Canada Research Excellence Chair in Migration & Integration

Posted: 2/6/2018 (Employment)

Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada, has been selected to nominate a prestigious Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Migration and Integration with a one-time investment of $10 million in funding over seven years. We are currently in the active search for a global research leader to nominate for this Chair position. Please see further details regarding the posting. Applications should be emailed to cerc@ryerson.ca and will be accepted until February 25, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.

Ryerson’s Centre for Immigration and Settlement is a leader in immigration studies, exploring migration, integration, as well as refugee and diaspora studies, and has a stellar track-record of creating knowledge that impacts policy and practices. The Chair will be particularly relevant in Ryerson, with its ethnically diverse faculty and student population, and based in Toronto, where immigrants make up more than half the population.

This is an exciting time to be in Canada, in Toronto, and at Ryerson University.  Ryerson University is on a transformative path as Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. Located in the heart of Toronto, one of the world’s most cosmopolitan, culturally and linguistically diverse urban centres, Ryerson’s high quality programs and scholarly, research and creative activities extend beyond the walls of the University. Longstanding partnerships with community, industry, government, and professional practice drive research and innovation that respond to real-world problems.

Contact cerc@ryerson.ca with questions you may have on the initiative and search.
