Tier 1 or Tier 2 according to professorial rank and eligibility

The Departments of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (www.mcgill.ca/meteo/) and Earth and Planetary Sciences (www.mcgill.ca/eps) at McGill University invite applications for a full-time tenured or tenure-track joint faculty position in Dynamics of the Earth-Ocean-Climate System.


If the successful candidate satisfies the specific eligibility conditions of the program, the candidate may be supported by the University for nomination to a Tier 1 or a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Dynamics of the Earth-Ocean-Climate System, which provides protected time for research within a full-time academic appointment.


A Tier 1 CRC is a senior chair to be held by a full Professor or an Associate Professor who will earn a senior promotion within two years of acceptance of the award.


Tier 2 Chairs are for emerging researchers (individuals who are no more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree). However, career interruptions (e.g. maternity or parental leave, extended sick leave, clinical training, family care, etc.) may be taken into consideration using the Tier 2 justification process to review the candidate’s eligibility. Potential applicants who are more than 10 years from their highest degree with career interruptions may contact the institution to have their eligibility reviewed through the Tier 2 justification process. The eligibility conditions for the CRC chairs are found at http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx#s3.


The Canada Research Chair is also open to internal candidates who already hold a tenure-track or tenured faculty position at McGill University.

The Canada Research Chair is also open to internal candidates who already hold a tenure-track or tenured faculty position at McGill University.


McGill University is one of Canada’s leading research and teaching institutions, located in the heart of cosmopolitan Montreal. The position, with a start date of August 1, 2018 or later, is at the rank of Associate Professor. An appointment at the Full Professor level will be considered for applicants with exceptional qualifications.


We seek an outstanding earth system scientist who applies numerical, observational and interdisciplinary approaches (including, for example, big data compilation, remote sensing, incorporating societal interactions with climate change) to investigate the dynamics of the earth, ocean, and climate systems. The successful candidate will be part of McGill’s Earth System Science program (http://www.ess.mcgill.ca/) and participate in the McGill Sustainability Systems Initiative (http://www.mcgill.ca/mssi/home).


Applicants must have a doctorate at the time of appointment, and an exceptional record of research and teaching. The position is a re-posting of an Atmospheric Remote Sensing position in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. Previous applicants to this position need not re-apply as their dossier will be included in this search.


Applications must include a detailed curriculum vitae, a research plan, a statement of teaching interests, a list of three reference letter writers, and up to three examples of recent publications. The application package should be sent in electronic form to Kristy Thornton. Internal applicants to the Canada Research Chair need to submit a recent curriculum vitae and a statement of research interests aligned with the designated subject area for the chair.


Review of applications will begin April 27, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.
