The Department of Geography and Planning, College of Arts and Science,
University of Saskatchewan invites applications for a tenure track position
in Physical Geography at the rank of Assistant Professor. This is a
tenure-stream, Academic Programming Appointment (APA) at the rank of
Assistant Professor that is primarily focussed on teaching and program
delivery. Start date is *July 1, 2017.*

Applicants should have a PhD (or equivalent) in geography or a related
discipline. The successful candidate will have a demonstrable capacity for
high-quality graduate and undergraduate teaching. The successful candidate
will be expected to deliver undergraduate and graduate courses in physical
geography. Administrative duties are required.

This new position will add a teaching-focused (APA) faculty member in
physical geography who has the vision, time, drive, and expertise to
contribute to the continued delivery and renewal of our undergraduate
programming. Our vision is that this new APA faculty member, a physical
geographer, will have expertise at the intersection of environmental
management and science, and will possess the quantitative skills (e.g.
GIScience, geostatistics, spatial modeling) and field research capabilities
needed for the development of innovative, engaging, and practical
experiential learning opportunities that will enhance our undergraduate
programming in physical geography. We also anticipate that the new hire
would expand professional development opportunities for our undergraduates
through, for example, new and enhanced co-op learning initiatives with
community, government, and industry partners to ensure student job
readiness upon degree completion.

Teaching in physical geography (including environmental management) in the
department plays an important role in the BASc degree in Environment and
Society and in the BSc degree in Environmental Earth Sciences, the latter
of which leads to professional accreditation with the Association of
Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS). Physical
geography also contributes to the training of undergraduate students in
other programs, both within our College (e.g., BSc degrees in Geology and
Environmental Biology) and in other Colleges (e.g., BSc in Renewable
Resource Management and BSA in Environmental Science, College of
Agriculture and Bioresources; and the Certificate of Proficiency in
Sustainability, SENS).

The College of Arts & Science offers a dynamic combination of programs in
the humanities and fine arts, the social sciences and the sciences. There
are over 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students in the College and 325
faculty, including 12 Canada Research Chairs. The College emphasizes
student and faculty research, interdisciplinary programs, community
outreach and international opportunities.

The University of Saskatchewan, situated in Saskatoon, SK, is a major
research intensive institution of about 21,000 students on what is
considered the most pleasant university campus in Canada. Saskatoon is a
growing, vibrant city with a richly diverse natural and built environment.
