Canada Research Chair – Tier II

Geophysical Fluid Dynamics with Application To Physical Oceanography

The Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie University 
(www.dal.ca/faculty/science/oceanography.html) is seeking applicants for 
a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (GFD) with 
application to physical oceanography.

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in physical oceanography or 
related field, and have demonstrated research excellence in GFD. The 
candidate is expected to make effective use of (i) state-of-the-art 
models to better understand, and possibly predict, changes in the 
physical properties of the deep ocean and/or adjacent shelf seas, and 
(ii) modern data assimilation techniques in order to blend model 
predictions with observations. The successful candidate must have the 
potential to develop a collaborative and productive research program 
that is complementary to the ongoing research activities of the 
Department of Oceanography and other departments in the Faculty of 
Science (e.g., Physics and Atmospheric Science), and also engage with 
local, federally-funded research organizations and the national and 
international research community. In addition to research excellence, 
the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the teaching 
and service mandates of Dalhousie University.

The Canada Research Chair (CRC) program was established by the 
Government of Canada to attract outstanding researchers to Canadian 
universities (www.chairs.gc.ca <http://www.chairs.gc.ca>). The CRC 
program expects Tier II nominees to be excellent emerging researchers 
who have demonstrated research creativity and potential to achieve 
international recognition.

The successful candidate will be appointed to a tenure stream position 
at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. Review of applications 
will begin on December 1, 2016 but applications will continue to be 
accepted until the position is filled.  The anticipated start date is 1 
July, 2017 or as negotiated. The application should include a detailed 
/curriculum vitae/, a two to three page description of current research 
and accomplishments, three representative publications, the names and 
contact information of three referees, and a completed Self-ID 
questionnaire which is available at www.dal.ca/becounted/selfid 
<http://www.dal.ca/becounted/selfid>. Please send the complete 
application to

/Dalhousie University is recognized internationally for its world-class 
academic programs and as one of Canada’s leading research institutions. 
With its 200^th anniversary on the horizon in 2018, Dalhousie continues 
to welcome talented scholars and encourages them to join its mission to 
make a lasting impact through the discovery, advancement and sharing of 
knowledge. The university // is heavily involved in a number of major 
ocean-related research initiatives. A recent example is the new Ocean 
Frontier Institute (OFI; //www.dal.ca/ofi/ <http://www.dal.ca/ofi>/) 
which will bring together researchers and institutes from across the 
globe to understand our changing oceans and create safe, sustainable 
solutions for ocean development. (The OFI will be supported by a $93.7M 
award from  the Canada First Research Excellence Fund program (CFREF; 
//www.cfref-apogee.gc.ca/ <http://www.cfref-apogee.gc.ca>/) and a 
similar contribution from government, private and partners.)///

/This Tier II CRC is reserved for external recruitment.  Only candidates 
who are external to Dalhousie University may apply. Dalhousie is 
committed //to fostering a collegial culture grounded in diversity and 
inclusiveness.  The university encourages applications from qualified 
Aboriginal people, persons with a disability, racially visible persons,
