Thank you, Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium (PCIC) University House 1 | PO Box 3060 STN CSC University of Victoria | Victoria BC Canada V8W 3R4 Tel: 250.472.4682 | Fax: 250.721.7217 | http://www.PacificClimate.org <http://www.pacificclimate.org/> --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posting: A two-year Postdoctoral Researcher position is available at Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium (PCIC), funded by NSERC project ‘Canadian Network for Regional Climate and Weather Processes’. The position is for a highly qualified individual to participate in the network project looking to distinguish regional climate changes from natural variability in support of the theme statistical/extremes allowed by fine mesh and land-atmosphere feedbacks/. The position will be located at the University of Victoria and will be jointly supervised by Prof. Francis Zwiers (PCIC) and Dr. Xuebin Zhang (Climate Data and Analysis Section and Adaptation and Impacts Research Section, Environment Canada). To be considered, applicants will have held their PhDs for less than 5-years at the time of acceptance of the offer employment. The position is available immediately and will remain open until a suitable candidate is found. Qualifications PhD in climatology or a related discipline Aptitude and demonstrated ability to apply and interpret sophisticated statistical methods in climate science Demonstrated research potential Graduate training and/or research experience in one or more of the study of climate extremes represented in global and regional climate models, evaluating climate models, or the study extreme climate events is an asset Experience and ability in manipulating and analyzing very large datasets Experience and/or desire to work on interdisciplinary projects and with interdisciplinary teams Capable of working in a self-directed manner and within a team environment. Application Procedure Applicants should submit a CV, list of publications, a statement of research interests, and three letters of reference to Ms. Cassbreea Dewis, firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>, with “ATTN: CNRCWP Postdoctoral Researcher” in the subject line. Additional information Address enquiries to Prof. Francis Zwiers and Dr. Xuebin Zhang, firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>. About the project: The Canadian Network for Regional Climate and Weather Processes (CNRCWP) is a newly funded 5-year collaborative partnership between seven Canadian Universities (Montreal, McGill, Calgary, Victoria, Northern British Columbia, Waterloo, Saskatchewan), two partner organizations (Ouranos, Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium), and four Canadian Government labs of Environment Canada (CCCma, RPN, CPS, CDAS). Canada's Nordic and the Arctic regions offer challenges to Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and climate projection, due to complex processes and feedbacks between various components of the climate system. A better understanding of these regional climate processes and interactions is crucial to improving the quality of both climate projection and NWP for this region. CNRCWP will exploit the added value of high-resolution models on climate and weather simulations, in particular in the representation of extremes, afforded as a result of the improved representation of physical processes, feedbacks and interactions through a Regional Earth System Modelling approach. Activities are organized around in the following three themes: 1) specific weather and climate phenomena permitted by high-resolution simulations, 2) statistical extremes allowed by fine mesh and land-atmosphere feedbacks and 3) land surface processes enhanced by improved representation of surface heterogeneity. About PCIC Applications are sought for a Postdoctoral Researcher that will be located at the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium (PCIC). The Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium (PCIC) was created to assess climate impacts in the Pacific and Yukon Region of Canada. The goals of the Consortium are to foster collaborative research, to strengthen the capacity to address regional climate change and variability, and to provide the scientific basis for policy development. PCIC is a regional climate service centre at the University of Victoria that provides practical information on the physical impacts of climate variability and change. Through collaboration with climate researchers and regional stakeholders, PCIC produces knowledge and tools in support of long-term planning.
