Carleton’s Canada Research Chair Program
In alignment with Carleton’s Strategic Integrated Plan that outlines Share Knowledge; Shape the Future as a key strategic direction, the Canada Research Chairs Program is designed to attract the best talent from Canada and around the world, helping universities achieve research excellence in a wide variety of fields. Chairholders improve Canadians’ depth of knowledge and quality of life, strengthen the country’s international competitiveness, and help train the next generation of highly-skilled people. Carleton is home to several Canada Research Chairholders who represent a wide variety of disciplines.
Carleton University is strongly committed to fostering diversity within the Canada Research Chairs Program and its entire community as a source of excellence, cultural enrichment, and social strength. We welcome those who would contribute to the further diversification of our University including, but not limited to women; visible minorities; First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples; persons with disabilities; and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity and expressions. Read more about the CRC program on the Carleton Office of Research Initiatives and Services website.
Hear from our Chairs
Prof. Carmen Robertson, Canada Research Chair in North American Indigenous Visual and Material Culture
As the Tier I Canada Research Chair in North American Art and Material Culture jointly appointed between the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies, the School of Arts and Culture and the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture, I have undertaken a series of interrelated collaborative research projects to situate Indigenous ways of knowing through visual stories. By investigating the artistic practice of Anishinaabe artist Norval Morrisseau, relational connections in contemporary Prairie Beading, and through a theoretical engagement with Indigenous aesthetics, I strive to centre discourses around Indigenous art histories within cultural epistemological contexts. Support from Carleton, SSHRC, other funding bodies, and with the aid of research assistants, has invigorated an interdisciplinary program of research built on art historical, curatorial, archival, and Indigenous research methods.
Prof. Winnie Ye, Canada Research Chair in Nano-scale IC Design for Reliable Opto-Electronics and Sensors
I am honoured to be awarded a Canada Research Chair (Tier II) title. During the Chair tenure, I was offered tremendous opportunity to learn and engage with internal and external experts, industrial researchers and outstanding graduate students. The research support from the university through awards, grants and student research assistantships has enabled my research program to grow, flourish and thrive. It has been, and continues to be, a unique experience for me to create research momentum and leadership in silicon photonics through successful partnerships between academia, private sector and government research labs.
