[Met-jobs] Postdoc Position in Climate Modeling at the University of Toronto and the University of Victoria, Canada

Postdoc
Position in Climate Modeling at the University of Toronto and
the University of Victoria, Canada

This

is to announce a postdoctoral research fellowship position on
impacts of aerosol forcing on Northern Hemisphere climate. The
project deals with aerosol forcing influence on Northern
Hemisphere circulation, storm tracks, and snow/sea ice
processes, with some focus on the Canadian sector. It is funded
by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and the Natural
Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). The
position will be primarily located at the University of Toronto,
Canada, and will be carried out in close collaboration with
research scientists at ECCC’s Centre for Climate Modeling and
Analysis located at the University of Victoria, BC, Canada.
Collaborative travel between the two institutions will take
place (expenses for this travel are included in the project
funding). The project includes analysis of the Canadian Earth
System model CanESM and the CMIP archives, as well as original
Earth System Model simulations designed for the project. The
position is linked to ongoing collaborations between ECCC and
several Canadian Universities through the Canadian Sea Ice and
Snow Evolution Network (CanSISE.ca).

This

is a two-year research project. The postdoctoral fellowship
appointment will be for one year and renewable for a second
year.

For
further details, please email the project principal
investigators Paul Kushner (paul.kushner@utoronto.ca)
and John Fyfe (john.fyfe@canada.ca).
Application deadline is October 18, 2016, although late
applications will be considered.
