below. I apologize for the error.


The University of Calgary invites applications for a tenure-track faculty
position in Hydrological Science at the Assistant Professor level. The
successful applicant will be based in the Department of Geography and will
focus on aspects of sustainable water resource management, including e.g.,
the impacts of industrial, agricultural, recreational, and urban activity on
water resources, or water resource stress associated with climate change
(e.g., diminished snowpack, glacier retreat, increased evapotranspiration,
changing precipitation patterns, and magnitude and frequency of droughts).
Preference will be given to research programs at the watershed scale and we
encourage applicants working in the areas of physical hydrology,
hydroclimatology, aquatic ecosystems, or regional hydrological and
meteorological modelling.

The candidate will establish close links to other hydrological research
activities in the Department of Geography, the Department of Geoscience, and
other units within the Faculty of Science and the Schulich School of
Engineering. There are also outstanding opportunities to collaborate on
social-science and health issues related to water resources (e.g.,
economics, policy, natural resource management) within the Department of
Geography and the Faculties of Law, Environmental Design, and Medicine.

Ph.D. degree in hydrology or a closely related discipline is required by the
anticipated start date of July 1, 2013. We seek candidates with strong
research and teaching records who can complement and expand upon the
strengths of the Department of Geography.  Applicants should submit a CV, a
statement of research and teaching interests, samples of publications, and
evidence of teaching effectiveness (if applicable).  Applicants should
arrange for three confidential letters of reference to be submitted directly
to the Chair of the Selection Committee:

January 11th  2013. 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.

*If multiple candidates have equal qualification, priority will be given to
