      Assistant Professor in Earth Observation for Energy and Environment
      The Department of Geomatics Engineering, in the Schulich School of
      Engineering at the University of
      Calgary, invites applications for the position of Assistant Professor
      (tenure track) in earth observation for
      energy and environment, effective July 1, 2008. As part of its
      commitment to excellence and growth in the
      energy and environment priority area, the University of Calgary is
      undertaking a major expansion which
      involves adding over 80 faculty members, a major new research and
      education facility, and spaces for an
      additional 650 undergraduate and 350 graduate students.
      Interdisciplinary research and education is
      central to the expansion, and the successful candidate will work
      closely with other researchers in the
      Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment & Economy (ISEEE),
      Energy and Environment Systems
      Group (www.ucalgary.ca/ees) and the Centre for Environmental
      Engineering Research and Education
      (http://www.schulich.ucalgary.ca/CEERE/index.html ).
      A PhD in Earth observation or related geomatics engineering
      disciplines with applications in energy and
      environment is required. Demonstrated research expertise in earth
      observation with applications to
      environmental problems is desirable. Expertise in one or more of the
      following ground-based, airborne
      and satellite observing systems, methods and applications is
      desirable: high-resolution satellite imagery,
      LiDAR, SAR (including InSAR, POLSAR and POLinSAR), radar and laser
      altimetry; new data acquisition
      techniques in Earth observation, development of innovative techniques
      for data integration, image/signal
      processing, pattern recognition, and the analysis of
      multi-dimensional, multi-sensor, multi-temporal earth
      observation data; desirable applications are those oriented towards
      energy and environment, such as
      glacier ice monitoring, water and air quality monitoring, forestry,
      land deformation and natural hazards
      monitoring.
      The position is expected to link with all related disciplines of
      geomatics engineering and involves both
      teaching and research in earth observation applied to energy and
      environment. The applicant is expected
      to develop a strong research program and should be capable of
      attracting external funding for these
      research activities and graduate student support. The selected
      candidate must also have the capability
      and the flexibility to teach at all levels of the Geomatics
      Engineering program and will be required to
      register as a Professional Engineer in the Province of Alberta within
      2 years of initial appointment. The
      appointee will have the opportunity of close collaboration with many
      allied oil & gas companies and
      research organizations located in Calgary.
      The Department of Geomatics Engineering is actively involved in all
      aspects of geomatics engineering
      and has 21 faculty members, some 90 graduate students, and 55 students
      in each year of the
      undergraduate program. State-of-the-art geomatics engineering
      equipment and computer facilities are
      available. Related information can be found at
      http://www.geomatics.ucalgary.ca
      The University of Calgary is a co-educational, non-denominational,
      government supported institution with
      a student population of about 27,000. The City of Calgary itself has a
      population of over one million and is
      situated within an hour's drive of Banff National Park, one of the
      most beautiful parts of the Rocky
      Mountains.
      All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians
      and permanent residents will be
      given priority. The University of Calgary respects, appreciates and
      encourages diversity.
      Applications should include a detailed curriculum vitae and a complete
      list of publications. Three letters of
      reference should be mailed directly to:
      Head, Department of Geomatics Engineering, Schulich School of Engineering
      University of Calgary, 2500 University Drive NW, Calgary, Alberta T2N
      1N4, Canada
