The Department seeks a candidate with a strong background and research experience that falls broadly in the field of climatology. Specific research interests could include, but not be limited to, physical climatology, micrometeorology, biometeorology, climate change, climate modelling, and/or regional downscaling. Research interests that complement existing strengths in biogeosciences and ecohydrology would be considered an asset. The candidate is expected to develop a research programme that integrates field and modelling-based approaches. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in Geography or a very closely related field, and evidence of excellence in scholarly research, publication, and teaching.

The appointment will be at UTM, which has a strong interdisciplinary commitment to teaching and research, a multicultural student body of 11,000 students, and a modern, spacious campus, where the appointee will be expected to develop an externally funded research program. ­The successful candidate will also hold a graduate faculty appointment in the tri-campus Department of Geography and Program in Planning at the University of Toronto, a department with strengths and interdisciplinary linkages in physical and human geography and the environment. Active participation in the UTM Geography and Environment undergraduate programs, as well as in the graduate program of the Department of Geography and Program in Planning is expected.

All qualified candidates are invited to apply through the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) careers website http://www.hrandequity.utoronto.ca/careers.htm.
