Oferta de trabajo en conservación y restauración en Canadá

Oferta compartida por Nuria

The University of British Columbia seeks applicants for a tenure-track position in conservation and restoration, part of major cluster hire initiative (https://biodiversity.ubc.ca/cluster-hire).

We seek a Conservation and Restoration Scientist to be jointly appointed in the Departments of Botany, and Forest & Conservation Sciences, with opportunities for strong interaction with UBC's Beaty Biodiversity Museum and Biodiversity Research Centre. Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. degree by June, 2021, show evidence of potential to develop a strong research program, and contribute to teaching and mentoring at graduate and undergraduate levels. In evaluating candidates, we may also consider evidence of leadership within the candidate's community, contributions to fostering diversity, equity and inclusion, and the social or policy impacts of the candidate's work.

The Conservation and Restoration Scientist will conduct research broadly investigating how to conserve and protect biodiversity, and restore functioning ecosystems in a changing world. Applicants should have an interest in integrating fundamental research on restoring biodiversity, ecosystem functions or adaptive capacity, with applied research on conservation and restoration strategies that involve engagement with communities, industry or governments. Their expertise will be in ecology (including applied ecology), conservation, evolutionary biology, forestry, geography, or related disciplines. We encourage applicants who use a range of empirical or theoretical approaches, applying them to real-world problems from local to global scales, in terrestrial or aquatic ecosystems, and working in plant, animal or fungal systems.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop an independent research program and contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching and training, and academic service in their departments. They will also work collaboratively with other members of the Biodiversity Solutions (https://biodiversity.ubc.ca/cluster-hire) team to develop approaches to solving social-ecological challenges related to biodiversity conservation. Applicants should demonstrate a strong interest or experience in conducting collaborative, interdisciplinary work, through existing or proposed research, teaching, leadership, service, community engagement, outreach or other relevant activities.

We recognize that candidates may have had diverse trajectories that could include interruptions and leaves, for example related to care-giver responsibilities, and we value this diversity.

Equity, inclusion and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We particularly encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Métis, Inuit, or Indigenous person.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Review of applications will begin 30th November 2020 and continue until the position is filled. The anticipated starting date for positions is July 1, 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter, dependent on immigration and travel restrictions.
