The McGill School of Environment (MSE) invites applications for the Liber Ero (I will be free) Chair in Environment at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.

The Chair holder will have an internationally recognized record of interdisciplinary environmental research that demonstrates ability to integrate approaches of the natural and applied sciences with those of the social sciences and humanities.

He/she will have demonstrated success in attracting external research funding and leading interdisciplinary research teams, teaching at both the postgraduate and undergraduate levels,
and engaging with decision-makers regarding environmental issues.

The MSE was founded in 1998 on the principle that the resolution of current and future environmental problems requires a highly integrated and interdisciplinary approach that is informed by both the natural and applied sciences and the social sciences and humanities. The MSE uses this approach in training the next generation of leaders through a set of novel, interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate programs, and through innovative interdisciplinary research in environment. www.mcgill.ca/mse<http://www.mcgill.ca/mse>

The Liber Ero Chair provides the opportunity for the successful candidate to have a transformative influence on research and education within the MSE and McGill University, and on environmental challenges in Canada and internationally.

The Chair holder will help define and consolidate areas of research emphasis, will foster collaborations within and beyond the MSE, and will serve as an advisor to the MSE Director.

We seek a person of broad intellectual scope with a deep understanding of the world’s most pressing environmental problems.

We anticipate that this MSE appointment will be at the rank of Full Professor but Associate Professors who fit the profile will also be considered.
