Careers

Associate Vice President, Research

MacEwan University is a public, board-governed Baccalaureate and Applied Studies Institution within Alberta’s post-secondary system and has been an institution in transition since its inception as Grant MacEwan Community College over forty-five years ago. From a two-year community college with no mandate for university-level programming, to the province’s largest university transfer institution, and then to a degree-granting institution, the university has continuously evolved and adapted to meet the changing needs of its students and of the communities it serves.

MacEwan serves a diversity of learners in the following major areas of study: liberal arts, business/commerce, communications, engineering, health and human services, performing and visual arts, physical education and science. The university’s innovative approaches to program delivery are designed to maximize graduates’ opportunities to advance their careers and further their educations. Programs and courses at MacEwan are offered through several faculties and schools: Faculty of Arts and Science, Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications, Faculty of Health and Community Studies, Faculty of Nursing, School of Business and School of Continuing Education.

The Office of Research Services supports MacEwan faculty, students and staff with their research, scholarly and creative activity at all stages of a project—planning, development, implementation and follow-through. As well as providing information on funding opportunities, the office hosts workshops, ensures ethical standards are met, provides print and digital resources for managing projects and answers any questions faculty or students have about research at MacEwan.
 
Reporting to the Provost and Vice-President Academic and serving as a collaborative member of the Provost’s Team, the Associate Vice President, Research is a full-time role responsible for the overall leadership and management of the Office of Research Services and supports the priorities and objectives of MacEwan University.
