This award is intended to honour faculty who are representative of outstanding research, scholarly, or creative achievements at the University of New Brunswick. The Award for Excellence in Research promotes and celebrates an environment that supports intellectual inquiry and discovery. 

Eligibility: A candidate must be a full-time tenure-track member of faculty who has been at UNB for a minimum of 5 years and who has maintained an ongoing and active research program over that period.  Individuals are not eligible if they have been previous recipients of the Award.

Nomination: Candidates for the award may either be self-nominated or nominated by a peer or group of peers. The Committee places little value on long lists of signatures supporting a nomination; however, letters or paragraphs of support from knowledgeable sources (current and former students, faculty members, alumni, Department Chairs or Deans) can enhance a nomination. The nomination package should at a minimum consist of a nomination letter no longer than two single spaced pages outlining the ongoing excellence of the candidates’ research program and a Tri-agency CV (NSERC, SSHRC, CIHR) or a Canadian Common CV.   

Nominations will be received by the Office of the Vice-President (Research) and distributed to academic Deans for their input. Ranking and final selection will be based on a record of cumulative research, scholarly, or creative achievement while at UNB. The top three candidates will be considered by the President’s Selection Committee who will make the final award decision. Recipients will be publicly acknowledged at the Fall Convocation ceremony. A monetary contribution to be used in support of the recipient’s research will accompany the award.  Amount is variable. 

This award is made possible by a gracious gift from Dr. Friedrich (Fritz) Grein, Professor Emeritus of Chemistry.  

Further information, including the deadline to apply, application guidelines, and the application form, can be found on the Vice-President (Research) website at
