Canada Research Chair Tier 2 in Urban Planning for Climate Change

The University of Victoria is consistently ranked in the top tier of Canada’s research-intensive universities. Vital impact drives the UVic sense of purpose. As an internationally renowned teaching and research hub, we tackle essential issues that matter to people, places and the planet. Situated in the Pacific Rim, our location breeds a profound passion for exploration. Defined by its edges, this extraordinary environment inspires us to defy boundaries, discover, and innovate in exciting ways. It’s different here, naturally and by design. We live, learn, work and explore on the edge of what’s next. Our commitment to research-inspired dynamic learning and vital impact make this Canada’s most extraordinary environment for discovery and innovation. Experience the edge of possibilities for yourself.

The University of Victoria is located on the traditional lands of the Coast Salish Peoples, and we are privileged to do our work in a way that is inspired by their history, customs and culture. Our connections to indigenous communities – as well as global communities – are important to us.

The Departments of Geography and Civil Engineering invite applications for a Canada Research Chair (CRC) Tier 2 in Urban Planning for Climate Change. This CRC builds upon UVic’s strengths in urban geography, urban metabolism, climate, building design and sustainability studies, found in these departments and across the University, including in the Centre for Global Studies, Public Administration, The Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, Environment Canada’s Water & Climate Impacts Research Center, the Institute of Integrated Energy Systems, the Matrix Institute for Data Sciences, and other units. The successful applicant will be nominated by the University for a Tier 2 CRC and, upon approval by the CRC Secretariat, will then be offered a position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor (eligible for tenure). The anticipated start date is July 2021.
