        University of Saskatchewan
        Global Institute for Water Security and School of Environment and Sustainability
        Full-time Tenure-track Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor in Watershed Modelling

        The School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) at the University of Saskatchewan (U of S) invites applications for a full-time tenure-track faculty position at the level of assistant, associate, or full professor. The successful candidate will join a core interdisciplinary science and modelling team to support the development of a $30 million research programme within the University’s Global Institute for Water Security (GIWS) led by Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Water Security, Howard Wheater. The Institute combines expertise in natural sciences, engineering and social sciences and brings together over 120 faculty, scientists, students and post-doctoral fellows to address the local, regional and global challenges of water security. World-class facilities include the Canadian Light Source synchrotron, the Toxicology Centre, the Centre for Hydrology and Environment Canada’s National Hydrology Research Centre, in which GIWS is housed. We anticipate appointing either a young scientist of outstanding promise or a senior Faculty member with a recognized track record of international leadership in his or her field. A senior appointee would be expected to play a leading role in the management and further development of GIWS in collaboration with Director Howard Wheater and Associate Director Jeffrey McDonnell.

        The appointee will be required to address one or more of the core themes of the CERC programme (Climate Change and Water Security, Land-Water Management and Environmental Change, Sustainable Development of Natural Resources) and to contribute to the development of interdisciplinary water research across the U of S and with external partners such as Environment Canada. One major focus for interdisciplinary research is the Saskatchewan River Basin Project, a World Climate Research Programme Regional Hydroclimate Project that builds on a set of world-class observatories to develop improved hydrological, water quality and water resource models for decision support. GIWS also leads Canada’s Changing Cold Regions Network, a $5 million multi-institutional effort that addresses environmental change in the interior of Western Canada, from the Rocky Mountains to the Arctic Ocean. Expertise is specifically required in the area of watershed modelling, with preference given to candidates with experience of working at large scales. Ability to teach statistical/stochastic hydrology is also required, and experience of remote sensing data assimilation would be an advantage. The candidate will also be expected to teach in the broader SENS curriculum.

        Successful candidates must have a PhD and an established national or international reputation for research in one of the core themes of the CERC programme listed above. Excellence will be demonstrated through recent peer reviewed papers and citations in top tier journals, the ability to secure research funding and a proven track record of teaching and research supervision (scaled to years since PhD and desired rank at appointment). Excellent interpersonal skills are required, and evidence of successful research collaboration with national stakeholders and international researchers is desirable. For senior appointees, evidence of administrative experience relevant to managing and/or developing a research unit is essential.

        Successful candidates will be appointed to a position within SENS, but may also seek a joint appointment with another academic unit, if desired and appropriate. A junior appointment will be tenure track. For a senior appointee, appointment with tenure is possible, where justified by a documented track record that meets the standards for research and teaching at the University of Saskatchewan. Review of applications will begin May 12, 2014, and continue until suitable candidates are found. Salary bands for this post are as follows: Assistant Professor:$86,844 - $104,357; Associate Professor: $104,357 - $121,871 and Professor: $121,871 - $142,303). This position comes with a comprehensive benefits package which includes pension plan, life insurance (compulsory and voluntary), academic long term disability, sick leave, travel insurance, death benefit, dental plan, extended health and vision care plan, employee assistance program and flexible health and wellness spending program.

        The U of S is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada (www.tourismsaskatoon.com), a city of ~250,000 on the South Saskatchewan River with a diverse and thriving economic base, a strong research cluster, a vibrant arts community and a full range of leisure opportunities. The boreal forest and world-class recreational opportunities exist within a 1.5 hour drive north of Saskatoon. The University has a reputation for excellence in teaching, research and scholarly activities, and offers a full range of undergraduate, graduate and professional programs to a student population of about 20,000. The University is one of Canada’s leading research-intensive universities. For information about the U of S, SENS and GIWS, please visit , www.usask.ca/sens and www.usask.ca/water.

        The University of Saskatchewan is committed to employment equity. Members of designated groups (women, aboriginal people, people with disabilities and visible minorities) are encouraged to self-identify on their applications. Applications will be judged solely on academic promise and achievement, but for candidates of equal ability, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.

