CANADA RESEARCH CHAIR IN CHILDREN AND GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT
The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) at Dalhousie University invites applications for a Tier I Canada Research Chair on “Children and Global Development.” The appointment will be at the rank of Professor and will be conditional on the successful applicant being approved as a Tier 1 Research Chair by the CRC secretariat. The position is open with regard to disciplinary specialization, with a primary appointment in one of the Faculty’s Departments (Classics, English, French, German, History, International Development Studies, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Russian Studies, Sociology and Social Anthropology, Spanish and Latin American Studies or Theatre). A research emphasis on the area of children and conflict would be an asset. Dalhousie University has growing strength in the broad area of “Children in Challenging Contexts”, including researchers in the School of Social Work and the Faculty of Medicine as well as FASS. This strength is reflected, for example, in a new Network Centres of Excellence Knowledge Mobilization grant on Children in Challenging Contexts and the Centre for Foreign Policy Studies Child Soldier/Conflict Affected Youth initiatives. The successful candidate will be expected to sustain a strong research program of their own, and in so doing actively contribute to intra- and inter-faculty collaborations in this area of emphasis.
Candidates must have a PhD, an outstanding research profile, and an innovative and original research programme; a strong track-record of obtaining external funding; and the ability to work co-operatively, provide leadership in an interdisciplinary environment, develop multi-faceted research projects, and work with graduate students and/or post-doctoral fellows. Although this is primarily a research appointment, the appointee will be expected to teach at the graduate and undergraduate level.
The Canada Research Chairs (CRC) Programme has been established by the Government of Canada to enable Canadian universities to foster research excellence and enhance their role as world-class centres of research excellence.
