NOTES:

  • FYI: Since RMC is run by the Government of Canada, they tend to give preference to (1) Canadian citizens/permanent residents (2) applicants who have previous experience/success with SSHRC, OGS and other Canadian funding bodies (3) bilingual speakers (with at least an intermediate level of French).
  • Don't be scared off by the Canadian job market. I have sat on several Canadian search committees where the job went to the most qualified candidate, regardless of nationality. Your publications and research profile will be key -- so publish a lot (preferably a book ms) and in good journals.
  • This is typically true for universities in Canada, yes (they regularly hire non-citizens/non-residents - sometimes more often than not). But this is a job specifically with the government of Canada (since RMCC is considered a government position). The first line on the actual job application site (not the ACCUTE version) is "who can apply: Persons residing in Canada and Canadian citizens residing abroad."
