Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, Quebec (www.ubishops.ca) has an opening for a tenure-stream Tier II Canada Research Chair position in multi-messenger astrophysics. The Department of Physics & Astronomy welcomes applications in this broad field, with specialization in one or more of the following areas: gravitational waves, compact objects, cosmology, and gravitational physics; astroparticle physics; radio, optical, and X-ray astronomy; big data and astronomical instrumentation.

The CRC program was created by the Government of Canada to cultivate world-class research and development. The Tier II Chair will be awarded for a five year period, renewable once upon approval from the CRC program. Tier II Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars (i.e., candidates must have been active researchers in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination). Applicants who completed their highest degree more than 10 years ago (and where career interruptions exist) may have their eligibility for a Tier II CRC assessed through the program’s Tier II justification process. The legitimate impact that leaves (e.g., maternity leave, sick leave) can have on a candidate’s record of research achievement will be taken into careful consideration during the assessment process. Please contact Bishop’s Research Office for eligibility details and consult the CRC Foundation for full program information, including further details on eligibility criteria (http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx).
