Qualified candidates in other related agricultural economics fields will also be considered.
McGill’s Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences is located on the Macdonald Campus, 35 km from downtown Montreal. The Campus comprises 650 hectares of farm and forested lands, commercial and research animal facilities, experimental field stations, well-equipped analytical laboratories and state-of-the-art student learning facilities.

The successful candidate that satisfies the eligibility conditions of the Canada Research Chair (CRC) program may be supported by the University for nomination to a Tier 2 Chair in Agricultural Economics, which provides protected time for research within a full-time academic appointment. Nominees for Tier 2 Chair positions must be emerging scholars and hold the rank of assistant or associate professors, or possess the necessary qualifications to be appointed to these levels. A nominee who is more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree and has experienced legitimate career interruptions (e.g., maternity or parental leave, extended sick leave, clinical training, and family care) will be taken into consideration using the Tier 2 justifications process.
