Assistant/Associate/Full Professor Arctic Climate Modelling, University of Manitoba, Canada

Application deadline: 23 May 2019

The University of Manitoba invites applications for a tenured or tenure track position at the Assistant, Associate or Full professor level. The successful candidate will have a background and proven track record in the areas of numerical modelling of the Arctic ocean-sea ice-atmosphere system, modelling of glacier-marine freshwater coupling, terrestrial freshwater-marine coupled modelling, or climate change modelling with a particular emphasis on Arctic-midlatitude teleconnection research. Applicants with recognized expertise in the broad fields of Arctic system level modelling at the local, regional or hemispheric scales and with coupled climate models are strongly encouraged to apply.

The successful candidates will become a member of the Centre for Earth Observation Science (CEOS; http://www.umanitoba.ca/ceos/) in the Department of Environment and Geography, Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth and Resources. CEOS is a focal point of Arctic System Science and Climate Change, an established 'Signature Area' of research excellence at the University of Manitoba (http://umanitoba.ca/research/media/Strategic_Research_Plan.pdf). With more than 150 researchers, students and staff, including a Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) Laureate, a new Canada Excellence Research Chair, a Senior Canada-150 Chair and two existing Canada Research Chairs (CRC) both Tier 1, CEOS is one of the largest and most influential Arctic marine research groups in the world. CEOS' research is supported by a purpose-built Nellie Cournoyea Arctic Research Facility; laboratories for Earth, environmental and material sciences, and applied electromagnetics; the Sea-ice Environmental Research Facility; the Churchill Marine Observatory (CMO); CCGS Amundsen icebreaker, a new coastal research vessel the MV William Kennedy, and numerous field stations across the Arctic. The Arctic Science Partnership (http://asp-net.org) provides added opportunity for international networking.

Responsibilities

The position will have a significant proportion allocated to research in any one of the broad areas of Arctic marine and climate modelling in the specific subdiscipline of the candidate's specialization. The candidate will also be expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels in their area of research. Service will be required both within the University and through various professional and public organizations linked to the candidate's area of expertise.

The successful candidate will be expected to play a major role in the various Arctic System Science and climate change projects led by CEOS at the University of Manitoba, including major new projects focused on freshwater-marine coupling with freshwater sources from glaciers and continental runoff, ocean acidification and carbon exchange processes, physical, biological and chemical oceanography, Arctic-midlatitude teleconnections, and climate change.

Qualifications

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. and aptitude for leading an independently organized and externally funded program in Arctic System Science and Climate Change. Experience in teaching and mentoring graduate students, research associates, and undergraduate students would be an asset. Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
