Postby sbonner » Tue Apr 04, 2017 9:29 am

The Faculty of Science at Western University is pleased to announce a search for a Tier I Canada Research Chair in Complex Environmental Systems Modeling and Analysis to be appointed to a tenured position at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor. The rank will be commensurate with the successful applicant’s qualifications and experience. The candidate must have a Ph.D.in Biology, Statistics, or a related field and a demonstrated record of independent research accomplishments. The successful candidate will be an expert in the development and/or use of models and analytical tools to study and quantify ecological patterns and processes. The successful candidate will be jointly appointed to the Departments of Biology (http://www.uwo.ca/biology) and Statistical & Actuarial Sciences (http://www.stats.uwo.ca). The anticipated start date will be July 1, 2018 or as negotiated.

In order to participate in Western’s exciting new initiatives in the area of Big Data, the successful candidate will have extensive experience in the development and/or application of statistical or computational methodologies that utilize large scale quantitative data sets to address questions involving complex systems, including ecological applications. Statisticians who work collaboratively with ecologists to analyze data with parametric and non-parametric space-time models and ecologists who use mathematical modeling to study spatial dynamics and/or long-term field sites are encouraged to apply.

Ecologists at Western address a wide range of globally-relevant questions related to climate change impacts at multiple scales, from the individual to ecosystem level. Key areas include animal movement and ecosystem function. Western’s researchers have also built state-of-the-art experimental facilities to advance research in these areas, including the Advanced Facility for Avian Research (http://www.birds.uwo.ca), the Biotron (http://www.thebiotron.ca), The Environmental Sciences Western Field Station (http://www.uwo.ca/esw) and the Laboratory for Stable Isotope Sciences (http://www.uwo.ca/earth/LSIS).
