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 processes. 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 www.uvic.ca/science/seos/.
Faculty at the University of Victoria are governed by the provisions of the

will be given priority.
