Post-Doctoral Fellowship
Quantifying emissions of particulate matter from agricultural sources

CDN $47,233 /yr - Some travel expenses paid

Full-time Post Doctoral Fellowship in the Research Branch of Agriculture
and Agri-Food Canada reporting to Dr. Elizabeth Pattey (laboratory of
micrometeorology).
Post starts 1 September 2011 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Potential post length is 19 months (31 March 2013) with possibilities of
extension.

The research centre is part of the federal department of agriculture and
is located at the Central Experimental Farm, of Ottawa (Ontario, Canada).

The project consists in refining an agro-environmental indicator for
quantifying the emissions of particulate matter (PM2.5, PM10 and TSP)
from agricultural sources in Canada, as part of the National
Agri-Environmental Health Analysis and Reporting Program. The emphasis
will be on improving the calculation of PM emissions from cultivated
fields caused by wind erosion, tillage and harvest. The candidate will
also be involved in experimentation aiming at deriving coefficients of
PM emissions from Canadian agricultural sources.  The candidate will be
actively involved in communicating the research results (workshops,
conference and scientific papers).  He/She should be fluent in English
(oral and written) and have a valid driver's licence.

Suitable profile and experience

o       abilities to use and verify models (including dispersion models)
o       familiar with agricultural micrometeorology and related instrumentation
o       familiar with mid-latitude agricultural management practices
o       knowledge in atmospheric science
o       abilities to use and write scripts in GIS (ArcGIS), Matlab and write
macros in     Excel
o       knowledge of Fortran and C++ is an asset
