Call for Three Faculty of Science Research Chairs

The Faculty of Science is looking for its next group of Science Research Chairs. In 2018, the Faculty created the Faculty of Science Research Chairs program to honour faculty members deserving of public recognition. In early 2019, we announced our first three chairs: Kari Dalnoki-Veress, Physics & Astronomy; Allison Williams, Geography & Earth Sciences; and Michael Brook, Chemistry & Chemical Biology.

We will award a second group of three Chairs in early 2020. A Faculty of Science Research Chair may hold a Chair for an initial term of 3 years. In addition to holding the title as Science Research Chair, each Chair receives $15,000 each year for 3 years in the form of a research stipend. A Research Chair can be renewed for an additional 3-year term, but no research stipend will be provided in the second term. Please note people who hold CRCs or endowed chairs are not eligible to hold a Science Research Chair.

Full details on the program are available in the Call for Nominations document. Nomination forms can be downloaded here.

Nomination packages are due on November 26 by 4 pm (electronic copies of the application package, pdf preferred) and should be sent to Katelyn McKay. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Gianni Parise or Seanna-Lin Brodie-Keys.
