Postdoctoral Fellow - Hydrologic Processes - McMaster University,
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Hydrometeorology and climatology group at the School of Geography and
Earth Science, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada is seeking
applications for a postdoctoral fellow starting spring or fall 2015.
Selected candidate will be part of newly funded Canadian FloodNet
Project. Ten universities and relevant government organizations are
involved in this five year project. The main objective of the Canadian
FloodNet is to improve our knowledge of flood processes and their
impacts and to enhance flood forecasting and management capacity in Canada.

The successful candidate will be responsible for assessing the spatial
variability of observed and simulated extreme precipitation events in
selected regions across Canada. He/she will also evaluate the
performance and applicability of commonly used indices to characterize
extreme precipitation events in these regions. The proposed work would
help to determine whether spatial trends in extreme precipitation have
been adequately simulated by the global and regional climate models and
how these simulations may be downscaled to local scale for hydrologic
studies.

The applicant should have or be about to obtain a Ph.D degree hydrology,
meteorology, atmospheric physics or related field. The applicant should
possess strong analytical and programming skills using Fortran, Matlab
or R and familiarity with Unix. Salary will be $40,000 per year plus
benefits. This position is for two years.

Qualified candidates should submit a cover letter, statement of research
interests, resume and names of two referees to Dr. Altaf Arain at
address listed below. Application deadline is 20 March 2015. Review of
the applications will begin immediately.

Sincerely

M. Altaf Arain (Ph.D)
