Faculty recruitment

Our commitment to excellence begins with you!

Looking for a challenging and rewarding academic career? It starts here.

Whether your expertise is in the arts or humanities… public policy or business management ... pure or applied sciences ... . or somewhere in between, our goal is to ensure that you have the tools and resources to excel both in your career and as a member of the University of Ottawa community.

Located in the heart of the capital, close to the nation’s seat of power and major institutions, the University of Ottawa is one of Canada’s leading teaching and research-intensive universities. We foster an environment where ideas flourish and innovation thrives.

Our 3,900 faculty and 35,000 students come from across Canada and 150 nations around the world. Why not become part of our diverse academic community? You have the choice of working in either official language, and you’ll help shape a dynamic national institution that values and supports its faculty.

“In the last few years, the University has created programs in international development, international studies and modern languages, and public administration, and hired dozens of new faculty members in these areas. In 2007 we established the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs to offer a unique multidisciplinary program bridging diplomacy and policy-making, as well as to pursue leading-edge research and contribute to public debate on national and international policy. These initiatives speak volumes about the University’s commitment to teaching and research excellence on public policy and international affairs issues.”
