I hope this finds you well. My name is Jiasi and I am the O'Brien Programs Coordinator at McGill University's Faculty of Law. I am writing to share our call for applications for the 2023 O'Brien Graduate Fellowships. We would be grateful if you could kindly circulate this call within your networks. I have included it to this e-mail, available in English, French, and Spanish.
The O’Brien Graduate Fellowships were established in 2005 through a very generous gift from David O’Brien for outstanding Masters or Doctoral students studying in the area of human rights and legal pluralism in the Faculty of Law, McGill University.
O’Brien Fellows become members of the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism, a focal point for innovative legal and interdisciplinary research, dialogue, and outreach on human rights and legal pluralism. The Fellowships for LLM students are valued at up to a maximum of $25,000 per annum, tenable for 1 year. For DCL students the Fellowships are valued at $35,000 per annum, renewable twice (if eligibility is maintained).
This Fellowship Program is an entrance scholarship. Applicants for this scholarship must also simultaneously submit an application for admission to one of our graduate programs<https://www.mcgill.ca/law/grad-studies/admissions-guide> by the stipulated deadline. More information on the Fellowship program<https://www.mcgill.ca/humanrights/obrien/grad-fellowships> and current graduate fellows<https://www.mcgill.ca/humanrights/aboutus/students> is available on our website.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

The Government of Canada has established the CRC program to enable Canadian universities to foster world-class research excellence. The proposed CRC aligns with the University's strategic research plan that identifies Sustainable Systems for Resilient Communities as a research theme and the Human Rights and Social Justice Theme. The successful candidates will become a member of the Department of Environment and Geography, (http://umanitoba.ca/faculties/environment/departments/geography/index.html) in the Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources.
The research contributions of the proposed CRC in Just Transformations will focus on understanding the conflicts that are embedded within social transition and transformations based on resource use and environmental change. The candidate will be expected to teach two courses in their area of research and attract graduate students to the program. Service will be required both within the University and through various professional and public organizations linked to the candidate's area of expertise. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a research program that addresses the current gaps in political ecology with respect to sustainable solutions, especially around Indigenous peoples and other equity-deserving groups, and Canadian urban and/or rural development. Of relevance would be work that engages societal needs in the areas of human-environment relations with a strong emphasis on justice, power and/or inequity.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. and proven success in leading an independently organized research program related to inequity, the legacies of colonialism, Indigenous studies, race/racism, urban and environmental governance, and/or the politics of sustainability. Ability to achieve research excellence and external funding in the areas of environmental justice, political ecology and social-ecological transformations is required. Experience in teaching and mentoring graduate students, research associates and/or undergraduate students is expected. Demonstrated teaching excellence at the undergraduate and graduate levels will be an asset. Outstanding applicants with internationally recognized expertise in the broad fields, as outlined above, are encouraged to apply. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. A Tier 2 CRC Nomination will be submitted soon after a successful candidate has been selected. Chairs are awarded by the Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat after a rigorous evaluation, and award decisions are expected in the spring 2023. The appointment will be conditional on a successful Canada Research Chair nomination. Applicants must be exceptional emerging scholars with less than 10 years of experience as an active researcher since obtaining their terminal degree at the time of nomination. Tier 2 Chairs are valued at $100,000 per year for 5 years with an option to renew once. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) will have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program's Tier 2 justification process. Please contact the UM's Office of Research Services (researchgrants(a)umanitoba.ca) office for more information. The University acknowledges the potential impact that Career Interruptions and Personal Circumstances can have on an applicant's record of research achievement. We encourage applicants to explain the impact of any such interruption(s) in their submission. Measures will be taken to ensure that these leaves will be taken into careful consideration during the evaluation process. The CRC Nomination Selection Committee will receive equity training that includes instruction on how to recognize and combat unconscious, implicit, overt, prejudicial and other kinds of bias.
