Cisco Chair in e-Governance
The Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy (JSGS) invites applications for a newly established research chair in e-Governance, to be located at its University of Regina campus. The school seeks a leading scholar with an international reputation and who will thrive in a highly interdisciplinary environment.
The primary work of the chair will be to develop an ambitious research program that will examine how governments can more effectively communicate with citizens, businesses and other governments through enhanced use of technologies such as video, information sharing and online collaboration. Possible research areas may include exploring and developing best practices in sharing information, promoting services, recruiting and retaining employees, conducting surveys, engaging the public, ‘virtual government’, collaborating internally, social media and creating new strategic partnerships. The chair will develop collaborations with colleagues in the school and with those at other institutions throughout Canada and abroad. The chair is expected to recruit, teach and mentor graduate students. Download full posting for more information.
