The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at McGill University 
is seeking outstanding applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor 
position to strengthen its leadership in remote sensing. The successful 
applicant will be expected to develop an active research program,

It is expected that the successful candidate will pursue research in 
remote sensing with a strong modelling and/or observational component. 
The range of possible research areas is broad and includes, but is not

structure and microphysics of clouds and precipitation, 2) the use of 
remote sensing data for the characterization and understanding of 
radiative and dynamical processes, trace gas emissions, cloud life 
cycles, and their impacts on climate variability, 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
