Tenure-Track Position in Climate Sciences

St. Francis Xavier University invites applications for a probationary
Tenure Track appointment in Climate/Environment Sciences at the rank of
Assistant Professor commencing July 1, 2017. Salary will be commensurate
with qualifications and experience.

The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. degree in the area of
Climate Sciences or related discipline and must show strong
inter-disciplinary potentials in research and teaching. Experience with
climate models and a demonstrated research excellence through a record
of publications in high-impact peer reviewed journals, will be
considered an asset. The candidate will be expected to teach cross
disciplinary courses in a new inter-disciplinary undergraduate Climate
and Environment program as well as to conduct externally funded research
in the area of Climate Dynamics.

Climate change is now recognized in the science and policy communities
as a risk that needs to be addressed through adaptation as well as
through mitigation. Impacts of a changing climate are already evident in
every region of the world. These impacts will be exacerbated in the
future with significant implications for communities, industry,
infrastructure and ecosystems. The climate emergency we face today
requires that climate scientists develop models and strategies for
solving practical problems using multidisciplinary approaches.
Specifically, there is a need to develop operational climate prediction
tools specific to one or more problems, so climate researchers can have
reliable information to provide sound policy advice on mitigation and
impact prevention strategies. Global and regional climate models, the
same tools used to study physical phenomena, can produce results with
practical applications.

The successful candidate will complement existing expertise in global
and regional climate modelling, paleoclimate and biogeosciences, and is
expected to interact with undergraduate, MSc and PhD students in the
Climate Dynamics group at St. Francis Xavier University led by the
Canada Research Chair in Climate Dynamics and will participate in the
activities of the Climate and Environmental Sciences Institute (under
development). StFX also offers potential collaborations with crossover
into different clusters within StFX’s Strategic Research Plan.
Collaboration with social scientists would be natural within this
framework. Climate and Environmental Sciences at StFX is widely
recognized for the high quality of both its research and teaching. A
Master of Science program is available while PhD students can be
supervised at the StFX campus through an inter-university agreement with
Memorial University of Newfoundland.



Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a
statement of teaching and research interests and the names, addresses
and telephone numbers of three referees. Applicants are encouraged to
submit their application material by email to:

Dr. Petra Hauf
Dean of Science
St. Francis Xavier University
PO Box 5000, Antigonish, NS B2G 2W5 Canada
Email: smacmill@stfx.ca

The review of applications will begin on February 1, 2017 and will
continue until this position is filled. This position is subject to
final budgetary approval.


Only those selected for an interview will be contacted. Preference will
be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents. If you are
selected for an interview for the advertised position, proof of Canadian
citizenship or permanent residency is required. StFX respects diversity
and welcomes applications from visible minority group members, women,
Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities and members of sexual
minority groups.
