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.
