The École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) has created five engineering chairs and it is looking for external candidates to fill these positions.
The positions of Director for five engineering research chairs are open to eligible candidates who must, in addition to meeting the criteria for excellence normally recognized in the academic community, possess character traits observed in individuals with exceptional personal or professional accomplishments, such as perseverance, resilience, and determination in the face of adversity.
According to the institute, the successful candidates will not only earn positions as regular professors, but each will be benefiting from an annual budget of $100,000 for five years, for a total of $500,000, with which to complete his or her research program.
It is worth recalling that the aim of the Marcelle-Gauvreau Engineering Research Chairs Program is to diversify the faculty by providing professional opportunities to individuals with an atypical personal or career path.
A committee will select individuals based on the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) criteria for research excellence, the merit of their research proposal, and their proven ability to demonstrate perseverance and resilience, qualities we deem essential in the pursuit of excellence and innovation.
Interested persons may apply for one of these five research chairs by January 9, 2022. Descriptions of the positions are available at: careers in research.
