2 year post-doctoral fellowship ($70k/year) + tenure track appointment at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada

The Creative Interactions Lab in the School of Information Technology at Carleton University is interested in sponsoring an individual for a Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship. This is a highly competitive award, designed for candidates who are almost ready to apply for a Faculty position, to build capacity at the university. As such, Carleton will offer a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor to successful Banting awardees after the 2 year term of the postdoctoral fellowship.

The Creative Interactions Lab focuses on novel interactions techniques, specifically with deformable user interactions, with a recent focus on accessibility and health care. We are most interested in human computer interaction candidates who have expertise or interests in deformation interaction techniques, shape shifting, tangible user interfaces, health care and/or accessibility.

The Banting fellowship is a two year position with an annual salary of $70k.

Applications will be subject to an internal adjudication process before any application is forwarded.


- Initial expressions of interest: June 20

- Candidate name must be confirmed by: June 30

- Internal submission process (by invitation only): July 13

- Full application to the sponsor (by invitation only): Sept 21


Applicants to the 2016-17 Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program must fulfill or have fulfilled all degree requirements for a PhD between September 21, 2013 and September 30, 2017 (inclusively), and before the start date of their award. Canadian citizens, permanent residents of Canada and foreign citizens are eligible to apply.
