Faculties are now invited to nominate York Faculty members for the York Research Chairs (YRC) 2018-2019 competition
Please see attached for the VPRI memo and corresponding documents regarding the 2018/2019 York Research Chairs Competition. Note that Glendon will hold an internal adjudication in advance of the VPRI deadline. If you are interested in submitting your file for a York Research Chair, please complete the Glendon Round 1 Application Form and the YRC Self-Identification Form (also attached) and submit it electronically, along with the corresponding attachments to the Associate Principal Academic and Graduate Studies (email@example.com), with a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. The deadline for the internal competition is Monday, September 3.
Note that there are several changes to the YRC program this year. More details can be found in the attached “YRC Presentation (Info Session July 2018)”. Of particular note is the additional Tier 2 category for emerging scholars (within 5 years of their first academic appointment). The competition now includes specific Equity, Diversity and Inclusion commitments. Therefore, we explicitly encourage any researchers who identify as a member of one of the federally-recognized designated groups – Women, Indigenous Peoples, Persons with disabilities, Members of visible minority groups – to submit their application to the program.
