I don’t usually post job openings here, but since I have some relationship to all three of these places, I thought I’d pass along some postings for three jobs in Toronto. Here is information on three postings for: (1) Teaching opportunity in the School of HRM, York U.; (2) Teaching opportunities at the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management, U. of Toronto; and (3) Lawyer posting, Workers’ Rights Division, Parkdale Community Legal Services.
1. School of Human Resource Management, York University
The School of Human Resource Management is hiring what York calls a CLA (Contractually Limited Appointment), which is essentially a year long full-time post in the School that requires teaching courses offered within the School. If you are interested in living the life of an academic, and hanging out with all of us really cool people in the SHRM, and you have a Ph.D or Masters degree in a related discipline, here’s an opportunity. The job begins on July 1, 2010 and applications are due May 18th. Here is the job posting.
2. Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management, U. of Toronto
Here is the link to postings for gigs teaching a variety of courses in employment law, industrial relations, and HRM at U. of Toronto.
3. Parkdale Community Legal Services – Lawyer, Workers’ Rights Division
PCLS is hiring a lawyer to run its Workers’ Rights Division. This is a great and challenging place to put your law degree to work helping people who are disadvantaged. The Workers’ Rights Division provides advice and advocacy in employment standards, workers’ compensation, and other employment-related matters. The lawyer supervises five Osgoode Hall law students. I worked as a student there myself in the 1990s, and I am now on the Board of Directors of PCLS. If you are interested in this job, here is the text of the ad that appeared in the Ontario Reports this week, and the information on how to apply:
