Three fully funded PhD positions are available with the Regional Climate
Modeling Group at the University of Quebec at Montreal in the area of land
surface modeling and land-climate interactions. The three projects will
focus on improving the representation of snow and glaciers, biosphere and
in-land water bodies, respectively, in the fifth generation of the
Canadian Regional Climate Model and will study land-climate interactions
for the high-latitude regions using carefully designed regional climate
model experiments and available observations. These PhD positions are
integrated within the Canadian Network for Regional Climate and Weather
Processes (cnrcwp.uqam.ca), with a focus on improving climate projections
and weather predictions for the Arctic region.
Successful applicants will have an MSc in Atmospheric Sciences or related
disciplines. Good programming skills in Fortran, C/C++, Matlab/R,
familiarity with UNIX environment and shell scripting and excellent
written and oral communication skills in French and English will be
definite assets. Interested applicants should send their CV, copies of
academic transcripts and contact details of three referees to Adelina
Alexandru (email@example.com) by October 30, 2015.
