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>).
