The University of Manitoba invites applications for a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Canada Research Chair (CRC; Tier 2), a tenured or tenure track position at the rank of assistant or associate professor, in the broad natural science fields of Arctic ice and marine system science.

The position will have a significant proportion allocated to research in any one of the broad areas of Arctic Marine and Climate Science in the specific subdiscipline of the candidate’s specialization.  The candidate will also be expected to teach one undergraduate and one graduate course in their area of research.  Service will also be required both within the University and through various professional and public organizations linked to the candidate’s area of expertise.

The successful candidates will be expected to play a major role in the various Arctic System Science projects led by the Centre for Earth Observation Science (http://umanitoba.ca/ceos/) at the University of Manitoba.  With more than 150 researchers, students and staff, including a Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) Laureate, a new Canada Excellence Research Chair, a Senior Canada-150 Chair and two existing Canada Research Chairs (CRC, both at Tier 1), CEOS is one of the largest and most influential Arctic marine research groups in the world. CEOS’ research is supported by a purpose-built Nellie Cournoyea Arctic Research Facility; laboratories for Earth, environmental and material sciences, and applied electromagnetics; Sea-ice Environmental Research Facility; The Churchill Marine Observatory (CMO);

CCGS Amundsen icebreaker and a new coastal research vessel the R/V William Kennedy and numerous field stations across the Arctic. The Arctic Science Partnership (https://asp-net.org) provides added opportunity for international networking.

A Tier 2 CRC Nomination will be submitted soon after a successful candidate has been selected. Chairs are awarded by the Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat after a rigorous evaluation, and award decisions are expected within six months of the CRC T2 submission. The appointment will be conditional on a successful Canada Research Chair nomination.

Applicants must be exceptional emerging scholars with less than 10 years of experience as an active researcher since obtaining their terminal degree at the time of nomination. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) will have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program's Tier 2 justification process. Please contact the UM’s Office of Research Services (researchgrants@umanitoba.ca) office for more information (www.umanitoba.ca/research/ors/).
