The University wishes to note that a Tier 2 nomination resulting from an external recruitment has required a flex move to change the council of the chair slot to align with the nominee’s area of research. The University will be submitting the nomination by Fall 2024. As with all CRC opportunities, the University’s objectives of equity, diversity and inclusion were taken into considering when making this decision.


  • Post all current U of T CRC opportunities to this website for a minimum of 30 days prior to the application deadline
  • Maintain an archive of previous postings for CRC opportunities at U of T (past three years)
  • Post transparency statements for emergency retention nominations and Tier 1 third-term renewals for a minimum of 30 days prior to the nomination submission
  • Provide links to the CRC public accountability web pages of the affiliated hospitals
