ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY: Laval University is one of Canada's leading universities. Among the top ten Canadian universities in terms of research, Laval traces its origins back to 1663, when Monseigneur Francois de Laval, the first bishop of New France, founded the Quebec Seminary with the authorization of the King of France, Louis XIV. A Royal Charter creating Laval University was granted to the Quebec Seminary by Queen Victoria in 1852. A few years later, in 1878, Laval opened a second campus in Montreal to offer higher education teaching in this city. Laval's "Montreal branch" became the University of Montreal in 1920. As Canada's oldest university, Laval was the very first institution in North America to offer higher education in French.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Consideration of applications begins now, and will continue until the position is filled. All qualified candidates are welcomed to apply.
