Every year a U.S. scholar joins McMaster University's Political Science department to conduct research and engage with faculty and graduate students on an issue in governance and public policy.

We seek candidates with the following specializations:

Areas of central concern for public policy formation and implementation in a globalized world, such as public sector management and administration, governance, health and social policy, sustainability, immigration, water, automotive production, trade and investment, innovation and productivity. Other areas of public policy will also be considered.

The Department of Political Science will host the Chair, who will also have opportunities to interact with McMaster's rich interdisciplinary research community, including a new Institute on Public Policy and Analysis, Centre for Engineering and Public Policy, Centre for Health Economics and Policy Analysis, Centre for Climate Change, Institute for Energy Studies, and the Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition, among others.
