Title: re: PDF position at Environment Canada

The Air Quality Research Division invites applications for the position of an NSERC Visiting Fellowship in Canadian Government Laboratories (Post-Doctoral Fellow) for a one year term with the possibility of renewal for up to 2 additional years upon mutual agreement (see attached also).  

The focus of the research will be on the formation of oxidized products, including Secondary Organic Aerosol (SOA) via semi- and intermediate volatility organics derived from unconventional oil and gas extraction.  The work will include focused laboratory and field studies. The laboratory component of the research project will involve the use of flow tubes and/or smog chambers, with advanced gas and aerosol instrumentation (HR-ToF-AMS, HR-ToF-CIMS, HR-ToF-PTR-MS, SMPS) to study the oxidation and chemical interaction between organic gases and aerosols under realistic atmospheric conditions. Field studies exploring the atmospheric transformations of primary organic emissions from the oil and gas sector will also be conducted. The successful candidate will work closely with university collaborators and scientists at Environment Canada.

A Ph.D. in chemistry, atmospheric sciences, environmental engineering, or a related discipline is required. Demonstrated skills in experimental atmospheric chemistry/physics are also required. Experience with advanced gas and aerosol instrumentation use (Chemical ionization mass spectrometry (CIMS), Aerosol mass spectrometry (AMS), SMPS), computer programming, and/or complex data analysis is highly desirable. Prior experience with field measurements is also desirable.

The successful candidate must have the ability to travel to field studies for periods of up to 6 weeks, to work in a team environment and with multiple collaborators.  A demonstrated ability to publish in the peer-reviewed literature is essential.

Qualified candidates are requested to send their curriculum vitae, including a full list of publications and conference presentations, their date of availability and contact information for 3 references to Dr. John Liggio by e-mail (

Successful candidates must be included in the inventory of Canada's Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Visiting Fellowships in Canadian Government Laboratories Program prior to their selection for the position.  Applications to the inventory can be made through the link below.

Review of complete applications will begin immediately until the position is filled.

To be eligible, the candidate must have obtained a PhD within the past 5 yrs. Environment Canada's Air Quality Research Division studies the chemistry and physics of the atmosphere as it pertains to a variety of atmospheric pollution problems.
