The Centre for Earth Observation Science (CEOS) at the University of Manitoba invites applications for a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Canada Research Chair Tier 2 in the broad natural science fields of Arctic marine system science. This full-time, tenure track position, at the rank of assistant professor, will be located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

The successful candidate is expected to be a part of the various Arctic system science projects led by CEOS, including projects focused on freshwater-marine coupling with freshwater sources from glaciers and continental runoff; ocean acidification and carbon exchange processes; physical, biological, and chemical oceanography; Arctic-midlatitude teleconnections; and climate change. The candidate will also be expected to teach one undergraduate and one graduate course in their area of research.

Applicants must have a PhD and proven success in leading an independently organized and externally funded program in Arctic marine science. Experience in teaching and mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, and research associates is required. Demonstrated teaching ability at the undergraduate and graduate levels will be an asset.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.

Application materials must include:

  • A cover letter outlining the candidate's qualifications and how they fulfill the position criteria;
  • A curriculum vitae, including examples of significant research contributions;
  • A two-page statement outlining the innovative and original proposed five-year research program envisioned for the Tier 2 chair and its potential to attract funding, contribute to student training and other impacts on the broader community, and a statement on the candidate's strengths and experiences in increasing equity, diversity, and inclusion in previous institutional environments;
  • A teaching statement that documents the candidate's experience in and approach to training and mentoring diverse students, and the candidate's teaching philosophy; and
  • Names and contact information of three referees.
