Dalhousie University

Assistant Professor (probationary tenure-track appointment) (Specialization in Resource and Environmental Management, Policy, and Governance)

The School for Resource and Environmental Studies (SRES) and the College of Sustainability (CoS) together invite applications for a joint probationary tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor commencing 01 July 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.

SRES provides a dynamic setting for creative, interdisciplinary scholarship that addresses societal challenges related to natural resources, the environment, and human development. We have a passion for making the world a much better place through the creation, application, and mobilization of knowledge that furthers social and ecological sustainability. SRES delivers two programs: a thesis-based Master of Environmental Studies (MES) and a course-based Master of Resource and Environmental Management (MREM). SRES faculty also teach in the undergraduate Bachelor of Management. Faculty also supervise PhD students through Dalhousie’s Interdisciplinary PhD program, and the School is developing its own new PhD program.

The College of Sustainability is internationally recognized for its innovative approach to interdisciplinary undergraduate education. The College offers an undergraduate Environment, Sustainability and Society program which students complete as a double major paired with one of seven Bachelors’ degree programs across five Dalhousie Faculties. The ESS program is offered in conjunction with over forty other subject areas.

We are seeking a colleague with interdisciplinary competences related to sustainability in the context of natural resources and the environment. The colleague will specialize in resource and environmental management, policy, and governance. Interest and ability in spatial analytics would be an asset. Applicants should have competence in the evaluation of human impacts on natural resources and the environment.

Applicants must have a PhD, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and enthusiasm to teach in diverse settings (large and small undergraduate classes as well as graduate classes) related to the candidate’s areas of expertise. Interest and ability in community-engaged teaching and scholarship is an asset. Evidence or the promise of the ability to win research grants or contracts is important. The ability and willingness to work with colleagues constructively is essential. The successful candidates will also participate in the administrative management of the School and the College.

The School for Resource and Environmental Studies is part of the Faculty of Management, which has a unique commitment to interdisciplinary advancement of management knowledge and practice leading to transformational solutions for society. The successful candidate will thus have opportunities to work with like-minded colleagues in the Rowe School of Business, School of Public Administration, and School of Information Management. Information about SRES can be found at https://www.dal.ca/sres. In the College of Sustainability, over 40 Dalhousie professors are presently cross-appointed. This provides an interdisciplinary forum for collaborative learning and teaching on the most pressing issues of our time. For more information see http://sustainability.dal.ca

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Dalhousie University is committed to fostering a collegial culture grounded in diversity and inclusiveness. The university encourages applications from Aboriginal people, persons with a disability, racially visible persons, women, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and all candidates who would contribute to the diversity of our community.

Applicants should send a cover letter, a current CV, a statement of research interests, a statement of teaching competencies together with evidence of teaching effectiveness (if available), and contact details for three academic referees, electronically or on paper. If emailing, please note posting number 3174 in the subject line.

A complete application also includes a completed Self-Identification Questionnaire, which is available at www.dal.ca/becounted/selfid.  Deadline for applications is midnight, April 1, 2018 and are to be sent to:
