The College of Arts and Science invites applications from qualified individuals for a tenure-track appointment and Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Analytical Environmental Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry (artsandscience.usask.ca/chemistry).
Applications from women and members of other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged. Recruitment will be guided by the Government of Canada Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan for Canada Research Chairs (www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/equity-equite/index-eng.aspx) and by the strong commitment of the University of Saskatchewan, College of Arts and Science, and Department of Chemistry to employment equity and diversity.
The Canada Research Chairs (CRC) Program is the flagship of a national strategy to make Canada one of the world's top countries in research and development (www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca). The successful candidate will build an internationally-recognized program in analytical chemistry as applied to environmental science, broadly defined. Appropriate areas of focus include, but are not limited to, the chemistry of aqueous interfaces in the environment, analysis of contaminants in complex environmental media, application of synchrotron techniques in environmental science, and the development of new analytical methods. The Chair will attract and maintain extramural funding, participate in graduate supervision, and contribute to design and delivery of the department's undergraduate and graduate analytical chemistry curriculum.
Tier 2 chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars, who have been active researchers in their fields for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned a PhD in chemistry or equivalent qualification, for whom legitimate career interruptions exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, may have their eligibility for a Tier 2 chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. The successful candidate will have an exceptional track record of research and a demonstrated potential for attracting competitively awarded research funding. Experience in interdisciplinary research partnerships and a commitment to education is ideal.
Salary bands for this position are as follows: Assistant Professor: $93,293 to $112,109; Associate Professor: $112,109 to $130,925; and Professor $130,925 to $152,877. This position includes a comprehensive benefits package which includes a dental, health and extended vision care plan; pension plan, life insurance (compulsory and voluntary), academic long term disability, sick leave, travel insurance, death benefits, an employee assistance program, a professional expense allowance, and a flexible health and wellness spending program.
To be considered for this position, please submit a cover letter outlining your qualifications and your vision for the position; curriculum vitae; a description of your proposed research program, a description of your teaching interests and philosophy, and the contact information for three referees to:
