Canada Research Chair
The Concordia University
in Montreal, Quebec, invites applications for an Emerging (Tier 2) Canada Research Chair (CRC)
in Media and Migration within the Film Studies area (which houses the Film and Moving Image Studies doctoral program).
They are seeking a Canadian or international scholar demonstrating promising and innovative investigations into the relation between transnational, migratory and diasporic movements and the media forms and infrastructures in their contemporary or historical dimensions, broadly defined.
Candidates eligible for Tier II chair positions must be exceptional emerging scholars within 10 years of their highest degree at the time of nomination (exclusive of career interruptions).
The successful candidate will have an important record of innovative or diverse research and publication (or, in the case of a junior scholar, show the promise for such a record with at least one peer-reviewed publication) and have demonstrated an ability to foster collaborative initiatives in or outside the university, secure appropriate funding, and mentor a diverse body of students.
The candidate will also be expected to take a leadership role in continuing to build and expand the research culture of the department and university and its graduate programs, and this with an eye to the multiplicity of forms of media and migration around the globe.
Application deadline: 15 September 2019
