About the Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Migration and Integration
The Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Migration and Integration is led by Professor Anna Triandafyllidou. The program is producing innovative and usable knowledge on the links between migration and post-migration processes, forced and voluntary mobility, internal and international migration, and the role of countries of origin and transit. The CERC pays special attention to Canadian realities while also engaging in comparative research with and among other countries in various global regions.
The CERC program is among the most prestigious and generous programs available globally, enabling universities to build on Canada's growing reputation as a leader in research and innovation. The program recognizes and supports world-renowned researchers and their teams with up to $10 million over seven years to establish ambitious research programs at Canadian universities.
The CERC program is an initiative of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and is administered by the Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat (TIPS).
The CERC in Migration and Integration at Ryerson University invites applications of interest from post-doctoral and more senior research fellows who work in the wider field of migration and integration. This position is offered in close connection with a multi-year research project on migrant decision making under conditions of uncertainty, with a special interest on decision-making and transitions from temporary to long term status in Canada. More information on the research is given further below.
The CERC offers an opportunity to pursue new research, develop leadership potential, and collaborate internationally working as part of a research team, headed by Professor Anna Triandafyllidou, Canada Excellence Research Chair in Migration and Integration, at Ryerson University.
Candidates are invited to submit not later than 25 May 2021
