The Faculty of Nursing at the University of Alberta seeks to nominate a Canada Research Chair in Chronicity. We are seeking a PhD prepared registered nurse with a strong program of research relating to chronicity.
The Canada Research Chairs Program (http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/index-eng.aspx) was established by the Canadian government to foster world-class research excellence. Candidates should be emerging researchers (active researchers in
their field for fewer than 10 years at time of nomination) with clear potential to achieve international recognition as leaders in their fields in five to ten years. The appointee would be expected to develop and lead a program of highly credible, relevant and innovative focused research that will contribute to capacity building in the Faculty and enhance our partnerships with the health care system.
The Chair's contribution to capacity building will involve some undergraduate and graduate teaching, graduate student research training, mentoring of colleagues, attracting future researchers, and the development of collaborative initiatives.
This is a tenure track position with a competitive salary commensurate with qualifications, a comprehensive benefits package, significant ongoing research support, and relocation assistance. Appointment to the Faculty can be made prior to nomination to the Tier II Chair position. The date of appointment to the Faculty will be July 1, 2017, or as mutually acceptable.
Nominations for Tier II Chairs can be submitted in April and October. Eligibility is determined according to CRC guidelines (http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx).
