Position description:

The McGill University Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences (FMHS) is seeking to strengthen its links to Indigenous communities and expand its leadership, research and teaching capacity in areas relevant to Indigenous health through the recruitment of new faculty members. These opportunities are aligned with McGill University’s overall commitment to increase the number of Indigenous professors over the next decade, one component of the University’s support of Indigenous success and reconciliation, summarized in its 52 Calls to Action . These new academic positions also align with the ongoing commitments of the FMHS to expand access to Health Professions education for Indigenous students, decolonize curricula, and include Indigenous ways of knowing and respect for Indigenous identities in clinical care, research, teaching, and service to the wider community. In line with these commitments, preference will be given to candidates who identify as First Nations, Inuit, Métis, Native American, Alaskan Native or Native Hawaiian.

Recognizing the importance of critical mass to the success of new faculty members, the FMHS seeks to hire for several positions in the following units:

  • the Ingram School of Nursing
  • the Department of Family Medicine
  • the School of Population and Global Health

Selected candidates will be offered an appropriate academic position as a member of the Contract Academic Staff group.  A tenure track position may be offered to suitable candidates.

Job Duties

Faculty members hired in these roles will contribute to the academic mission in areas such as Indigenous health research or clinical innovation, course development addressing Indigenous health priorities and ways of knowing for health professional or graduate students, or curricular reform. Successful candidates who take up research-intensive positions will be expected to develop an independent research program and to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching for our diverse student body. 

McGill faculty members are expected to contribute to service activities within their units, the University, and the wider scholarly community. A demonstrated commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion is also expected.

Qualifications and Education Requirements

As part of this cluster hiring initiative, the FMHS welcomes applications from candidates with expertise relevant to Indigenous health gained outside traditional academic career paths. This could include health-relevant roles as leaders or advocates in Indigenous communities, or in private enterprise, governmental or non-governmental organizations. Full-time or part-time academic positions may be available for selected candidates with such backgrounds.

Candidates who wish to be considered for a tenure track position must have a PhD, or equivalent advanced training or experience, in a relevant field.

Salary: Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience

Job Status: Full-time or Part-time
