Full and part-time employment
Senior Professorship in Water Governance and Policy:
Water Institute – University of Waterloo
Applications are invited for a senior professor position as part of a strategic hiring initiative to strengthen interdisciplinary water research and education at the University of Waterloo. The successful candidate will join the more than 150 faculty members of the Water Institute from across the University’s six faculties. The Water Institute is committed to addressing society’s complex water issues through research, innovation and knowledge mobilization. The new faculty position is in the broadly-defined area of water governance and policy, with a particular focus on the institutions, processes and mechanisms through which societies, governments and stakeholders make and implement decisions that affect water. Applications from candidates with strong interdisciplinary training across relevant social science fields such as public policy, public administration, economics, planning and human geography are especially welcome. Our research aims to contribute to solutions to major global water challenges, in Canada and elsewhere. This position seeks to address the societal value of water and the integrated analysis of the socio-economic, institutional and cultural determinants of water usage and water resources management, in support of innovative water governance and policy systems.
The position is expected to be at the Full Professor level. However, applications will be accepted from candidates who have not yet achieved the rank of Full Professor (or equivalent), but are in a position to apply for that rank soon after taking up an appointment at the University of Waterloo.
Please see the Water Institute position posting for further details.
