In the early 1960s, he was director of a research station in Lancashire, England. In ca.1966 he joined the faculty of The University of Calgary and served as Head of the Department of Biology until 1968 when he resigned in order to concentrate full-time as Director of the Environmental Sciences Centre in Kananaskis.
Cragg was Killam Memorial Professor in 1972, and was also active in a number of international organizations including the Man and Biosphere Programme (MAB) of UNESCO.
