Post-Doctoral Position: Air Quality Research Division, Environment and Climate Change Canada

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Air Quality Processes Research Section of Environment Canada’s Air Quality Research Division invites applications for the position of

Post-Doctoral Fellow
One year term (extendable for up to two additional years upon mutual agreement)

The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree in a physical science or engineering with specialization relevant to the study of atmospheric pollution using chemical transport models.  They will assist in the development, evaluation, and application of ECCC’s air quality modelling system for PAHs, benzene, and other air toxics. 

Potential research tasks include

·         refinement of model process representations

·         assessment of model performance relative to measurements in ambient air and deposition

·         simulation of past and projected future pollutant burdens

·         improvement of model-ready emission inventories

·         determination of contributions from relevant emission sources

·         assessment of environmental impacts of airborne releases.

Experience in any of the following areas are further assets for employment in these positions

·         coding using Fortran90

·         scientific programming in a UNIX/Linux environment using shell scripting

·         data analysis using R and/or statistical analysis programs

·         sampling and chemical analysis of PAHs and other air toxics in air and/or deposition

·         demonstrated ability to publish in the peer-reviewed scientific literature.

Qualified candidates are requested to send the following to Dr. Elisabeth Galarneau by e-mail (

·         one-page cover letter describing how their knowledge and experience could contribute to the tasks associated with the position
