1. Memorial University seeks Assistant Professor
Biogeography
Newfoundland, Canada

The Geography Department at the Memorial University of Newfoundland
invites applications for a tenure-track position in Biogeography. The
position will be based in Newfoundland, Canada.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach at the undergraduate
and graduate (Master's and PhD) levels; engage in an active, externally
funded research program; and demonstrate commitment to excellence in
both teaching and research. The Geography Department has identified four
research clusters that recognize existing research: climate and
environmental change; globalization, economy, and resources; society,
knowledge, and values; and sustainable communities and regions. A fifth
cluster on human health and security is an identified strategic research
priority.

Application packages must include a current curriculum vitae, a teaching
dossier, a research plan, and the names and addresses of three persons
who can supply a letter of reference. Applications should be directed
to:

Charles Mather, Head
Department of Geography
Memorial University of Newfoundland
St. John's, NL, Canada, A1B 3X9
Fax: 709-864-3119

2. University of Victoria seeks Graduate Students
Arctic Marine Ecosystem Modeling
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

The School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Victoria
seeks Master's and/or PhD students for a project on modeling the arctic
marine ecosystem. The positions will be based in Victoria, British
Columbia, Canada.

Successful candidates will be working with a 1-D model based on the
General Ocean Turbulence Model (GOTM) and/or a regional sea-ice
ecosystem model for the Arctic. Model development focus will be based on
background and interest, and is flexible within the range of sea-ice and
pelagic ecosystems, sulfur and carbon biochemistry, and gas-exchange.
The positions will be focused on modeling, but participation in field
cruises will be encouraged.

Applicants should have a background in ocean or atmospheric physics or
biogeochemistry. Prospective students are required to follow the formal
process for application to the center of graduate studies at the
University of Victoria: http://web.uvic.ca/seos/graduate/index.htm.

Anticipated start date is April 2013.

3. University of Turku seeks Postdoctoral Researcher
Nordic Centre of Excellence
Turku, Finland

The University of Turku seeks a postdoctoral researcher to work on a
project called "Adaptation in Northern Fennoscandia: Local Knowledge and
Adaptive Responses Addressing Regional Challenges." The position is for
fourteen months, and will be based in Turku, Finland.

A PhD completed within the past five years is required. Interests and
abilities within interdisciplinary research collaboration are
emphasized. Methodological skills in the field of geoinformatics are an
essential requirement, and remote sensing skills are a bonus. Applicant
should have a strong background in combining physical and human
geography, preferably with a northern dimension.

Application packages must include a curriculum vitae and list of
publications, a motivation letter including a brief description of
accomplished/participated research projects, contact information of two
referees, and a copy of the PhD degree certificate. Applications should
be emailed as a single file (showing the applicant's name) to Jukka
Kayhko: maageo@utu.fi.

Application deadline: Monday, 22 October 2012 at 3:45 p.m. EET.

For questions, please email:

4. University of Manitoba seeks Research Associate
Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

The Centre for Earth Observation Science (CEOS), Faculty of Environment,
Earth, and Resources, at the University of Manitoba seeks a research
associate. The position will be based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

The successful candidate will complement multidisciplinary research on
ocean-sea ice-atmosphere (OSA) exchange of heat and climatically
relevant trace gases within marine, sea ice and estuarine environments
of the arctic and sub-arctic coastal zone. Applicants should have
backgrounds in micrometeorology, oceanography, climatology or related
fields. The ideal candidate will have a good understanding of the
physics of heat and mass exchanges across the OSA, basic physical
oceanography, and water carbonate chemistry. Background or knowledge of
eddy covariance systems would be an asset, as would experience in
ship-based research. The successful candidate will be expected to
provide research leadership and support within a number of existing and
proposed projects.

A Master's degree in oceanography, meteorology, physical geography,
environmental science (limnology), or a closely related physical science
in required, as are a minimum of two years' relevant experience.
Experience working on arctic research icebreakers and/or arctic field
programs preferred, and familiarity with web software is considered an
asset.

Start date: Thursday, 1 November 2012, or as soon as possible.
