TENURE-TRACK ASSISTANT PROFESSOR IN TECTONICS

The School of Earth and Ocean Sciences (SEOS) at the University of Victoria invites applications for a Tenure Track Assistant Professor position in tectonics, to commence as early as July 2018. We seek applicants whose research encompasses field-based investigations in the general field of tectonics, and who use the geological record in any of the following disciplines: structural geology, sedimentology, geochemistry, geochronology, or tectonic geomorphology. Research areas can include, but are not limited to, feedbacks between tectonics and climate, paleogeography, thermochronology, paleoaltimetry, neotectonics, or tectonic evolution across Earth history. We particularly seek candidates who work in or will develop a research focus that examines the processes and evolution of the Earth System. SEOS emphasizes an Earth Systems Science approach, and the ideal candidate will be able to interact broadly with faculty who specialize in solid-earth, earth-surface, ocean, and atmosphere processes.

The successful candidate will develop a vigorous, independent, externally-funded research program that complements existing strengths in the School. It is also expected that the candidate will supervise undergraduate and graduate students and teach undergraduate and graduate courses, in particular, geological field schools, global tectonics, structural geology and other core geology courses, and actively contribute to departmental initiatives.  

A PhD is required at the time of appointment and post-doctoral experience is desirable. Commensurate with their career stage, qualified candidates must have an excellent record of research published in or in preparation for leading scientific journals. Effective teaching and student supervision are expected, supported by evidence which may include past experience, references, a teaching statement (see below), and the presentation of a candidacy seminar. 

Applications, in a single pdf file, should include a letter of application, a detailed curriculum vitae, contact information (name, address, email) for three references, a two-page statement describing the applicant’s teaching experience and philosophy, and a two-page statement describing their current and future research interests/direction. Applications or requests for further information should be sent electronically to Dr. Stan Dosso, Director, School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at seos@uvic.ca. Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2017, and will continue until a suitable candidate is identified. Information about SEOS can be found at www.uvic.ca/science/seos/.

Faculty at the University of Victoria are governed by the provisions of the Collective Agreement (www.uvic.ca/vpacademic/assets/docs/Collective%20Agreement.pdf). Members are represented by the University of Victoria Faculty Association (www.uvicfa.ca).  The University of Victoria is an equity employer and encourages applications from women, persons with disabilities, visible minorities, Aboriginal Peoples, people of all sexual orientations and genders, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of the University. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, in accordance with Canadian Immigration requirements, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
