Environmental Soil Chemistry
The Department of Natural Resource Sciences of McGill University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Environmental Soil Chemistry. The successful candidate will conduct research with a focus on the chemistry of degraded soils, particularly as it applies to urban and peri-urban agricultural and contaminated sites. Research areas of particular interest include the remediation and restoration of soil quality of degraded and contaminated sites, and the behavior, bioavailability and transport of trace metals and organic contaminants.
The successful applicant will hold a PhD degree in an appropriate discipline and will have post-doctoral experience and a record of publication in high-quality scholarly journals. The position will require the development of a strong externally-funded research program involving the mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students. It will involve teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as service to the university and scholarly communities. Collaboration in research and teaching is encouraged with others in the Department and across the Faculty and University, particularly with the research groups in soil and water in the Department of Bioresource Engineering.
