Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Agriculture: Environmental Chemistry

The Department of Plant, Food, and Environmental Sciences in Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Agriculture invites applications for a tenure stream Assistant Professor position with Teaching, Research, and Service responsibilities. The successful candidate will commence as early as July 1, 2021.

We are seeking outstanding candidates with a demonstrated track record of expertise, experience and knowledge in environmental chemistry, especially in an agricultural context. Exposure to agrochemicals including organic materials, fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and others greatly contribute to environmental pollution, land degradation and contamination of underground water resources to affect the environment, biodiversity, and ecosystems. Agricultural chemicals also lead to residual issues and raise food safety concerns. To develop sustainable agricultural systems, it is critical to generate new knowledge in agricultural residue chemistry and life-cycle analysis. This will enable the development of policies and regulations to mitigate the impact of land-based agriculture on our environment, land and landscapes and contribute to ecological services, food safety, food security and building sustainable communities.

The successful candidate will work closely with our faculty members in plant science, environmental sciences, soil science, cropping systems, food biosciences, animal and aquaculture production systems, engineering, and environmental health. As such, the successful candidate will be evaluated on their potential to become an international leader in the field of agricultural residue chemistry and their ability to provide potential sustainable solutions for environmental stewardship. The faculty expects the successful candidate to develop a strong externally funded, internationally recognized research program that includes the training of post-graduate, graduate, and undergraduate students. The successful candidate will be a multidisciplinary researcher who has demonstrated potential to collaborate with faculty members from across departments in the Faculty of Agriculture. We seek a team-player and team-builder who can forge synergies within and among academia, government research institutions, industry, and other stakeholders within and beyond the Atlantic region. We seek a clear and stimulating communicator who can inspire students, support faculty initiatives, serve on faculty committees, and participate in growing the positive reputation of the faculty and university.

The successful applicant must:

  • hold a PhD in environmental chemistry or a closely related discipline such as agricultural chemistry, ecotoxicology or other closely related discipline with a demonstrated link between agriculture chemical residue and environmental health, ecological services and food safety;
  • demonstrate the ability or potential to acquire research funding through grant-writing and to
  • publish in peer-reviewed scientific journals;
  • demonstrate experience in, or potential to, teach effectively at an undergraduate level, graduate, or post-graduate level; and
  • demonstrate the potential to become an international leader in their field, and potential to developa strong externally funded program including Tri-council funding (https://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/)

Desirable assets include demonstration of professional development related to teaching, and experience teaching international students.

A complete application package for this position should include:

  • a cover letter summarizing qualifications and experience related to this position (2 pages maximum);
  • a detailed CV;
  • a prospective research plan which includes your approach to EDI* (3 page maximum);
  • a statement on teaching interests, experience, and philosophy which includes your approach to EDI* (2 page maximum);
  • reprints of three recent and relevant publications; and
  • names, affiliations, and emails of three references. (note: Applicants selected for further consideration will be notified before referees are contacted)

*EDI – A statement (2 paragraphs maximum) relating to how you will integrate and promote equity, diversity, and inclusivity in research and teaching.

The Faculty of Agriculture (https://www.dal.ca/faculty/agriculture.html) is on the Dalhousie University Agricultural Campus, located in Truro, Nova Scotia. The Faculty offers technical, undergraduate, and graduate (M.Sc. & Ph.D.) programs in agriculture, aquaculture, environment, and related life and social science disciplines, and is home to approximately 1,000 students and 50+ professors, including current and past Canada Research Chairs. Dalhousie University is the leading graduate and research university of Atlantic Canada, with more than 18,500 students, including 3,500 in graduate programs, from 115 countries.
