QNS proposals move to second stage

Six proposals have been selected by the Queen’s National Scholars (QNS) advisory committee to advance to the second round of the 2016-17 competition.

Through the process up to four scholars will be hired. A total of 10 applications were received.

For the second stage the proposals were:

? Indigenous Studies: Land- and Language-Based Pedagogies and Practices, submitted by the Departments of Global Development Studies and Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
? Health Equity and Physical Activity among Older Adults, submitted by the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies.
? Political Philosophy and Critical Prison Studies, submitted by the Department of Philosophy, Graduate Program in Cultural Studies.
? Aboriginal Literature in French and Migrant Literatures, submitted by the Departments of French Studies and Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
? Computational Neuroeconomics, submitted by the Departments of Psychology and Economics/Faculty of Arts and Science.
? Environmental Geochemistry, submitted by the Department of Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering and School of Environmental Studies.

Those responsible for each application will now submit an expanded proposal, which will include a recommendation of an individual to be appointed.

“The QNS program is an excellent opportunity to attract talented young faculty members to Queen’s,” says Steven Liss, Vice-Principal (Research). “The committee is looking for individuals who have demonstrated exceptional abilities as a teacher and who are engaged in promising research programs that align with the university’s academic and strategic research plans.”

Since the program launched in 1984, it has recruited more than 100 exceptional scholars who have contributed extensively to the research and teaching missions at Queen’s.

The program provides $100,000 annually for five years for each QNS and is intended to attract outstanding junior and mid-career professors to Queen’s.
