Subject: [psu-hris] Research Associate Blanket Ad - Submissions Due October 18, 2019

Please circulate to those involved with advertising academic positions

Blanket Ad for Research Associates – due October 18, 2019

Human Resources will place a blanket ad for research associate positions for the period of November 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020. The intent of blanket advertising is to minimize the turnaround time between the notification of grant approval and the filling of the research associate position. Positions will be advertised online (HR website, UM Today, University Affairs, CAUT and Canadian Job Bank) and costs will be covered by the Office of the Vice-President (Research).

We suggest the position be included in the blanket ad if there is a possibility the position cannot be filled by a Canadian or permanent resident. According to Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC) regulations, a person who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident cannot be employed in Canada without a work permit. This policy has meant that the U of M, in proposing to hire a non-Canadian, must demonstrate to HRDC that both the wording and placement of advertisements have provided Canadian citizens and permanent residents with an adequate opportunity to apply. Inclusion in a blanket ad is an acceptable way of meeting HRDC advertising requirements. This blanket ad is valid only for positions offered between the date of publication and April 30, 2020. 

If you participate in this blanket ad, you can still place a separate research associate ad in the future, but your department will need to cover the costs (approximately $900.00/ad).

Please send the following information to by October 18, 2019:

·        Specific heading you want position to go under (ex: Computer Science, Soil Science)

·        Brief list and/or paragraph describing the field of research

·        One departmental contact name and email address

For examples, see the HR employment website.
