Are you a ‘mountain person’ committed to the well-being of Canada’s mountain peoples and places? Are you a seasoned leader with not-for-profit governance experience? Are you looking for an opportunity to bring your passion and energy to grow partnerships, knowledge, and research in service of Canada’s diverse mountain regions? If so, the Canadian Mountain Network wants to hear from you.

This funded research project will deliver quantitative understanding of the dynamics of the transition from debris-covered glacier to rock glacier, what geophysical and climatic factors influence it, and how the glacier’s contribution to the downstream water supply evolves. The outputs of this project will be used to help deliver information on these hidden ice and water resources for local knowledge networks and improve climate resilience for remote and vulnerable communities.

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) seeks to enable sustainable and resilient mountain development for improved and equitable livelihoods through knowledge and regional cooperation.

Mountain Research Initiative, University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Initiative, the Global Network for Observations and Information in Mountain Environments (GEO-GNOME), aims at connecting GEO Members, Flagships, Initiatives and Community Activities with links to Earth Observations (EO) (in-situ, remote sensing) in mountain regions, as well as relevant research institutions, projects and mountain observation networks to facilitate and coordinate access to environmental and social-ecological data and information on global change in mountains.

Do you want to help shape the future of our mountainous environments? Are you passionate about how our mountains can contribute to food production, safeguard water supply, and mitigate climate change? Do you want to do this whilst gaining cutting-edge skills? If so, this PhD is for you.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Kiel University, Germany.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Kiel University, Germany, invites applications for a new Professorship in Geoarchaeology and Environmental Hazards (W3) at the Institute for Ecosystem Research in the Section of Geography to be filled by 1st October 2020.

The new professorship will integrate and develop ecosystem and geoarchaeological concepts and methods. A focus will be placed on the quantitative reconstruction, analysis, and modelling of geomorphological, archaeo-sedimentological, and archaeo-pedological dynamics and long-term processes in cultural landscapes.

University of York, United Kingdom. 

Applications are invited for a Daphne Jackson Fellowship that will be hosted by the University of York. The Fellowship is intended for individuals returning to research in any field of Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) that is aligned to the University’s Research Strategy.