        To be considered for this opportunity, please send your CV, a letter of introduction, the names of three referees, and a summary of your research vision (1-page) and graduate training philosophy (1 page) in confidence to:

        Corpus Christi College

        Instructors interested in teaching at Corpus Christi College, Vancouver

        Corpus Christi College is a Catholic College operating on the premises of Saint Mark’s College on the campus of the University of British Columbia. Currently Corpus Christi offers a range of courses in first- and second-years from which students can transfer to public institutions to complete a Bachelor of Arts. For our mission statement, please see our website www.corpuschristi.ca

        In the two-year program Corpus Christi College offers the Associate of Arts Degree in four streams: "Faith and Culture", "Global Studies", "Science and the Environment", and "Business Studies". To support these programs with their range of required courses as well as electives we must be prepared to offer a diverse range of courses across the Extended Liberal Arts tradition. Each course is articulated so that it is transferable to a public institution. But each course is taught so that it is responsive in appropriate ways to their contributions to the Catholic intellectual tradition. Currently we have a cohort of very dedicated teachers for a number of disciplines but not for all. Since we hope to grow our operation we need to be able to expand our resources.

        Next fall we will be launching our own Bachelors program through the charter of Saint Mark’s College. It will be a BA in "Theology and Culture" with three concentrations in Theology/Religious Studies, English and History.

        We are not necessarily hiring in all these areas for next year but we would like to build a roster of interested educators who would like to be considered for an appointment when we are in a position to add to our faculty.

        The academic disciplines for which we need to increase our faculty roster for next fall include:

        • History (Medieval, Modern, Canadian)
        • Geography
        • Film Studies
        • Communications
        • Art History
        • Sociology

        With our current faculty, we also offer courses in English, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Classical Studies, Spanish, Psychology, Political Science, Anthropology, Biology, Physics, Social Justice and Peace Studies, Economics, and Business Studies.

        At the present the majority of our faculty members are sessional appointments who teach one, two or three courses each year. As we grow, we hope to increase the proportion of our faculty members who have appointments with more security. If you would like to be considered for a future appointment and you have the following three qualifications, please contact us in writing. The three qualifications include: academic accomplishment to the level of a Ph.D., ideally some teaching experience, and the willingness to support the Catholic context of our academic and student life programs.

        This is not an announcement of any specific offer of employment. It is an invitation to express interest should we have the opportunity to make an appointment in your field of interest.

        Please send your letter of introduction and your CV to:

        The Department of Environment and Resource Studies - ERS (http://uwaterloo.ca/environment-resource-studies/) invites applications for a tenured or tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank, in the area of social innovation for resilience in linked social-ecological systems, with a special emphasis on the role of social media in social innovation.

        The Waterloo Institute for Social Innovation and Resilience (WISIR) (http://www.sig.uwaterloo.ca) is based in the Faculty of Environment with faculty members in the Department of Environment and Resource Studies and the School for Environment Enterprise and Development. This position will be based within the Department of Environment and Resource Studies. The successful candidate will join the WISIR interdisciplinary team of researchers focused on innovation in intractable social-ecological problem domains where the interface may include - but is not limited to - social and technical innovation and its impact on the transformation of a wide range of problem domains. Academic training in and experience with complexity theory, innovation theory, resilience theory and their application to linked social-ecological problem domains would be an asset.

        Under the auspices of ERS, WISIR is currently initiating a new course based Master’s degree in social-ecological innovation, geared at attracting change agents from private, public and not for profit organizations as well as researchers interested in the topic area. The successful candidate would have primary responsibility for teaching within this program. To that end, the critical skill a candidate needs is an ability to teach a course in the relationship between social media, social networks and innovation.

        • Governance for Social-Ecological Innovation
        • Social Finance
        • System/Institutional Entrepreneurship

        The Department of Environment and Resource Studies offers an undergraduate program that admits over 100 students annually, the department already offers a dedicated master's and a doctoral degree (combined admission of about 30 students annually). For four decades, the Department of Environment and Resource Studies has promoted and advanced transdisciplinary approaches to human-environment relations. Three broad conceptual themes guide our teaching, learning, and scholarly inquiry:

        • assessing the theoretical foundations and practical implications of progress toward a sustainable society, and application of this analysis as a broad context for specific work;
        • understanding socio-ecological interrelations as dynamic complex systems vulnerable to being over-stressed by human activities; and
        • examining conventional and alternative social arrangements, including institutions and tools of governance, as means of improving human wellbeing and environmental responsibility.

