Department of Physics, University of Toronto, Canada
Postdoctoral position - ACE-FTS Climatology Project

A post-doctoral position (PDF) is available beginning in Fall 2013 (potentially from October 2013) in the Department of Physics at the University of Toronto. This position is associated with the Atmospheric Chemistry Experiment (ACE) satellite mission (see and is funded by the Canadian Space Agency/Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council for two years.

The PDF will be part of the ACE satellite science team working with data from the high resolution infrared Fourier transform spectrometer (ACE-FTS). ACE-FTS provides vertical profiles of a large number of atmospheric trace gases. The PDF will be responsible for developing climatologies of upper troposphere / lower stratosphere species measured by ACE-FTS and investigating the global distributions and temporal evolution of these species. In addition, the PDF will be involved in model-measurement intercomparison studies and exploring new ways of comparing solar occultation measurements with model output.

The position is based in Toronto, Canada and will be supervised by Prof. Kaley Walker. Salary is commensurate with experience.

Candidates must hold a PhD in atmospheric physics or chemistry (or a relevant and related chemistry, physics or mathematics field) and must have excellent computation, analysis and written and oral communication skills. Preference will be given to candidates with experience working with large data sets, satellite/remote sensing measurements or atmospheric models. Candidates must be self-motivated and able to work independently.

Applicants should send a CV, application letter and the names of at least two references (preferably three) to Prof. Kaley Walker at: The one-page application letter should address the qualifications and suitability of the candidate for the PDF position. *Be sure to note the title of the position that you are applying for in the subject of your email and in your letter.*
