Postdoctoral Positions in Atmospheric Aerosol Modeling

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) invites applications for
postdoctoral positions to conduct research in the area of numerical
representation of atmospheric aerosol processes in ECCC’s operational
air quality prediction model GEM-MACH (Global Environmental Multiscale –
Modelling Air quality and CHemistry). GEM-MACH is a fine to large scale
comprehensive meteorology-composition-chemistry model containing a full
description of atmospheric chemistry, aerosols and meteorological
processes. The selected candidates will join the air quality modeling
and research group at ECCC and contribute to the development of the next
generation aerosol module for GEM-MACH. The new aerosol module is driven
by the need to capture up-to-date advancements in the science, improve
air quality and climate predictions, develop a fully interactive
meteorology-composition-chemistry model and address aerosols related
outstanding science issues including aerosol-cloud-radiation interaction.

Candidates should hold Ph. D. in Atmospheric science or a related field.
In-depth knowledge and modeling experience in one or more atmospheric
aerosol process parameterizations and strong computer programming skills
are required. Air quality, climate or weather prediction numerical
modeling skills would be advantageous to the positions. An ideal
candidate will be a highly motivated, creative and independent researcher.

The postdoctoral positions are administered by Natural Sciences and
Engineering Research Council (NSERC) under the Visiting Fellowships in
Canadian Government Laboratories (VF) Program for Canadian government
research institutions. The fellowship offers attractive salary
(currently, $62,710/year), excellent work environment and opportunity to
work with research groups in Canadian government research institutions
to promising emerging scientists and engineers. NSERC-VF policy requires
that postdoctoral fellowship appointments be made to individuals who
have received their doctorate within the past five years. NSERC VF
postdoctoral fellowships can last up to three years.

Interested candidates are requested to forward their Curriculum Vitae,
names and contact information of two-three references and any inquiries
by email to: ashu.dastoor@canada.ca .