        WISIR was established in the Faculty of Environment in 2010. It is primarily a research institute, with a focus on:

        • analyzing intractable problem domains as complex systems that are best understood by using a system perspective as well as a resilience framework to illuminate the dynamics of change and continuity
        • understanding the dynamics of social innovation, including the origin of social inventions, how social inventions are disseminated and how they are scaled up to change the broader institutional context including the broad social, economic and cultural rules which govern our society and environment.
        • understanding the roles and skills of social entrepreneurs, institutional entrepreneurs and policy entrepreneurs and how they interact to catalyze and support the dynamics of social innovation.

        WISIR participates in Social Innovation Generation, a Canada wide initiative funded by the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation to build the capacity for social innovation in Canada.

        There are many opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration at the University of Waterloo, which has increasing strength across faculties in complexity, resilience and innovation. ERS and WISIR work closely with such centers as the Waterloo Institute for Complexity and Innovation (WICI), the Centre for Ecosystem Resilience and Adaptation (ERA), the Conrad Business, Entrepreneurship &Technology Centre (CBET), the Centre for Knowledge Integration (CKI) and the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI).

        Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent; an active fundable research program relevant to a transdisciplinary approach as described in this ad; demonstrated ability in publishing in relevant peer-reviewed journals; and demonstrated commitment to and quality of teaching at all levels.

        Université Laval
        Department of Geomatics Sciences
        Tenure-track Geomatics Professor in Geospatial Information Systems

        The Department of Geomatics Sciences at Université Laval is seeking to fill a tenure-track academic position in geospatial information systems (GIS). Requisite expertise includes the design and the application of spatial analysis methods (2D/3D) and geospatial database design methodology. Université Laval (www.ulaval.ca) is one of the ten largest research universities in Canada, with more than 45,000 students. It is located in Quebec City, a UNESCO World Heritage City, with one of the highest qualities of life in North America. The Department of Geomatics Sciences (www.scg.ulaval.ca) consists of 17 full-time professors, more than 250 undergraduate students (future engineers and land-surveyors), and about 50 graduate students (M.Sc. and Ph.D.). It offers 9 training programs in Geomatics, some unique in Canada, which are certified by Professional associations (Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec and the Ordre des arpenteurs-géomètres du Québec). The Department’s research activities are coordinated primarily through the Centre for Research in Geomatics - CRG (www.crg.ulaval.ca), recognized for its leadership and multidisciplinarity. It created GEOIDE, one of the Canadian Network of Centres of Excellence in geomatics (www.geoide.ulaval.ca), which has always been directed by a member of the CRG at Université Laval, and Quebec’s newly created innovation network in convergence of geospatial intelligence (abbreviated as ®CRG) The Department of Geomatics Sciences also offers other important initiatives in research such as a Canada Research Chair in Cognitive Geomatics, a Geospatial Data Augmented Reality laboratory, a Ge@design laboratory, and a laboratory for the Exploration of Immersive Medias for Human Rehabilitation.

        Position description

        Today, the design of GIS solutions requires the consideration of the new realities associated with a “wired” society and social networks. These include a broad variety of users, the need to obtain responses in real time, regardless of the location, and an increased risk associated with inappropriate and unplanned uses of geospatial data. Accordingly, the research activities of the incumbent will have to be oriented toward the development and application of spatial analysis methods (2D/3D) as well as database design methods which take this context into account. The successful candidate will teach regular classes at the undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate levels, and perform leading-edge research regarding geospatial information systems (GIS). He/she will also need to supervise students at all three levels, and develop the means to obtain his/her own research funding, including the development of public and private partnerships. He/she will also need to demonstrate openness to multidisciplinary collaboration. Moreover, he/she will participate in departmental activities and in those of the Centre for Research in Geomatics (CRG) and the University.

        McGill University
        Department of Geography
        Tenure-track Associate Professor in Terrestrial Global Hydrology & Climatology

        Applications are invited for a tenure-track position at the Associate Professor level in the Department of Geography beginning July 1, 2013.

