Dominique Bérubé, Concordia’s vice-president of research and graduate studies, is making the move to McGill University, where she will assume the role of vice-president of research and innovation. Her last day at Concordia will be June 30, 2024.

Bérubé arrived at Concordia in September 2022. During her tenure, the university reached many significant research milestones, including securing two university-record grants:

“Dominique’s decision is certainly bittersweet for all of us at Concordia. In a short period of time, we all felt the immensely positive impact of her contributions to the university,” says Concordia President Graham Carr.

“Like me, our whole research community was looking forward to working together with Dominique to continue to build Concordia’s research enterprise. Now we’ll just need to make the most of our next six months together,” he adds.

“I’m sure Dominique will accomplish many good things at McGill and I wish her the best of success. But Concordia has many transformative projects on the go, such as our CFREF grant or the School of Health, and we remain committed to their success. To that end, we will begin a search for a new VP immediately in the coming year to ensure the smoothest possible transition.”

Bérubé says it was not an easy decision to move on from Concordia.

“I have made some terrific friends here and learned very much from my colleagues and the university’s outstanding faculty members. Fortunately, the connections I made here will help spark future research collaborations between Concordia and McGill,” she adds.

“I would also like to thank the incredible team in the Office of the Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies, and my colleagues in the senior executive team. They all have been wonderful.”

Prior to arriving at Concordia, Bérubé was vice-president of research at the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). Before that, she served as associate vice-president of research at Université de Montréal and director of the Service de la recherche et de la création at Université du Québec à Montréal.

Bérubé is a member of l’Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec. She holds a BEng in Metallurgical Engineering and an MSc in Material Science, both from École Polytechnique de Montréal, and earned her PhD in Environmental Science from UQÀM.
