1. University of Alaska Anchorage seeks Assistant Professor
Landscape Ecology / Landscape Hydrology
Anchorage, Alaska

The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Alaska
Anchorage (UAA) and the Alaska Experimental Program to Stimulate

(Alaska Adapting to Changing Environments) program
(http://www.alaska.edu/epscor). The EPSCoR program is supporting the
hire of three new, coordinated positions at UAA in the areas of
landscape ecology/hydrology, information visualization, and systems
modeling with the expectation of providing a cluster of expertise that
enhances interdisciplinary research. The successful candidate will be
involved in interdisciplinary research supporting the Alaska EPSCoR ACE
program, and will form the nucleus of faculty in the EPSCoR supported
Center for Adaptation of Northern Social Ecological Systems. The
expected workload per semester for the first four years is 20% teaching
(one three credit course per semester), 20% service, and 60% research.
Teaching assignments could include areas of ecology, ecohydrology,
hydrology, landscape ecology, social-ecological systems, or spatial
analysis.

Review of applications begins: Monday, 22 April 2013.

2. Labrador Institute seeks Research Associate
Aboriginal Community-Based Education Program
Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador, Canada

The Labrador Institute seeks a research assistant for an Aboriginal
community-based education program. This position is located in Happy
Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador, Canada.

The successful applicant will be responsible for research and related
support to the Faculty of Education leading the development of a dynamic
community-based education program based in Labrador for students of
Aboriginal descent. The research associate will develop a program of
studies appropriate to the new community-based teacher education
program, and conduct research that will provide key program-related
information leading to the development of appropriate, evidence-based
curricula for Innu and Inuit education students. The research will
encompass the fields of education, social, historical and political
studies.

Applicants should have experience (5 to 10 years) in designing,
conducting, and reporting research and the development of curricula;

3. Glaciated North Atlantic Margins seeks PhDs and Postdocs
Marine and Glacial Geology

Up to 15 PhD and postdoctoral positions are available with the Glaciated
North Atlantic Margins (GLANAM) project. The positions will be based at
various institutions affiliated with the GLANAM program.

The scientific goal of GLANAM is to determine the controls on the
development, in time and space, of glaciated continental margins.
Research objectives will focus on the role of different
glacial/non-glacial sedimentary processes in shaping the glaciated North
Atlantic margins; the extent, timing, and rates of decay of marine-based
ice sheets; the influence of ice ages on hydrocarbon systems; the
influence of climate change and sedimentary processes on the fluid flow
(and gas hydrate) system; and to identify the controlling factors and
the role of submarine mass movements (with resulting tsunamis) on the
glaciated North Atlantic margins.

All posts will be located at one of the partners institutions: the
University of Bergen, the University of Tromso, the University Centre in
Svalbard, North Energy Exploration, Durham University, the Scottish
Association for Marine Science, the University of Ulster, and the
Denmark and Greenland Geological Survey. Recruitment is open for up to
15 posts with closing dates through March and April 2013.

Details of individual posts can be found at the partner institutions; a
full list of links and posts is available at: http://org.uib.no/glanam/.
