Tenure-track Faculty Position in Atmospheric Remote Sensing

McGill University

The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at McGill University is seeking

outstanding applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in remote sensing of the

atmosphere, the ice or the ocean surface to strengthen its leadership in remote sensing and earth

system science. The successful applicant will be expected to develop an active research program,

supervise graduate students, and teach a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in the

Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and in the Earth System Science program. A

relevant doctoral degree in physical sciences or engineering is required.

The successful candidate is expected to pursue research in remote sensing of the atmosphere, the

ice or the ocean surface with a strong modelling and/or observational component. The range of

possible research areas is broad and includes but is not limited to: 1) the development of retrieval

methods for studies of atmospheric composition, temperature, wind, precipitation, air-sea

interactions, surface ocean temperatures and circulation 2) the use of measurement data for the

characterization and understanding of processes affecting weather, air quality, climate, sea ice

and 3) the development and validation of remote sensing instruments. The Department of

Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences has strong ties with the Departments of Mathematics and

Statistics, Chemistry, and with the Earth System Science Program. Access to high performance

computing is available through Compute Canada.
