The Tier 2 Canada Research Chair is tenable for five years and may be renewable for a second term. Interested applicants are invited to review the initial appointment and chair renewal details of the CRC Program.

Simon Fraser University is an institution whose strength is based on our shared commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the pursuit of decolonization, indigenization and reconciliation. Diversity is an underlying principle of our Strategic Vision, which pledges SFU to “foster a culture of inclusion and mutual respect, celebrating the diversity reflected among its students, faculty, staff, and our community.” SFU is committed to ensuring that no individual is denied access to employment opportunities for reasons unrelated to ability or qualifications.

For the past 12 years, UNBC has placed in the top three in its category in the annual Maclean’s university rankings, the only University of its size to achieve that feat. UNBC also recently placed among the top four per cent of higher education institutions worldwide by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
