Assistant Professor, Wildlife Ecology, College of Science & Management, University of Northern British Columbia

Posting # FAESM19-18
Full time, Continuing

The Ecosystem Science and Management Program at the University of Northern British Columbia invites applications for a tenure-track position in Wildlife Ecology. The anticipated start date for the position is July 1, 2019.

We seek candidates who will develop a vigorous, externally funded long-term research program in mammalian ecology that will enhance the knowledge base of wildlife ecology and management, and contribute to better management of wildlife habitats and populations in the face of threats such as industrial development and climate change. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to collaborate with existing UNBC faculty with expertise in wildlife conservation, avian ecology and behaviour, invertebrate biology, fish ecology and fisheries management, plant ecology and biology, forest ecology and natural resource management; and is expected to work with other scientists and managers within industry, government, and conservation groups.

Applicants for this position should hold a PhD, have a strong record of scholarly activity and productivity, and be prepared to teach several courses a year in the area of wildlife ecology and management. Candidates will also present a record of teaching excellence at both undergraduate and graduate levels. UNBC offers a BSc in Wildlife and Fisheries that is one of very few degrees of its kind in Canada. Students graduating from this degree have sound biological backgrounds for pursuing post-graduate studies as well as a degree that can lead directly into wildlife or fisheries professions. In addition, UNBC offers relevant graduate degrees at the Masters and PhD levels. Collectively these degrees are supported by a core group of high-caliber faculty who are actively engaged in wildlife and fisheries research and in related fields. UNBC also has a highly successful Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society (TWS), which forms an important link to learning outside the classroom. Interest and commitment to supporting the Student Chapter of TWS as a faculty liaison, and participation and leadership in the Wildlife and Fisheries Curriculum Committee are critical elements of this position.

UNBC provides broad support for faculty to develop their research and teaching capabilities, a modern and comprehensive campus, and a distinctive quality of life in central British Columbia. UNBC is equipped with significant research facilities and infrastructure including two research forests, and The Quesnel River Research Centre, located next to one of the world’s deepest lakes. UNBC is situated among diverse landscapes and ecosystems, and enjoys strong community connections. Diverse ecosystems and a resource-based economy provide many research opportunities.

Poste conjoint en ÉCOLOGIE VÉGÉTALE au Département de biologie et à l’École de l’environnement de l’Université McGill

Description du poste

Le Département de biologie et l’École de l’environnement de l’Université McGill sollicitent des candidatures pour un poste de professeur menant à la permanence en écologie végétale. Le poste est rattaché à ces deux unités, et le niveau du poste à pourvoir est celui de professeur adjoint. Nous accueillons les demandes de candidats qualifiés travaillant dans une discipline connexe, mais nous nous intéressons particulièrement aux personnes dont les recherches établissent des liens évidents entre les processus biologiques fondamentaux des végétaux et les préoccupations environnementales, notamment les changements climatiques, la dynamique de la biodiversité, le fonctionnement des écosystèmes, les services écosystémiques et les prévisions écologiques. Une expertise en écophysiologie végétale et la capacité d’approfondir la compréhension des processus physiologiques qui entrent en jeu dans les interactions entre les végétaux, les écosystèmes et les paysages constituent des atouts. Nous pourrions prendre en considération le dossier de candidats d’exception spécialisés dans d’autres domaines pertinents aux deux unités. Le candidat idéal doit avoir fait preuve d’une excellente aptitude à travailler dans un contexte largement interdisciplinaire et doit posséder de l’expérience en enseignement fondé sur la collaboration, ou être prêt à adopter cette méthode d’enseignement. La personne sélectionnée recevra des fonds de démarrage concurrentiels et un laboratoire, et elle aura accès à des installations de recherche partagées.
