Research Chair in Ocean Chemistry, Dalhousie University
The Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada (www.oceanography.dal.ca) is respected internationally for its strong interdisciplinary training and research in ocean science. Together with partners from academia, government and industry, the Department now plays a leading role within the newly formed Halifax Marine Research Institute which seeks to maximize potential of the region’s vibrant and growing ocean research and technology sector. Since 2011, the Department has hosted CERC.OCEAN, the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Ocean Science and Technology (www.dal.ca/cercocean) which is developing new approaches to observe the changing ocean and study ocean processes. In association with this CERC.OCEAN group, Dalhousie University is seeking a motivated individual to fill a new ocean research chair to be held in the Department of Oceanography.
