The appointment is anticipated to begin on July 1, 2016.

        The successful candidate will have established him/herself as an upcoming leader in problem-oriented, interdisciplinary research in one or more of SENS’ research focal areas: 1) Sustaining Ecosystems; 2) Sustaining Communities; and/or 3) Water Security. We are looking for a dynamic candidate who has a self-funded, innovative and successful research program, engages in creative teaching excellence at the graduate level, and will complement the expertise of the SENS faculty. The successful candidate will join a highly-engaged interdisciplinary faculty working across engineering, social sciences, natural sciences, and physical sciences.

        SENS is a premier site internationally for practicing problem-oriented and socially relevant interdisciplinary research. Our faculty are community-engaged scholars working in a variety of research areas, including water security, policy, governance, food security, environmental health, and Indigenous issues. Our school embraces an interdisciplinary teaching and learning model, and emphasizes hands-on experiential learning and team-teaching.

        The focus on human dimensions and sustainability will move SENS’ vision forward by providing an integrative, crosscutting position to further advance interdisciplinary research within and beyond the School. This position will assist in the facilitation of cross-, trans-, and interdisciplinary connections to enhance the social and policy relevance of natural and physical science research.

        Requirements include:

        • A PhD in a relevant area of research;

        • A proven track record of innovative graduate and/or undergraduate teaching;
        • Excellent interpersonal skills, as demonstrated through collaborative interdisciplinary interactions, community engagement, and faculty collegiality; and,
        • Experience with interdisciplinary research partnerships.

        Familiarity with the biophysical sciences is desirable, as is experience with graduate supervision. Researchers who work on the behavioural dimensions of sustainability, including the structural aspects of environmental problems and the roles of norms, perceptions of risk and conflict, and how environmental problems come to be defined within society will be favoured.

        The successful candidate will be appointed to a tenure-track position in the School of Environment and Sustainability. In addition to the tenure track appoint-ment, there is also a possibility to hire a 5-year term appointment out of this search. Review of applications will begin September 11, 2015, and continue until a suitable candidate is identified. Salary bands for this post are as follows: Assistant Professor - $90,796 to $109,108.
