Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Space Environment Physics
The Department of Physics and Engineering Physics at the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, Canada) is pleased to invite applications for a tenured Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Space Environment Physics. The Tier I Canada Research Chair program (www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca<http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/>) selection criteria requires nominees to be outstanding and innovative researchers recognized internationally as leaders in their fields. The successful candidate is expected to have a track record of leading a vibrant externally-funded research program and demonstrate excellence in graduate student and postdoctoral fellow supervision. He/she will conduct a vigorous research program in space physics with a focus on synergistic measurements and model studies of the electrodynamical processes in the Earth’s ionosphere and magnetosphere. The observational part of the program can encompass ground-based remote sensing of the ionosphere and magnetosphere and/or particles and fields measurements of the near-Earth space. Applicants must have experience at the Full or Associate Professor level in a relevant field. The successful applicant will be appointed as a tenured faculty member at the Full Professor or Associate Professor level and will be nominated for a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair. The current research expertise in solar-terrestrial physics at the Department has a strong focus on ground-based radar sensing of the ionosphere and magnetosphere (SuperDARN).
This position includes a comprehensive benefits package. The University of Saskatchewan is committed to supporting employees in need of accommodation in an employment context. All qualified candidates, Canadian and other nationalities are encouraged to apply. The University encourages applications from members of the four designated equity groups (women, members of a visible minority, Indigenous persons, and persons with disabilities). Review of applications will begin in February 2019; however, applications will be accepted and evaluated until the position is filled. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2019.
