees who are willing to write a letter of recommendation in their favour. The candidates may also submit with their application any statements regarding special circumstances that caused a slow-down or interruption in their research activities. UQTR will take these special circumstances into account when examining the applications. All documents required shall be submitted in a single PDF document using the online self-disclosure statement form available at: http://www.uqtr.ca/CRC_Declaration_volontaire.
Each application will first be evaluated by a committee responsible for identifying applicants that adequately meet the University’s selection criteria as well as that of the Canada Research Chair Program. The applications retained will then be submitted to a committee who will ensure that UQTR’s rules and objectives regarding equity, diversity and inclusion matters have been taken into consideration. Since granting of the position is conditional to approval by the University Department, candidates will then have to submit to the hiring process for the department involved. The successful candidate will be invited to present a complete application to the Canada Research Chair Program, and successful Chair recipients will be granted a tenure-track professorial position.
