Postdoctoral Research Fellow
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 the
analysis of precipitation and other climate data. Research will be
performed under the supervision of Dr. Xiaolan Wang and in close
collaboration with scientists in CRD and other national institutions.
Specific objectives of the position will include research on (1)
integrating/blending the in situ data with satellite precipitation
estimates to generate robust, representative gridded precipitation
datasets on various time scales (monthly, pentad, daily) for Canada; (2)
analyzing the resulting datasets to characterize Canada’s precipitation
climate and changes therein and (3) using them to downscale climate
model projections of precipitation. The work will involve manipulation
of large volumes of observed and climate model data and data quality
control, 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
