He didn’t get the job he really wanted, but this well-known Zoomer has no trouble keeping busy.

Former Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff is taking half-time teaching posts at Harvard and the University of Toronto.

Ignatieff joins the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto with a half-time appointment as professor this month.

In January he is to assume a half-time appointment as professor of practice at the Harvard Kennedy School.

The 65-year-old academic and author had already been teaching some courses at the University of Toronto.

Before becoming Liberal leader in 2009, Ignatieff enjoyed a career as an international intellectual, writing books and teaching at universities including Oxford, Cambridge and the Kennedy School at Harvard.

His short-lived political career ended in 2011 when the Liberals suffered their worst-ever election defeat and he lost his own seat in the Commons.
