University of New Brunswick

Location: New Brunswick

The University of New Brunswick (UNB) is seeking expressions of interest from outstanding international researchers currently living and working outside of Canada, including expatriates, to fill one or more newly-created Canada 150 Research Chair positions. CRC 150 positions will be full-time, tenure-track appointments at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor, with an anticipated start date after the results are announced in December 2017. Salary and rank will align with the selected candidate(s)’ qualifications and experience. Applications from all fields will be accepted.

UNB has two beautiful campuses, one in Fredericton and one in Saint John, New Brunswick, and, founded in 1785, is the one of the oldest universities in Canada. UNB performs world-class research both within Canada and internationally, and offers graduate and undergraduate degrees in more than 60 disciplines. More information about UNB can be found at

The Canada 150 Research Chair program will add to UNB’s existing research strengths and build capacity in key areas of interest. The successful candidate(s) will be exceptional scholars with an established international reputation supported by a record of high scholarly achievement, productivity, and impact as evaluated through: peer-reviewed publications, peer-reviewed research projects, research and knowledge translation activities, the development of HQP training programs, and endorsements by leading scholars in their field. Preference will be given to candidates whose research goals and expertise align with UNB’s Strategic Research Plan and the Academic Planning of the hiring unit.

Please send Expressions of Interest by email to the Dean of the appropriate faculty by August 14th and include “Canada 150 Chair” in the subject line. Your Expression of Interest package should include:

a cover letter describing your current and planned research program, how it fits with the UNB Strategic Research Plan, past achievements, and relevant research history;
a complete Employment Equity Self-Identification Questionnaire;
a detailed CV;
a 100-word summary of your research interests and achievements;
names and addresses of at least 8 referees who are not in a conflict of interest, as defined in the CRC 150’s Conflict of Interest Policy.

The University of New Brunswick recognizes that not every career path is linear, and that past career interruptions do not necessarily reflect on the quality of an applicant’s work; applicants are encouraged to include an explanation of the impact any career interruptions may have had on their research history in their cover letter. This information will be taken into account during the evaluation process.

The University of New Brunswick is committed to fostering diversity within our community and developing an inclusive workplace that reflects the richness of the broader community that we serve. The University welcomes and encourages applications from all qualified individuals who will help us achieve our goals, including women, visible minorities, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of any sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression
