The University of Ottawa is a dynamic community of students, researchers, professionals, and academics in pursuit of great things. Our vision for the university of tomorrow is one that reflects the diversity of its people, their ideas, and their identities. We believe in the power of representation, and that increasing the diversity of our faculty and staff supports this objective.

One way in which we are starting to affect change, is by promoting more inclusive practices for staff and faculty recruitment. This includes more diversified and cross-functional selection committees, the use of self-representation surveys and equity data, guarding against biases through education, policies and procedures, as well as broadening our candidate searches through agencies and community partners.

Our goal is to provide the best student experience, sustained by a campus community they can identify with. To achieve this, we are seeking academic candidates that can best represent a broad intersection of equity-deserving communities, as well as their lived experiences.

According to government policy, all qualified candidates are invited to apply; however, preference will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents. The University of Ottawa is an equal opportunity employer. If you are invited to continue the selection process, please notify us of any particular adaptive measures you might require by contacting the Office of the Associate Vice-

President, Faculty Affairs at

[email protected] . Any information you send us will be handled respectfully and in complete confidence.
