Forwarded from CLIMLIST... A Visiting Fellow in Government Lab position is available immediately in Climate Research Division (CRD) of Environment and Climate Change Canada for a highly qualified individual to undertake research on climate extremes, focusing on future climate projections to support engineering, building, and infrastructure design. Research will be performed in close collaboration with scientists at CRD, universities, regional climate consortia, and national institutions. Specific objectives of the position will include research on historical estimation and projection of changes in climate extremes, including rainfall, wind, and snow. The work will involve manipulation of large volumes of observed and climate model data, as well as development and use of advanced statistical and mathematical methods to analyze data. Qualifications . Recent PhD (within 5-yr) in climate science or a related discipline . Aptitude and demonstrated ability to apply and interpret sophisticated statistical methods in climate or a related science . Demonstrated research potential . Graduate training and/or research experience in one or more of the study of climate extremes represented in global and regional climate models; estimation and analysis of future projections of extreme precipitation, winds, or snow; and statistical analysis of compound events will be an asset . Experience and ability in manipulating and analyzing very large datasets . Capable of working in a self-directed manner and within a team environment Interested applicants should contact Dr. Alex Cannon (Alex.Cannon@Canada.ca) or Dr. Xuebin Zhang (<Xuebin.Zhang@Canada.ca>). ---- Alex J. Cannon, Ph.D. Research Scientist, Climate Data and Analysis Section, Science and Technology Branch Environment and Climate Change Canada / Government of Canada
