The Institute is located at the centre of a stimulating, bilingual, urban environment in the city of Montreal. It offers workspace and support, an ongoing seminar program, and contact with faculty members at McGill and neighbouring Montreal universities.

The position is ideal for those with research leave funding, a portable research fellowship, or sabbatical. Preference will be given to applicants who already hold faculty positions.

Please note in particular that Canada does not pay for hospital or medical services for visitors. We ask all visiting professors to secure health insurance for the duration of the stay in Canada.

Due to the unpredictable circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the terms and conditions of this appointment may be modified or withdrawn depending on the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic and government directives.  The University will make every effort to inform candidates as soon as possible if there are any changes to the terms of this appointment.
