Employment and Research Opportunities at PCIC with the Canadian Sea Ice
and Snow Evolution Network

The Canadian Sea Ice and Snow Evolution (CanSISE) Network is a newly
funded 5-year collaborative partnership between researchers from eight
Canadian universities (Toronto, York, McGill, Victoria, Guelph,
Waterloo, UBC, UNBC) and three partner organizations (the Climate
Research Division of Environment Canada, the Canadian Ice Service, and
the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium). To a unique degree, CanSISE
will bring together University and government researchers with climate
modelling and observational expertise. The CanSISE Network seeks to
advance seasonal to multidecadal prediction of Arctic sea ice and snow
in Canada’s sub-Arctic, alpine, and seasonally snow covered regions. It
will also quantify and exploit, for prediction purposes, the role that
Northern Hemisphere snow and sea ice processes play in climate
variability and change. CanSISE activities are organized into three
theme areas, including a) seasonal to multi-decadal snow and sea-ice
prediction and projection, b) attributing change in snow and sea-ice,
and understanding its impacts, and c) improving our understanding of
snow and sea ice processes and climate interactions. CanSISE funding
over the period 2013-2018 will provide opportunities for up to 10
undergraduate internships, 12 graduate studentships at the PhD level, 20
postdoctoral fellowships, 2 research associates and a research
assistant. Recruiting for these positions has begun, and will be ongoing
throughout the life of the network. For more information about the
network, and network employment opportunities at all levels, please
visit the CanSISE website at www.CanSISE.ca <http://www.cansise.ca>.
