Postdoc Position in Climate Modeling at the University of Toronto and the 
University of Victoria, Canada

This is to announce a postdoctoral research fellowship position on impacts of 
aerosol forcing on Northern Hemisphere climate. The project deals with aerosol 
forcing influence on Northern Hemisphere circulation, storm tracks, and 
snow/sea ice processes, with some focus on the Canadian sector. It is funded by 
Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and the Natural Sciences and 
Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). The position will be primarily 
located at the University of Toronto, Canada, and will be carried out in close 
collaboration with research scientists at ECCC's Centre for Climate Modeling 
and Analysis located at the University of Victoria, BC, Canada. Collaborative 
travel between the two institutions will take place (expenses for this travel 
are included in the project funding). The project includes analysis of the 
Canadian Earth System model CanESM and the CMIP archives, as well as original 
Earth System Model simulations designed for the project. The position is linked 
to ongoing collaborations between ECCC and several Canadian Universities 
through the Canadian Sea Ice and Snow Evolution Network (CanSISE.ca).

This is a two-year research project. The postdoctoral fellowship appointment 
will be for one year and renewable for a second year.

For further details, please email the project principal investigators Paul 
Kushner (paul.kushner@utoronto.ca) and John Fyfe (john.fyfe@canada.ca). 
Application deadline is October 18, 2016, although late applications will be 
considered.
