Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Integrated Watershed Management at Brandon University

Brandon University invites applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Integrated
Watershed Management. The University seeks an individual with a PhD or appropriate
terminal degree obtained within the last ten years, an outstanding research program, and
an established record of attracting competitively awarded research funding, including
Canadian Tri-Agency or similar national or international funding.

The successful candidate will conduct research and teach in the area of integrated
watershed management and build capacity to inform watershed governance and policy
development as they relate to shared water resources. The Chair will serve as a node to
develop an interdisciplinary research network that will train highly qualified personnel and
include collaborations with existing departments, programs, and institutes at Brandon
University, within the regional prairie community, as well as nationally, and internationally.
The candidate will have demonstrated an interdisciplinary appreciation for, and experience
in, the stewardship of watershed values and uses, such as those relating to water use and
conservation, recreation, land use, and urban and rural development. The candidate will
also be expected to develop collaborations and participate in areas such as disaster risk
management; a burgeoning centre of excellence in watershed and water science; the
Master of Rural Development and the new Master of Science in Environmental and Life
Sciences programs. The research program may be multi-jurisdictional or global and have
multi-stakeholder considerations such as Aboriginal and other communities, and fit within
the identified research priority area found within the Brandon University Strategic
Research Plan.
