Tier II Canada Research Chairs - 3 Positions
Trent University invites applications from candidates for Junior (Tier II) Canada Research Chairs (CRC) in the following
Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Arts, Literatures and Performance (SSHRC)
Nozhem is a living community performance research laboratory that investigates Indigenous survivance, creativity and
innovation as the foundation for fostering Mino-Bimaadiziwin: the good life. The CRC in Indigenous Arts, Literatures
and Performance will enhance and enlarge the foundations of Nozhem as a living performance research space. The
focus of the research will be on Indigenous cultures preservation, Traditional Knowledge, orality, and narrative; the
creation of new interpretations of old stories for survivance and resurgence in the new world.
Canada Research Chair in Aging, Health and Life-course in Rural and Non-urban Canada (CIHR)
The Trent Centre for Aging and Society is a new initiative to promote research on aging and old age that is responsive
to the challenges and opportunities facing older people in the Peterborough region, across Canada and internationally. The CRC in Aging, Health and Life-course in Rural and Non-urban Canada is an innovative, highly interdisciplinary
Chair aligned with the Centre and departments/programs such as Canadian Studies, English Literature, Gender and
Women’s Studies, Geography, Nursing, Psychology and Sociology. This Chair will develop an exciting and original
research program examining a range of features of rural and non- urban aging whose research results will make a
significant contribution to the wider gerontological and policy worlds.
Canada Research Chair in Environmental Archaeology (SSHRC)
The Department of Anthropology, Undergraduate Program in Archaeology, Anthropology Graduate Program, and the
Trent University Archaeological Research Centre seek to compliment and build upon existing research and training
through the appointment of a CRC in Environmental Archaeology. A candidate with a specialization in palaeobotany
or geoarchaeology is preferred. While the temporal and regional focus is open, a scholar who has an active research
program in the Americas is preferred. This is an interdisciplinary CRC with one foot solidly in the study of long-term
social dynamics with the other firmly planted in specialized study of ecological systems; integrated into a position in
which the type of knowledge created is enriched by both disciplinary traditions and leads to the development of new
insight and understanding of the archaeological record.
Candidates for the Tier II CRC positions must be excellent emerging researchers who possess the necessary qualifications to be appointed at the Assistant/Associate Professor Level. Candidates must have received their doctorate
within the last 10 years.
By October 1, 2014 applicants should send a curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, brief five-year
research plan, examples of significant research contributions, and names and contact information for three potential
referees to: email@example.com
