Associate Provost, Human Resources
University of Waterloo

In just half a century, the University of Waterloo ("Waterloo"), located at the heart of Canada's technology hub, has become one of Canada's leading comprehensive universities, with 35,000 students and 4,000 employees. Waterloo, home to the world's largest post-secondary co-operative education program, embraces its connections to the world and encourages enterprising partnerships in learning, research and discovery. In the next decade, the University will help build a better future for Canada and the world by championing innovation and collaboration to create solutions relevant to the needs of today and tomorrow.

The new Associate Provost, Human Resources (APHR) will play a key role in actualizing the University's newly developed strategic plan. The APHR lives the values of Waterloo's unique culture, and is a role model in leadership, learning and growth, fostering relationships and getting things done in a complex environment. Reporting directly to the Provost, the APHR provides both high-level vision and human resources leadership in service to Waterloo's mission. A senior executive officer of the University, the APHR plays a key role in strategic planning and decisions affecting many areas. Positions reporting to the APHR include: Director, Human Resources; Director, Organizational and Human Development; and Director, Organization and Leadership Innovation.

In addition to deep and broad experience in a senior human resources role within an academic or other relevant environment, candidates will have demonstrated creative, analytical thought leadership, and the ability to nurture consensus and foster teamwork among a wide variety of stakeholders.

Applications (including a letter and resume) and inquiries may be submitted to Deborah Kornachuk at All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. Consideration of candidates will begin in early May, continuing until the position is filled.

The University respects, appreciates and encourages diversity. Applications from all qualified individuals are encouraged.
