The Canada Research Chair is also open to internal candidates who already hold a tenure-track or tenured faculty position at McGill University.

The Department of Economics of McGill University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Applied Microeconomics (With emphasis on Health Economics). Exceptional candidates in other fields may be considered. The appointment begins 1 August 2019.

For more information about the Department of Economics, see www.mcgill.ca/economicsEnquiries may be directed to the Chair of the Department, John Galbraith, at john.galbraith@mcgill.ca.  

The successful candidate that satisfies the eligibility conditions of the Canada Research Chair (CRC) program may be supported by the University for nomination to a Tier 2 Chair in Applied Microeconomics (with emphasis on Health Economics), which provides protected time for research within a full-time academic appointment.

Nominees for Tier 2 Chair positions must be emerging scholars and hold the rank of assistant or associate professors, or possess the necessary qualifications to be appointed to these levels. A nominee who is more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree and has experienced legitimate career interruptions (e.g., maternity or parental leave, extended sick leave, clinical training, and family care) will be taken into consideration using the Tier 2 justifications process.

Eligibility conditions for CRCs are found at http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx#s3


Teaching, research, service.


  •  Applicants should have, or expect soon to complete, a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in Economics.
  •  Candidates are expected to show evidence of exceptional promise in research and teaching effectiveness.

The language of instruction at McGill is English; however, a working knowledge of French is an asset. 

Candidates who do not satisfy the CRC eligibility criteria for a Tier 2 Chair are nonetheless invited to apply for the position.
