Postdoctoral Research Fellow with Environment and Climate Change Canada (Canada)

A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available in the Climate Research 
Division (CRD) of Environment and Climate Change Canada. We are seeking a 
highly qualified individual to undertake research on short-duration wind 
extremes and other climate extremes in Canada. Research will be performed under 
the supervision of Dr. Alex Cannon and in close collaboration with scientists 
in CRD and other national institutions. Specific objectives include: (1) 
research into the main physical drivers that could lead to changes in wind 
extremes under climate change; (2) analysis of observational datasets and 
climate model simulations to characterize Canada's extreme wind climate; and 
(3) use of statistical methods, climate model outputs, and physical insight to 
project how Canada's wind climate may change in the future. 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.

Location:  4905 Dufferin Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Duration: 1-yr term with possibility of extension

Application process: Interested candidates need to apply to the Postdoctoral 
Research Program (PRP):
https://nrcan-rncan.hiringplatform.ca/6355-postdoctoral-research-program-prp/20673-application-form/en.
 

When applying to the PRP you are applying to an inventory. In order to be 
considered and further assessed for the above-described position, applicants 
must meet the essential qualifications and clearly identify their education 
specialization.

Application deadline: Applications to the PRP competition are continuously 
accepted; however, please apply by September 15th, 2019 in order to be 
considered for this particular postdoctoral research position. Also, please 
send an email to Dr. Alex Cannon (alex.cannon@canada.ca) to let him know you 
applied.

If you have any questions please contact Dr. Alex Cannon.
