– Tier 2 CRC in Physical Oceanography –
The Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie University is seeking applicants for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Physical Oceanography. Applicants must hold a PhD in Physical Oceanography or a closely related discipline, and have a strong record of research excellence. The applicants’ research should address ocean dynamics on a range of temporal and spatial scales, and it should complement the existing research activities by physical oceanography faculty in the Department, e.g., ocean models and observational analyses, shelf and deep ocean circulation, nearshore processes, air-sea interactions, climate variability, ocean acoustics, and mixing. Interests in cross-disciplinary oceanographic research are an asset.
The successful applicant will be appointed to a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The anticipated start date is 1 July 2019, or as negotiated. The application should include a detailed curriculum vitae, a two- to three-page statement of research interests, three representative publications, the names and contact information of three references, and a completed Self-ID questionnaire (www.dal.ca/becounted/selfid). Review of applications will begin on 4 June 2018 and will continue until the position is filled. Please send the complete application as a single pdf to:
