Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Climate and Environment Program or Relevant Department 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: email@example.com 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.
