Ontario’s Chief Scientist Recruitment Underway

In a news release made earlier today, the Government of Ontario has announced that the recruitment for the province’s first Chief Scientist is underway. Four Corners Group will lead this large-scale international search on behalf of the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science and looks forward to receiving expressions of interest once the Position Profile is released in the coming weeks.

“This recruitment is unique in that the Ministry undertook a comprehensive public consultation process to help develop the mandate for the Chief Scientist,” says Suzanne Clark, the Partner overseeing the recruitment. “The Chief Scientist will report to the Minister of Research, Innovation and Science on an ongoing basis and to the Premier on key scientific matters, so there is a great deal of interest around this recruitment and its outcome from members in the scientific community and the broader public.”
