Environment Canada, Cloud Physics and Severe Weather Research Section: Two 
Post-Doctoral Positions

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Cloud Physics and Severe Weather Research Section of Environment Canada invites 
two postdoctoral scientists to work on analysis of cloud microphysical analysis 
and airborne cloud microphysical instrumentation.

Cloud Microphysical Measurements– Airborne cloud microphysical measurements are 
used for validation of remote sensing measurements, parameterizations for 
weather predictions and climate models. This PDF position will involve 
development and maintenance of the software for synthetic analysis of multiple 
entries from airborne instruments (e.g. particle scattering and imaging probes, 
bulk microphysical probes, radars and lidar), laboratory and wind tunnel 
calibrations of cloud particle probes, introducing corrections in the 
processing software, operation of cloud microphysical instrumentation during 
field campaigns, performing data collection airborne cloud measurements and 
their analysis to address scientific questions on cloud microstructure 
formation.
Cloud Microphysical Analysis and Modelling –This PDF position will involve 
analysis and interpretation of cloud microphysical data collected during 
airborne field campaigns with an emphasis on the results of the recent campaign 
on measurements of microphysical properties of mesoscale tropical convective 
storms. The candidate is expected to be to have a strong background in cloud 
modelling.
A Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences, physics or engineering, or a related 
discipline is required. Demonstrated skills in experimental atmospheric physics 
are also required. Candidates are expected to have established their ability to 
conduct original, independent scientific research, as well as familiarity with 
laboratory experiments; high performance computing (Matlab) and background in 
data analysis, physics and math are required. A demonstrated ability to publish 
in the peer-reviewed literature is essential. They are expected to be able to 
work well in a team and to communicate the results of their research orally and 
in writing. The annual range of the salary is $50K-60K CAD.
Qualified candidates are requested to send their curriculum vitae, including a 
full list of publications and conference presentations, contact information for 
3 references, a one-page cover letter indicating their date of availability and 
describing how their knowledge and experience are aligned with the position, to 
Dr. Alexei Korolev by e-mail 
(Alexei.Korolev@ec.gc.ca<mailto:Alexei.Korolev@ec.gc.ca>).
Since Environment Canada recruits the PDF candidates through the Canada's 
Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the applicants must 
submit their documents and be included in the NSERC inventory of Visiting 
Fellowships in Canadian Government Laboratories Program.  Applications to the 
inventory can be made through the link:    
http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/Students-Etudiants/PD-NP/Laboratories-Laboratoires/index_eng.asp
During submitting the document to NSERC the name of the organization and 
section (e.g. Environment Canada, Cloud Physics and Severe Weather Research 
Section) must be indicated.
To be eligible, the candidate must have obtained a PhD within the past 5 yrs.
