PhD position on Aerosol-Cloud-Radiation Interactions over the Arctic at UQAM


A fully-funded PhD studentship is available in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Quebec at Montreal under the supervision of Prof. Eric Girard. This project aims to investigate indirect radiative effects of aerosols related to ice nucleation in cold clouds over the Arctic. This project involves collaboration with atmospheric chemists and field scientists to develop new ice nucleation parameterizations based on laboratory studies and to use in-situ observations for model validation. This Ph.D. position is within the framework of NETCARE (NETwork on Climate and Aerosols: Addressing Key Uncertainties in Remote Canadian Environments) funded by NSERC. NETCARE is comprised of the leading scientists in the Canadian climate-aerosol community. The central impetus within the network is that the key uncertainties in this complex field must be addressed by multidisciplinary studies of interacting components of the Earth system, particularly the ocean, atmosphere, and cryosphere. NETCARE involves laboratory studies, in-situ measurements and modeling.


Successful applicant will have an MSc in Atmospheric Sciences or related disciplines. Good programming skills in Fortran, C/C++, Matlab or R, familiarity with UNIX environment and shell scripting and excellent written and oral communication skills in French and English will be definite assets.


Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, academic transcripts and contact details of three referees to Eric Girard ( by November 22, 2013. Information about the PhD program at UQAM can be obtained from and/or
