Tenure Track in Atmospheric Science-Remote Sensing: Univ Saskatchewan - due 30 Aug

Applications are invited for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics. The candidate will be expected to implement an independent research program within the Institute of Space and Atmospheric Studies (ISAS, http://www.usask.ca/physics/isas). The candidate's research will address outstanding questions involving global distributions of chemical constituents in the atmosphere, and the relationships between atmospheric dynamics and chemical transport - research that has strong relevance to the Environment and to the Climate Change debate. The successful candidate will enhance the activities of the atmospheric science group in the areas such as, optical instrumentation, radiative transfer models, or retrieval techniques.

Research within ISAS is international, collaborative and strongly linked to the Canadian Space Agency e.g. Odin-OSIRIS, ACE, CANDAC-PEARL, CAWSES and SPARC. ISAS is a part of the Environmental Sciences major strategic initiative at the University.

The Department of Physics and Engineering Physics (http://physics.usask.ca) is a research-intensive department with a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching. The successful candidate is expected to be able to contribute significantly to teaching both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in physics or a related discipline and to have demonstrated proven excellence or outstanding potential in research. Ideal candidates would have the ability to attract funding from major national funding agencies. Candidates able to obtain the status of "Professional Engineer" are preferred. Special considerations may also be given to candidates qualifying for NSERC University Faculty Awards (http://www.nserc.ca).

Applications should include statements of teaching interests, experience and philosophy (at least 1 page); a research proposal (up to 3 pages); a curriculum vitae; examples of recent publications; and the names of at least three referees.

Applications should be sent, by August 30, 2007, to:
Dr. Rob Pywell, Head
