TENURE TRACK POSITION IN FOREST ECOSYSTEM ECOLOGY
Under the Institutional Policy for the Recruitment of New Professorial Resources, UQAM is looking for the most qualified human resources to assure quality development in all areas and the renewal of its professorial staff.
Applications are invited for a tenure track faculty position in the Department of Biological Sciences, UQAM (http://www.bio.uqam.ca), in the area of forest ecosystem productivity. Candidates must have research expertise in tree or stand productivity, soil-tree interactions, the genetic improvement and molecular biology of tree growth, ecophysiology, or modelling at the tree, stand, or landscape scale. The successful candidate must be able to develop an independent research program in the area while bringing expertise to the department, and must apply for a Canada Research Chair (level 2: http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/) in April 2012.
SUMMARY OF DUTIES :
Teaching and supervising all three university levels
Involvement in the university community
JOB QUALIFICATIONS :
We are looking for a motivated person with postdoctoral experience and a Ph.D. The successful candidate must have an excellent publication record in the above areas; their research must demonstrate a tangible link to forest ecosystem productivity. The successful candidate will join one of the most important forest ecology research groups in Canada (CFR - UQAM: http://www.cef-cfr.ca/) in a very dynamic department, which includes a diversity of research groups in forest ecology, aquatics, evolution, and behaviour. He or she will be encouraged to interact actively with the members of the CFR, but also with the other ecology groups at UQAM.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach undergraduate courses using the innovative problem-based learning approach of the departement. He or she will teach in some of the following areas: general ecology, forest ecology, ecosystem ecology, modelling, and statistics. All courses are taught in French. Non-francophone professors will be offered a training period, but must master written and spoken French to qualify for tenure. The successful candidate will also be expected to participate in the university community and to train graduate students.
STARTING DATE : 1st of JUNE 2012
