      Department of Geography

      The Department of Geography at Queen's University at Kingston invites applications for a faculty appointment under the Canada Research Chairs (CRC) Program (Tier II NSERC) in a field relevant to enhancing our scientific understanding of carbon and nitrogen cycles in relation to greenhouse gas dynamics and ecosystem management. This position fits within the Environment and Sustainability Cluster of the University's Strategic Plan ( http://www.queensu.ca/secretariat/senate/policies/resstrategic.html) .

      The Government of Canada has established the CRC Program to foster world-class research excellence in Canadian universities. The Tier II program recognizes exceptional scientists with several years experience beyond the awarding of their doctorate. Applicants should have expertise in an area related to climate change and earth system science with possible specialization in carbon and nitrogen cycling, ecosystem-level trace gas exchanges with the atmosphere, continental-scale dynamics, and/or the analysis and modeling of carbon sequestration and changes in carbon stocks. In the context of Canada’s ratification of the Kyoto Protocol there is a need for research on carbon exchange in Canadian ecosystems at a range of spatial scales. Preference, therefore, will be given to applicants whose work addresses this need either directly through Canadian-based research or indirectly through research focused on similar ecosystems in other areas of the world.

      The successful candidate will have a proven capability to establish and maintain an internationally renowned research program in a research area that will contribute to the goals of BIOCAP Canada (http://www.biocap.ca ), a national research foundation that operates from within Queen's University.
