A postdoctoral position in the storm track study is available from the 
Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at McGill University 
(, 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<>. The review will start on 
1st April.
