Professor, Structural Geology (Ap 17-11), Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique

Centre Eau Terre Environnement (Tenure-Track Position)

Context and summary
Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) is the only institution in Québec dedicated exclusively to graduate level university research and training. The influence of our faculty and students extends around the world. In partnership with the community and with industry, we are proud to contribute to the development of society through our discoveries and through the training we provide to a new generation of scientific, social, and technological innovators.

The Earth science research program of INRS Eau Terre Environnement Research Centre is at the heart of two major partnerships: in research within the Quebec Geoscience Centre (QGC) in collaboration with the Quebec division of the Geological Survey of Canada, and in training through the inter-university postgraduate program in Earth sciences offered in collaboration with the Department of Geology and Geological Engineering at Laval University.

INRS has several laboratories relevant to structural geology research: CT scanning for civil engineering and natural resources (which includes a medical CT scan); Physical, numerical and geophysical simulation (which includes a centrifuge and sandbox apparatus); Open geothermal laboratory (for petrophysical measurements); Physical, chemical and mineralogical characterization of rocks (for multiparameter measurements on drill cores); and Geoscience data acquisition and interpretation (in applied geophysics).

INRS would like to fill a new faculty position. The successful candidate will collaborate with the multidisciplinary research program at the INRS Eau Terre Environnement Research Centre in Quebec City by contributing recognized expertise in structural geology.

Main duties and responsibilities
• Develop innovative research activities in structural geology in relation with the Centre’s geoscience research program. This could include structural analysis of sedimentary basins and fold and thrust belts, and/or structural interpretation of seismic profiles. The chosen candidate could also carry out complementary research on the following themes: 
           o Tectonics
           o Mineral deposits

• Collaborate with QGC researchers in areas such as geodynamics, geophysics, stratigraphy, sedimentary basins, volcanology, Precambrian and Phanerozoic geology, mineral resources, oil and gas resources, geothermal energy, physical or numerical modelling, geostatistics, machine learning, and hydrogeology.
• Secure funding to support research activities through external grants from public and private organizations and industrial partnerships;
• Participate in training activities, particularly within the framework of the Centre’s masters and doctoral programs, and through the mentoring and teaching of students and research staff.
• Teach courses in Earth sciences for the training programs of MSc and PhD students (for example: GEO9604 - Advanced structural geology; GEO9930 - Continental geodynamics; GEO9911 – Field trip in geology; GEO1502 – Subsurface characterization methods).

Requirements
• Doctorate in geology, Earth sciences, or geological engineering, with a specialization in structural geology;
• Relevant postdoctoral research experience;
• Strong scientific publishing record illustrating leadership and innovation;
• Aptitude for basic and applied research, as well as multidisciplinary teaching and mentoring at the masters and doctorate levels;
• Entrepreneurial qualities and demonstrated ability to secure external research funding.
