Tier II Canada Research Chair in Chemistry of the Ocean and Atmosphere

The Department of Chemistry, Memorial University of Newfoundland, invites
applications for a full-time tenure-track Tier 2 Canada Research Chair
(CRC) in Chemistry of the Ocean and Atmosphere. The successful applicant
will be required to develop an internationally recognized, externally
funded research program in analytical or environmental chemistry, with
applications in areas such as chemical processes at the ocean-atmosphere
interface, marine aerosols, or the transport and fate of pollutants in the
environment. The proposed research program should fit into the areas
identified in Memorial’s Research Strategy Framework (
http://www.mun.ca/research/framework/themes.php). The position requires a
PhD in Chemistry, post-doctoral experience and an excellent track record in
research relevant to the Chair’s mandate (http://www.chem.mun.ca/
recruit/CRC_CHEM_ocean_atmosphere.pdf). An aptitude for teaching is also
required as the appointee will be responsible for teaching analytical and
environmental chemistry courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels,
as well as first year chemistry as required. The salary will be
commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Tier 2 CRC’s are intended for exceptional emerging scholars with less than
10 years of experience as an active researcher in their field at the time
of nomination. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned
their highest degree and where career breaks exist (such as maternity,
parental, or extended sick leave, etc.) may have their eligibility for a
Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process.
It is expected that the successful candidate will have a level of
scholarship/publication record commensurate with current NSERC Tier 2 chair
holders in Chemistry. Applicants are encouraged to consult the CRC website
for full program information, including further details on eligibility
criteria (http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/home-accueil- eng.aspx). Please
note that the individual selected will be subject to review and final
approval by the Chairs Secretariat. The appointment will be made at the
rank of Assistant Professor. This is subject to final budgetary approval by
the University.

The Chemistry Department currently has 20 faculty and more than 80 graduate
students in research programs supported by NSERC and other provincial,
federal, international, and industrial funding agencies. Research is
supported with modern instrumentation in all areas of chemistry. Interested
candidates are invited to review the Chemistry Department home page at
http://www.mun.ca/chem for further information. Applicants should send a
cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching interests and
philosophy, a 5-page research proposal in NSERC format, and the names and
contact information (including e-mail addresses) of three referees:
