    Post-doctoral Fellow - Air Quality Modelling

The Air Quality Research Division invites applications for the position 
of an NSERC Visiting Fellowship in Canadian Government Laboratories 
(Post-Doctoral Fellow) for a one year term with the possibility of 
renewal for up to 2 additional years upon mutual agreement.

The focus of the research will be two-fold: (1) the effect of mixing 
state on the heterogeneous oxidation of organic aerosol compounds and 
(2) the effect of metallic aerosol components on organic aerosol 
chemistry and associated human health impacts. The work will involve 
focused laboratory studies with the use of flow tubes and/or smog 
chambers, and advanced gas and aerosol instrumentation (HR-ToF-AMS, 
HR-ToF-CIMS, HR-ToF-PTR-MS, SMPS). The successful candidate will work 
closely with scientists at Environment Canada and may collaborate with 
scientists at Health Canada and academia.

A Ph.D. in chemistry, atmospheric sciences, environmental engineering, 
or a related discipline is required. Demonstrated skills in experimental 
atmospheric chemistry/physics are also required. Experience with 
advanced gas and aerosol instrumentation use, such as Aerosol mass 
spectrometry (AMS), Proton transfer reaction mass spectrometry (PTR-MS), 
Chemical Ionization Mass spectrometry (CIMS), and SMPS is recommended, 
but not essential. Experience with computer programming (IGOR Pro), or 
complex data analysis is also highly desirable.

The successful candidate must have the ability to work in a team 
environment and with multiple collaborators. A demonstrated ability to 
publish in the peer-reviewed literature is essential.

Qualified candidates are requested to send their curriculum vitae, 
including a full list of publications, their date of availability and 
contact information for 2 references to Dr. John Liggio by e-mail 
(John.Liggio at canada.ca <mailto:John.Liggio at canada.ca>).

Successful candidates must be included in the inventory of Canada's 
Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Visiting 
Fellowships in Canadian Government Laboratories Program prior to their 
selection for the position. Applications to the inventory can be made 
through the link below, once selected.

Review of applications will begin immediately. However, candidates who 
anticipate graduating with a Ph.D. in the next 6-8 months will also be 

To be eligible, the candidate must have obtained a PhD within the past 5 
yrs. Environment and Climate Change Canada's Air Quality Research 
Division studies the chemistry and physics of the atmosphere as it 
pertains to a variety of atmospheric pollution problems.
