The ideal candidate will have the ability to relate glacial geology to soil formation and land use. Knowledge of sedimentary rocks and fluvial processes is expected. The position involves teaching undergraduate courses in Glacial Geology, Sedimentology, occasionally Introductory Geology, and participation in a graduate course in Environmental Geology. The candidate will be expected to supervise graduate students and initiate and maintain a vigorous, externally funded research program. Research in genesis and stratigraphy of Pleistocene glacial sediments with emphasis on land resources and the environment will be expected. As well, collaborative research is encouraged with colleagues in other aspects of groundwater geology, soil science, environmental engineering, and plant agriculture. The successful applicant will join an active department that consists of 17 faculty members (3 hired within the past two years), 5 full-time technicians (one devoted to assisting with teaching of geology courses), 55 graduate students and over 100 undergraduate students. Included among department instrumentation are x-ray diffraction, atomic absorption flame and graphite furnace, automated colorimetric systems, inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrophotometer, isotope ratio mass spectrometer (15N configured), ion chromatography, thin sectioning equipment (both rock and unconsolidated materials), ground penetrating radar, image analysis hardware and software. For field trips and research, Guelph is located in a classical glaciated landscape within two-hours drive of excellent exposures of Pleistocene glacial sediments along the north shore of Lakes Ontario and Erie. Opportunities exist for collaboration with a strong geomorphology group in the Department of Geography at Guelph and geology programs in neighboring universities (e.g. Waterloo, McMaster). Qualifications: Ph.D. degree in Geology or closely related discipline.

      Curriculum vitae including details of academic program, names of three referees, and a list of publications should be sent to Dr. T.J.
