Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Sea Ice Modeling - University of Manitoba;jsessionid=4126FC4BD9B85B81477690525A8D8410?careerId=814

Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Sea Ice Modeling
University of Manitoba

Centre for Earth Observation Science, Dept. of Environment and Geography
Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources
Position #: 25130
Application deadline: May 15, 2018


The University of Manitoba invites applications for a Canada Research Chair (CRC) Tier 2, tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor, in the area of sea ice modeling.

The Government of Canada has established the CRC program to enable Canadian universities to foster world-class research excellence. The proposed CRCs align with the University's strategic research plan that identifies Arctic System Science as a targeted area.

The successful candidate will become a member of the Centre for Earth Observation Science (CEOS; With more than 135 researchers, students and staff, including one Canada Excellence Research Chair and two existing CRCs (both Tier 1), CEOS is one of the most influential Arctic marine research groups in the world. CEOS’ research is supported by a purpose-built Nellie Cournoyea Arctic Research Facility; laboratories for environmental and material sciences and applied electromagnetics; the Sea-ice Environmental Research Facility (SERF); the Churchill Marine Observatory (CMO); a new costal research vessel RV William Kennedy; the CCGS Amundsen icebreaker; and numerous field stations across the Arctic. The Arctic Science Partnership ( between CEOS, the Arctic Research Centre at Aarhus University (Denmark), and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources provides added opportunity for networking. The Riddell Faculty is the institution’s hub for environmental and Earth System Science research and teaching, focusing on identifying and understanding processes, managing resources and assessing implications for ecosystems and human societies.


The successful candidate will be expected to develop a rigorous, independently funded research program, and play a major role in various large-scale collaborative Arctic marine programs at the University of Manitoba.

The Chair will have a reduced teaching and administrative load, but is expected to contribute to undergraduate and or graduate teaching in the area of Arctic System Science. 


The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. and proven success in a highly productive track record of academic output, and a record of mentorship of undergraduate, graduate and/or postdoctoral level trainees. Outstanding applicants with internationally recognized expertise in the broad fields of regional or global ocean-sea ice-atmosphere (OSA) modeling may apply. The candidate may have experience/expertise with model development but in particular should have experience with the application of sea ice models in climate studies of OSA related processes. Model experience can be with coupled ocean-sea ice models forced with a prescribed atmosphere or it can be a fully OSA coupled model. Candidates with expertise in coupled hydrological-marine modeling and glacier-marine modeling are also encouraged to apply.

The selected candidate must compete successfully for the Tier 2 Chair award that supports the position. 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. Tier 2 Chairs are valued at $100,000 per year for 5 years with an option to renew once.  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) will have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. Chairs are awarded by the Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat. The appointment will be conditional on a successful Canada Research Chair nomination.
