The School of Earth and Ocean Sciences (SEOS) at the University of Victoria invites
applications for a Tenure Track Assistant Professor position in Physical Climate Science, to
commence as early as July 2018. We seek applicants with research investigating climate
processes relevant to understanding anthropogenic climate change, who work with large-scale
(global and/or regional) climate models or data. The ideal candidate will collaborate with SEOS
faculty through overlapping interests in, for example, ocean circulation and mixing,
biogeochemical cycles, paleoclimate, or natural climate variability. Excellent opportunities also
exist for collaborative research with scientists associated with the Canadian Centre for Climate
Modelling and Analysis, the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium, and the Pacific Institute for
Climate Solutions, which are located on campus, and the nearby Institute of Ocean Sciences.
SEOS emphasizes an Earth Systems Science approach, and the ideal candidate will be able to
interact broadly with faculty who specialize in solid-earth, earth-surface, ocean and atmosphere

The successful candidate will develop a vigorous, independent, externally-funded research
program that complements existing strengths in SEOS. It is also expected that the candidate will
supervise graduate students and teach undergraduate and graduate courses related to
climate/atmospheric science, and actively contribute to departmental initiatives. A PhD is
required at the time of appointment and post-doctoral experience is desirable. Commensurate
with their career stage, qualified candidates must have an excellent record of research published
in or in preparation for leading scientific journals. Effective teaching and student supervision are
expected, supported by evidence which may include past experience, references, a teaching
statement (see below), and the presentation of a candidacy seminar.

Applications, in a single pdf file, should include a letter of application, a detailed curriculum
vitae, contact information (name, address, email) for three references, a two-page statement
describing the applicant’s teaching experience and philosophy, and a two-page statement
describing their current and future research interests/direction. Applications or requests for
further information should be sent electronically to Dr. Stan Dosso, Director, School of Earth
and Ocean Sciences at seos at uvic.ca. Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2017, and
will continue until a suitable candidate is identified. Information about SEOS can be found at
