Tenure-track Associate Professor in Terrestrial Global Hydrology &
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’:
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
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.
