The successful applicant will be based in the Department of Geography, and will focus on the development and application of hydrological and/or hydroclimate models.

        Depending on qualification and experience, the Chair will be appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor (tenure-track) or Associate Professor (with tenure). An appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor requires the completion of a PhD, evidence of successful teaching ability or professional experience, with evidence of appropriate research or professional activity beyond that involved in the completion of academic or professional training. Appointment to the rank of Associate Professor requires a PhD, evidence of teaching effectiveness, recognized research attainment or equivalent professional attainment, and a satisfactory record of service.

        In alignment with the University of Calgary’s Eyes High strategic vision and in support of its academic priorities of leadership, teaching and research integration, and creating a dynamic environment to promote research excellence, the Chair will actively contribute to research, teaching and curriculum development, student/postdoc supervision, and is in time expected to grow into a leadership role within the Department and institution.

        Tier II Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars (i.e., candidates must have been an active researcher in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination). Candidates who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree and who have had career breaks, such as maternity, parental, or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc., may have their eligibility for a Tier II Chair assessed through the program’s Tier II justification process.

        The successful candidate is expected to have expertise in the hydrological sciences and will establish a strong research program in the areas of water resources, hydrological extremes (e.g. drought/flood), and climate change. This research could be conducted at a variety of scales (regional, continental, global). Tier II CRCs have the potential to achieve international recognition in the next five to ten years and are expected to attract external funding as well as excellent trainees, students, and future researchers to support research activities. A demonstrated ability to develop and teach a range of undergraduate and graduate courses on topics related to the Chair position is required

        Interested individuals are encouraged to submit an application online via the ‘Apply Now’ link. Please be aware that the application process allows for only four attachments.
