Academic Jobs & Opportunities

Academic Opportunities

MISC has a number of opportunities available to scholars interested in teaching Canadian Studies and/or visiting the Institute. Every year, course lecturers are sought to teach MISC's interdisciplinary undergraduate Canadian Studies courses (CANS), and we host visiting scholars through the Eakin Visiting Fellowships in Canadian Studies. 

MISC occasionally has opportunities available for both course lecturers, and for students looking to gain teaching experience as a teaching assistant. Please note that all postings must be accessed and applied for through Workday (www.mcgill.ca/hr)
