This tenure-track/tenured position will be housed in the Department of Gerontology. Research foci of the Department have included, for example, senior-friendly communities, healthy active living, intergenerational engagement, and community health as a determinant of meaningful aging. The first five years of this position will be funded through the New Brunswick Health Research Foundationís (NBHRF) Research Chair program. During this period, the successful candidate will benefit from a substantially reduced teaching load and have access to a generous fund to support their program of research.

Completed applications must include a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a research portfolio including a (maximum 1000-word) research plan for the 5-year duration of the chair, and a teaching dossier. Applicants must also arrange to have three letters of reference sent directly to Dr. Kim Fenwick, Vice-President (Academic & Research), St. Thomas University, 51 Dineen Drive, Fredericton, NB, E3B 5G3. Electronic applications may be sent to vpacademic@stu.ca.

Closing Date: November 15, 2017 or when the position is filled. Applicants are responsible for ensuring that their completed applications, including letters of reference, are received by this date.

An equal opportunity employer, St. Thomas University is committed to employment equity for women, Aboriginal persons, members of visible minority groups, and persons with disabilities. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian and permanent residents will be given priority.
