To promote diversity, U of T puts out special call for Canada Research Chair applications – U of T News

The University of Toronto has put out a special call for applications to the Canada Research Chair program in an effort to recruit more chairholders in underrepresented groups – a move in keeping with the university’s own long-standing commitment to excellence and equity, and with federal priorities for the program.

U of T is inviting applications to the Canada Research Chair program from faculty who self-identify in one or more of four federally designated groups: women, visible minorities or persons of colour, persons with a disability and Indigenous people.

The call is open to full-time faculty who hold an appointment as an assistant, associate or full professor in the tenured/tenure-stream, clinical or status-only categories at U of T. Those in the clinical or status-only categories must be employed by an affiliated institution. Individuals can also apply if they have a firm offer of employment in one of these categories at the university or its affiliated institutions that takes effect by July 1, 2019.
