Job Description





Arrell Food Chairs (3 positions)
University of Guelph

Three Arrell Chairs in Food: (1) Chair in Food Quality; (2) Chair in Food, Policy, and Society; (3) Chair in the Business of Food

Arrell Food Institute
Ontario Agricultural College
College of Business and Economics
College of Social and Applied Human Sciences

The University of Guelph is seeking three outstanding faculty members who will become the named Arrell Chairs in Food Studies at the Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph. http://arrellfoodinstitute.ca/chairs-in-food/

As an Arrell Chair, you will participate in the life and management of the newly formed Arrell Food Institute, which was created out of a $20M gift to the University of Guelph from the Arrell Family Foundation. The Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph’s vision is to transform global food systems and elevate Canada’s place within the global food economy. To do this, we are building on University of Guelph’s world-class strengths in all aspects of food research and education, and will be the world leader in food and agricultural innovation.

As an Arrell Chair, you will also hold a tenured faculty appointment at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor in the academic department most closely related to your discipline, in the Ontario Agricultural College, the College of Business and Economics or the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences at the University of Guelph.

As a critical step in developing long-term solutions to ensure a healthy, sustainable future, the Arrell Chairs will develop, implement and lead an engagement and outreach initiative in one of three broad areas of (1) food quality (in the Ontario Agricultural College); (2) food, policy, and society (in the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences) and (3) the business of food (at the College of Business and Economics).

Viewed as an expert in the field, each of the Arrell Chairs will individually and collectively lead work to promote more sustainable, equitable, efficient, safe and nutritious food systems in Canada and abroad.

Candidates must be world-class scholars who have a demonstrated track record of scholarly work (including grant writing), interdisciplinary thinking, and a history of engaging with non-academic partners such as industry, civil society, government, Aboriginal communities, the media and the general public.

While a strong record of research accomplishments and demonstrated abilities in teaching and graduate advising are important, the objective of the Chair is to expand and enhance the University’s communication and outreach activities in a manner that strengthens our reputation as Canada’s Food University. The skills to build connections with other institutions and stakeholders within agricultural and food systems are essential.

The search committee will begin consideration of candidates immediately and will continue until the roles are successfully filled. It is anticipated that candidates will commence their appointments early in 2018.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.

The University of Guelph acknowledge the Attawandaron people on whose traditional territory the University of Guelph resides and offer our respect to our Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Métis neighbours as we strive to strengthen our relationships with them.

At the University of Guelph, fostering a culture of inclusion  is an institutional imperative. The University invites and encourages applications from all qualified individuals, including from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in employment, who may contribute to further diversification of our Institution.
