From Neil Tandon <Neil.Tandon@lassonde.yorku.ca>
To "met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk" <met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk>

There are currently openings for MS and PhD students in the newly-established climate dynamics research group of Prof. Neil Tandon at York University. This group is based in the Department of Earth and Space Science and Engineering (ESSE) within the Lassonde School of Engineering. Students would begin studies in September 2018 with support from a teaching or research assistantship, and they would work towards a degree in Earth and Space Science. More information about ESSE and its degree programs may be found at http://esse.lassonde.yorku.ca


There are a wide range of possible research topics, including long-term.changes in the Hadley circulation and midlatitude jets, cloud-circulation interaction, the dynamics of extreme precipitation, motion of Arctic sea ice, and variability of the ocean overturning circulation. Prof. Tandon’s group is computationally focused, combining numerical model simulations with analysis of various datasets. Additional information about Prof. Tandon’s research may be found at

http://esse.lassonde.yorku.ca/people/faculty/tandon-neil and http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Neil_Tandon


Prospective students should have an undergraduate degree in science, mathematics (pure or applied) or engineering and literacy in a scientific computing language (e.g., MATLAB, R, Python). Given the limited time before the start of the fall term, preference will be given to citizens and permanent residents of Canada. International students will also be considered, but because of visa processing time, admission would have to be deferred until January or September 2019.


Toronto is a wonderful place to live and work in. It is known for its diversity, inclusiveness, vibrant arts scene, walkable neighbourhoods and beautiful green spaces. ESSE students enjoy a stimulating research environment both on campus and through interactions with nearby institutions like Environment and Climate Change Canada, the University of Toronto and the University of Waterloo.


Does this appeal to you? If so, then please email Prof. Tandon at tandon@yorku.ca no later than July 16, 2018. In your email, please include the following: 1) a current CV/resume, 2) your cumulative undergraduate GPA, 3) your Canadian immigration status, 4) your current mailing address, 5) a two to four sentence description of research interest(s), and 6) the contact information (name, affiliation, phone and email) for one reference.
