Tenure-Track Position in Natural Resources Peterborough Campus

Post by Admin » Wed Jan 19, 2022 3:47 pm

Trent University invites applications from qualified candidates for a full-time tenure track position in The School of the Environment (TSE) in Natural Resources. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and will commence July 1st, 2022 or shortly thereafter. This position is subject to final budgetary approval.

Applicants should have earned a PhD degree in environmental science, natural resource management, ecological restoration, or related discipline. We are flexible regarding area of specialization; however, fields of particular interest include wetland restoration, forestry and mining reclamation and can either focus on terrestrial or aquatic ecosystems. We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and extend the School of Environment’s existing strengths. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue an innovative, externally funded research program; contribute to matters of departmental and institutional governance; and support Trent’s commitment to excellence in undergraduate education. We also seek candidates whose research, teaching and service demonstrate a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.

The TSE offers 14 undergraduate degrees serving more than 700 majors in fields as diverse as Environmental Science, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems, Water Science, Environmental Geoscience, Indigenous Environmental Studies and Climate Change Science and Policy. The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses that cross these disciplines but will be expected to play a pivotal role in the Ecological Restoration Degree that is a joint Degree with Fleming College. The successful candidate is expected to conduct research that is recognized at regional, national and international levels, but will also be willing to work extensively with local community partners. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

To apply, please send (1) a letter of application (no more than 2 pages); (2) a curriculum vitae, and; (3) names and contact information for 3 references to tse@trentu.ca (Attn. Shaun Watmough). Additional documentation, such as a research statement or teaching dossier may be requested of those short-listed for the position. Please note that applications will only be accepted in PDF format via email. Review of applications will begin on February 24, 2022 and will continue until a candidate is selected.

For inquiries about this position, please contact Dr. Shaun Watmough, Director of the School of the Environment.

Trent University is actively committed to creating a diverse and inclusive campus community and encourages applications from all qualified candidates. Trent University offers accommodation for applicants with disabilities in its recruitment processes. If you require accommodation during the recruitment process, or require an accessible version of a document/publication, please contact swatmough@trentu.ca.
