Applications are invited for the Kinross Chair in Environmental Governance

Position: Kinross Chair in Environmental Governance
Organization: College of Social and Applied Human Sciences, University of Guelph
Location: Guelph, Ontario, Canada

The University of Guelph invites applications for the third Kinross Chair in Environmental Governance.

This unique position is to be held by a leader in contemporary environmental governance in Canada or abroad. We encourage applicants with extensive experience, professional expertise and/or scholarly excellence from across the spectrum of environmental governance. We look forward to welcoming the successful candidate to our campus for a four to six month residency starting in Fall 2018. During this time you will share your knowledge and develop opportunities for further knowledge creation with faculty and students. We invite applications from established or emerging Indigenous leaders, public servants, business executives, NGO leaders, and academics who are eager to share their innovative approaches at the University of Guelph. 

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. The University of Guelph acknowledge the Attawandaron people on whose traditional territory the University of Guelph resides and offer our respect to our Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Métis neighbours as we strive to strengthen our relationships with them. At the University of Guelph, fostering a culture of inclusion is an institutional imperative. The University invites and encourages applications from all qualified individuals, including from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in employment, who may contribute to further diversification of our Institution.

Please submit your application by January 2, 2018.

Interested persons are invited to contact Belinda Leach for further information. Those applying should submit a CV and a letter outlining their ideas for activities and anticipated outcomes to:

Dr. Belinda Leach
Associate Dean (Research) Office of the Dean,
