Physics/Maths/Engineering with a strong computer science background and
demonstrated ability in developing scientific code (in Fortran) for
science and/or engineering applications is required. A background in
Atmospheric Sciences or Meteorology and experience in high performance
computing is considered a plus. The initial appointment is for one year,

Postdoctoral research positions
Applications are invited for two postdoctoral research positions with
the Canadian Regional Climate Modelling group (<www.mrcc.uqam.ca
<%22http://>>) based at University of Quebec at Montreal. The first
position will focus on the assessment of climate change impacts on
Canadian water resources using an ensemble of Global and Regional
Climate Models and their transient climate simulations. The second
position will focus on understanding land-climate interactions in the
high-latitudes using one or more state-of-the-art Regional Climate
Models and available observations.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences or
related disciplines. Good programming skills (in Fortran or similar
languages) and experience working with Global and/or Regional Climate
Models will be definite assets. The candidate should possess excellent
written and oral communication skills in English and should have
previous experience publishing in peer-reviewed journals. The position
is available from 1st December 2011 (or as soon as possible thereafter)
and is initially for one year, renewable for another year subject to
satisfactory performance and availability of funds.

The closing date for applications is 25th October 2011. Interested
applicants should submit a cover letter, CV and contact details of three
professional referees by e-mail to <ESCER-positions@sca.uqam.ca>.