        The appointee’s teaching and research will focus on modelling large basin, continental or global-scale stores and movement of freshwater. We are particularly interested in someone whose research couples large scale hydrology with changes in climate, land cover/use, and/or the human appropriation of water, and their effect on the freshwater hydrological cycle. Research should emphasize 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 the undergraduate Earth System Science program at McGill University. 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.

        Such a position would be consistent with the inter-disciplinary Environment theme elaborated in the McGill ‘White Paper’: http://www.mcgill.ca/files/provost/Strengths_and_Aspirations_June_2006.pdf.

        It is also consistent with the greater attention to ‘sustainability’ that has been adopted by McGill.

        Applicants must possess a PhD and have demonstrated excellence in research, teaching and communication. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

        McGill University is committed to equity in employment and diversity. It welcomes applications from indigenous peoples, visible minorities, ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, women, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities and others who may contribute to further diversification. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply; however, in accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada.

        Candidates should ensure that their curriculum vitae, statements of teaching specializations and research interests, up to three reprints, and letters from three referees are sent to the following address. The review of applications will begin March 19, 2013 and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Consultation with students outside of scheduled teaching hours is required. Additional duties will include inventory and maintenance of field and laboratory equipment, software license updates, and the maintenance and use of the Departmental map collections. Duties also include graduate student teaching assistant coordination. Contribution to field course(s) outside of regular semester teaching may be requested.

        Located in southern Alberta, Lethbridge offers a sunny, dry climate that is surprisingly mild for the prairies, excellent cultural and recreational amenities and attractive economic conditions. Founded in 1967, the University has an enrolment of over 8,000 students. For more information about the University, please visit our web site at http://www.uleth.ca, or the Department’s web site at http://www.uleth.ca/artsci/geography.

        The University of British Columbia, Vancouver invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Instructor I position in the Department of Geography (http://www.geog.ubc.ca/).

        The incumbent’s academic appointment will be in the Department of Geography, but s/he is expected to dedicate about 2/3 of workload towards the University’s new International Program to be launched in 2014. The program’s mandate is to offer a first-year curriculum to international students from domestic schools in emerging countries in preparation for entry to the second year of degree programs in Arts or Sciences. The mandate of the program includes the development and implementation of innovative teaching practices. The initial cohort of Arts students (with a target enrolment of 150) will arrive in the fall of 2014 and the program will deliver sections of Geography 121 and Geography 122, amongst other courses. In the academic year 2013/4 the Instructor in Geography will join with instructors in Psychology and Political Science as well as English language instructors to develop the pedagogy and curriculum for the program. In addition the appointee will teach undergraduate classes in the Department of Geography.

        The ideal candidate would be a broadly trained human geographer capable of presenting both a historical and contemporary thematic approach to world geography. The minimum qualification is a doctoral degree in a field directly relevant to geography education. As this is a tenure-track position, an Instructor I who in later years is reviewed for tenure and promotion to Senior Instructor will be required to show evidence of excellence in teaching, demonstrated educational leadership, distinction in the field of teaching and learning, sustained and innovative contributions to curriculum development, course design and other initiatives that advance the University’s ability to excel in its teaching and learning mandate. Experience in teaching international students, professional associations supporting geography education, research in pedagogy, arts curriculum development, and the integration of innovative teaching practices and technologies into the curriculum is highly desirable. It is expected that Senior Instructors will keep abreast of current developments in their respective disciplines and in the field of teaching and learning. A Senior Instructor may be reviewed for promotion to the rank of Professor of Teaching in the fifth and subsequent years in that rank.

        Applicants should submit the following: a curriculum vita; a statement of teaching philosophy and interests; evidence of content area expertise, teaching effectiveness (such as student evaluations), and experience with emerging technologies in teaching and learning; and names and contact information for three referees. Applications should be addressed to:

        The position is subject to final budgetary approval. The expected starting date is July 1, 2013.

        The University of British Columbia hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment equity and diversity within its community. We especially welcome applications from members of visible minority groups, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to engage productively with diverse communities. We encourage all qualified persons to apply; Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will, however, be given priority.
