York University (Toronto, Canada) has a new chair, the WP Scott Chair in E-Librarianship, and applications and proposals are being accepted until 15 October 2009.
I work there and I hope someone with a really exciting research project gets the chair. If you want to take one to three years to really dig into something, while living in a very nice city, please apply, or pass this on to someone who might be interested. Anyone in the world can apply.

A short extract from it:
"York University invites candidates to apply for a limited term appointment of one to three years to engage in groundbreaking, interdisciplinary research and development that will advance libraries. The W. P. Scott Chair in E-Librarianship provides an exciting opportunity to accelerate the development of e-librarianship in support of research, teaching, learning or scholarly communications. The research may be interdisciplinary, with a context that is broader than academic librarianship. The areas of research should be of mutual interest to the candidate and to York University Libraries so that both benefit from a close working relationship.
"A strong commitment to research in any relevant area of e-librarianship such as: e-learning, digital collections, collaborative web spaces, social software, interactive and integrative online services, semantic web or cyberinfrastructure is required. The Chair must have demonstrated success in directing and conducting research or a large project. As a member of the YUL complement, the successful candidate will contribute in an area of the libraries suited to the candidate's area of expertise."
