PhD Student Opportunity, Atmospheric Modelling / Downscaling of glacier
mass balance.

The Menounos and Jackson research groups at the University of Northern
British Columbia has a funded opening for a PhD student in the Natural
Resources and Environmental Studies graduate program who is interested
in using regional-scale atmospheric models to downscale climate and
force glacier mass balance models over the Western Cordillera.
Candidates should have a Master’s degree or equivalent in a relevant
field with an interest in understanding the meteorological drivers of
glacier mass balance, and experience in high-resolution atmospheric
modelling. An understanding of, and experience with, models such as WRF,
and computational tools such as fortran, unix shell scripting, python,
R, or matlab, will be an asset.

The application deadline for the PhD program
<http://www.unbc.ca/nres-graduate-program/phd> is February 15, 2014 for
a May or September 2014 start date. However interested students should
first contact Professors Peter Jackson (Peter.Jackson@unbc.ca) or Brian
Menounos (Brian.Menounos@unbc.ca) for further information on this
position, as well as its remuneration and requirements, before formally
applying to UNBC.
