Our Researchers

The Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change consolidates arguably Canada’s most prominent portfolio of urban scholars, whose work spans innovative theoretical thinking, empirically driven research and policy-oriented practice. These researchers boost York University’s intensive research reputation through their interdisciplinary scholarship, diversity of perspectives, and commitment to sustainability, environmental protection and social justice. They consider community engagement when addressing environmental change, urbanization, sustainability and justice.

Faculty research gives students field-based and hands-on learning, with direct connections to “real world” issues. Students appreciate the complexity of environmental issues while earning the skills and making the relationships that can translate into meaningful careers.

Visiting Scholars/Researchers are welcome to participate in the supportive, interdisciplinary community of scholars at York and EUC, and will have opportunities to present their research at seminars.

    • The positions are available for periods ranging from one month to one academic year. Summer-only appointments are not possible, but an appointment may extend over the summer months.
