For new academics

As one of North America's leading research universities, it is a vital part of McGill's mission to recruit and retain outstanding faculty and librarians.

The recruitment process for academic staff is decentralized and resides within the Faculties, Departments and Schools. If you are interested in applying for an academic position, please proceed to the Faculties and Schools webpage or McGill's University index to locate contact details for the department you are interested in.

The  Academic Personnel Office, the Office of the Provost, and Human Resources provide the services and support necessary to new academic staff to ensure their smooth transition to McGill and Montreal. Here are a few important dates and links for newcomers:

Organized by the Office of the Provost around topics of special interest to new tenure-stream academic staff and librarians, the orientation is designed to introduce incoming staff to their new community.

In addition to formal presentations, the session provides a forum for new academic staff members to network with colleagues and meet the Principal, the Provost, and other members of the University Administration.
