Dalhousie is a leading innovative, research-intensive university, inspiring our diverse scholarly community to serve Nova Scotia, our region, our nation, and the world. We make a lasting impact by blending transformative academic programs with pioneering research on Canada’s East Coast.
Dalhousie brings together the brightest minds from diverse perspectives to drive the region’s intellectual, social, and economic development. We are committed to fostering a respectful and inclusive space for everyone who works or studies at the university.
Dalhousie’s Talent Pathways temporary staffing program connects skilled and talented individuals with short-term hybrid and in-person job opportunities in Faculties and Administrative Units across our East Coast campuses.
Talent Pathways supports Dalhousie’s strategic plans on equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility by creating opportunities for folks from underrepresented communities experiencing barriers to employment. A temporary placement is a “foot in the door” to gain valuable experience in a unionized academic environment which increases the chances of finding an on-going position at Dal.
