Canada Research Chair (Tier II)
1. Energy and Natural Resources Law and Policy
2. Environmental Risk Management and Communication
The University of Saskatchewan invites applications from scholars with a strong research profile for a SSHRC Tier II Canada Research Chair (CRC) in one of the following fields: Energy and Natural Resources Law and Policy or Environmental Risk Management and Communication.
Energy and Natural Resources Law and Policy: The College of Law invites applications from individuals qualified to develop and lead a research agenda exploring the ways in which law and policy regulate and support responsible use of energy sources and other natural resources. Taking into account the rights and interests of Indigenous peoples and other affected communities, as well as protection of the natural environment and ecosystems, the Chair is expected to examine governance in a broad sense, including the role of public and private sector actors. The Chair would supervise graduate and undergraduate/professional student research into law and policy issues relating to energy, natural resources, and environmental protection at a local, national, and international level. There is considerable scope for the Canada Research Chair to shape a research agenda according to her or his own interests, but promising directions could include the legal and administrative processes for environmental assessment and for consultation with affected communities, the roles of public and private law in regulating energy and natural resources industries, or the influence of international norms and commitments on local laws and policies.

Environmental Risk Management and Communication: The School of Environment and Sustainability invites applications from individuals whose research and scholarly interests link the study of environmental risk with the societal goal of sustainability. The ideal candidate will have established him/herself as an upcoming leader in problem‐oriented research, with a focus on advancing research, policy and/or practice in areas related, but not necessarily limited, to: frameworks for the management and regulation of risk (including governance, policy, law, assessment and management), communication approaches to hazards and risks, and/or consideration of cross‐scalar social, environmental, and economic consequences of environmental change and/or impact. The University of Saskatchewan offers an exciting and unique platform for risk scholarship in the sustainability realm, given Saskatchewan’s growing natural resource‐based economy. The successful candidate will join a highly engaged interdisciplinary faculty working across the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and physical sciences. For further details, visit http://www.usask.ca/sens/documents/SENS%20CRC%20Risk%20Management%20Position%20Advertisement.pdf or contact Executive Director Toddi Steelman at email@example.com.
The ideal candidate will have a PhD, JD, or LLM (obtained within the last ten years), have a strong research record, be acknowledged by their peers as having the potential to lead in their field, and have experience in developing interdisciplinary research partnerships. Successful candidates are expected to mount an independent, externally funded research program and to participate in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The successful candidate will be appointed to a tenured or tenure‐track position at the assistant or associate professor level, commensurate with qualifications, and will be nominated for a Tier II CRC. The CRC is awarded, following rigorous evaluation by the CRC Secretariat, for a five‐year term, renewable once (please visit www.chairs‐chaires.gc.ca for more information).
