Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Development Geography
The Department of Geography (http://www.mcgill.ca/geography/) and the Institute for the Study of International Development (https://www.mcgill.ca/isid/) at McGill University invite applications for a joint tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in Development Geography.
We seek a promising scholar for research and teaching in Development Geography with a focus on the combination of climate adaptation, disaster response, vulnerability in the face of climate change and/or the drivers and consequences of international/national migration on urbanization and development in the Global South.
Our preferred candidate will have a strong track-record working in interdisciplinary contexts. The Institute for the Study of International Development (ISID) is an interdisciplinary unit that places high value on policy-relevant research and teaching. The Department of Geography has research strengths in the natural and social processes of global environmental change, development, urban and health geographies and has a long-standing tradition of collaborative work with other units at McGill, including the Institute for the Study of International Development, the McGill School of Environment and the Sustainability and Science and Society Interfaculty Program.
Applicants must possess a PhD in Geography or a equivalent discipline. The successful applicant will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses both at ISID and in the Department of Geography. Applicants must be in the process of developing a vigorous research program, embracing graduate student supervision.
McGill University is committed to equity in employment and diversity. It welcomes applications from indigenous peoples, visible minorities, ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, women, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities and others who may contribute to further diversification. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply; however, in accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada. As English is the language of instruction at McGill, knowledge of French is an asset but not a requirement.
