The James McGill Professor award recognizes a senior scholar’s status as an outstanding and original researcher of world-class caliber and an international leader in his or her field. The award is similar to that of a Canada Research Chair Tier 1. James McGill Professors must be tenured full professors. Their award will be held for a seven-year term, and is renewable once upon performance review.
Additional information can be found on the Internal Awards webpage.
