At Telfer, we promote an environment where professors have the time and freedom to pursue transformative research and teaching. We highly value academic freedom and believe strongly that a diversity of viewpoints and vigorous debate are essential to scholarly integrity and success. Newly hired professors benefit from generous research funding, as well as support for research grant applications and experiential learning. They can also hone their linguistic skills through free courses in English or French as a second language.

Our school is located in the Desmarais Building, steps away from Parliament Hill and the head offices of many national government and business organizations. We are part of an ecosystem that includes six affiliated hospital research institutes, federal government laboratories and Canada’s largest technology park in Kanata North, offering countless opportunities for research and academic partnerships. Our professors are sought after nationally and internationally for their expertise, helping to shape public policy in areas ranging from sustainable business leadership to health systems management.

The numbers speak for themselves: the University of Ottawa ranks among the top 10 research universities in Canada and among the top 140 universities in the world. We have been named one of Canada’s top 100 employers for more than a decade. Our cutting-edge research facilities attract leading researchers and students from around the world.

Make your home in Ottawa, Canada’s capital and one of the country’s most beautiful, safest and cleanest cities. Consistently ranked among the 20 most liveable cities in the world, Ottawa offers vibrant urban living minutes from the great outdoors. There is something for everyone in this culturally diverse city of more than a million people: national museums and galleries, fine restaurants and entertainment, and year-round recreation in the nearby Gatineau Hills or on its rivers and waterways. Ottawa is home to the most educated workforce in Canada, attracting a host of international firms. And it is a great place to raise a family, offering a choice of English and French school systems and several colleges and universities.

Telfer is located near Canada’s most important institutions, in the heart of a bilingual and richly multicultural city. The school’s generous research funding and openness to all views offer academics an ideal research and teaching environment.
