[Met-jobs] Postdoc position, McGill, Canada

From "Roger Brugge" <r.brugge@reading.ac.uk>
To "met-jobs@lists.rdg.ac.uk" <met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk>
Date Mon, 14 Mar 2011 08:54:06 +0000

A postdoctoral position in the storm track study is available from the 
Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at McGill University 
(http://www.mcgill.ca/meteo), pending budgetary approval. The proposed research 
aims to extend our understanding of North American storm tracks and their 
possible changes in a warm climate with specific focus on storms passing 
through Eastern Canada. More specifically a feature tracking method will be 
applied to high-resolution reanalysis data and regional climate model output to 
objectively characterize the climatology, seasonal cycle, inter-annual to 
decadal variability of North American storm tracks and their changes in future 
climate. Both physical and dynamical mechanisms will be also addressed.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in atmospheric science or a closely related 
field. Research experience in synoptic meteorology, large-scale atmospheric 
dynamics and various statistics would be an asset. The successful applicant 
will join the research group led by Prof. Seok-Woo Son and interact with 
scientists in Montreal region. The position will be initially awarded for a 
year starting in May 2011, and may be renewed for an additional year. To apply, 
please send a CV and the names (not letters) of two references by email to 
seok-woo.son@mcgill.ca<mailto:seok-woo.son@mcgill.ca>. The review will start on 
1st April.
