Faculty of Science Research Chair Call For Nominations
Searching For Next Trio of Research Chairs
Three faculty members will join Michael Brook, Allison Williams, Kari Dalnoki-Veress (top row) and Louis Schmidt, Gillian Goward and Martin Gibala later this year as Faculty of Science Research Chairs.
Nominations are being accepted until Feb. 23 at 4 p.m. (download the nomination form here). The Office of the Associate Dean, Research & External Relations launched the Faculty of Science Research Chair program in 2018 to recognize faculty members deserving of recognition for their research excellence.
In addition to holding the title of Science Research Chair, each Chair receives an annual $15,000 research stipend for three years and one three-unit term of teaching release to dedicate to research efforts. Chairs can be renewed for an additional three-year term without the research stipend and teaching release.
Candidates can be nominated by a colleague or self-nominated. Juliet Daniel, Acting Associate Dean of Research & External Relations, will strike a committee to evaluate candidates based on research excellence, excellence in research training and alignment with the Faculty's strategic research priorities. Contributions to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion will also be considered.
