The Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie University is looking for a new faculty member in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics with application to Physical Oceanography.
The complete ad is attached and pasted below. Please don't be deterred by the stated preference for Canadians -- we have many non-Canadian faculty members (I wasn't Canadian when I was hired).
The Department of Oceanography (http://www.dal.ca/faculty/science/oceanography.html
) at Dalhousie University 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 PhD 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 complements 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 (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 http://www.dal.ca/becounted/selfid
. Please send the complete application to
