    McGill University
      Department of Geography
        Terrestrial Global Hydrology and Climatology

        Applications are invited for a tenure-track position in geography. The successful candidate’s teaching and research will focus on modelling large basin, continental or global-scale movement of freshwater. We are particularly interested in someone whose research couples hydrology with changes in climate, land cover/use, and/or water utilization, and their effect on the freshwater hydrological cycle. The emphasis should be on geophysical controls, biogeochemical transfers, links with climate, and/or integration across scales in hydrological systems.

        Resolving the global water cycle and determining how human activity is altering this cycle is recognized as a “grand challenge” in a new inter-departmental undergraduate program in Earth System Science (ESS). Because hydrology is a key connection between the terrestrial biosphere and the atmosphere and oceans, the successful candidate will make a crucial contribution both to the introductory courses in Earth System Science and to the development of upper level and graduate courses in ESS. Expertise in global terrestrial hydrology will be an obvious asset in McGill’s FQRNT-funded Global Environmental and Climate Change Centre, and complement existing expertise in land use/land cover change, biogeochemistry, landscape ecology, and fluvial and periglacial geomorphology in the Department of Geography, and atmospheric and oceanic geophysics in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences.

        The appointee will be part of the core faculty in the newly established undergraduate Earth System Science program at McGill University. Six new positions will be filled within the next year to support this program, two in each of the departments directly involved in the program: Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Earth and Planetary Sciences, and Geography. Three of these appointments will deal specifically with the area of water, a resource of increasing global value. The appointee will be expected to participate in team-teaching of the core courses of the ESS program, establish links and collaborations with researchers in other units (e.g., Brace Centre for Water Resources Management, McGill School of Environment) and maintain an active research program.

        Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statements of research interests and teaching philosophy, and the names and addresses of three referees to:

        Prof. Gordon Ewing
        Chair, Department of Geography
        McGill University
        805 Sherbrooke Street West
        Montreal, Quebec, Canada, H3A 2K6.

        For additional information about the Department see http://www.geog.mcgill.ca.

        The anticipated start date for the positions is September 1, 2005. Review of the applications will begin in May 2005 and continue until the position is filled.

        All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply. However, Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. McGill University is committed to equity in employment.

    UBC Okanagan
      Economy, Culture and Space

      The University of British Columbia, ranked 35th among the world's top 500 universities last year, has an immediate need for 40 new research faculty as it prepares to open a major new campus in B.C.'s Okanagan Valley in September 2005. Growing out of the current Okanagan University College, UBC Okanagan has a mandate to develop graduate programs, and double in size to 7,500 students by 2009.

      With an eventual need for 240 new positions (including a number of Canada Research Chairs), UBC's new campus offers an unbeatable academic opportunity.
