Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Toronto
We invite applications for a postdoctoral position at the University of
Toronto in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Physics.
The successful candidate will combine atmospheric observations and
modeling of atmospheric carbon monoxide (CO) to: validate CO
measurements from the Measurements of Pollution in the Troposphere
(MOPITT) instrument with data from the Total Carbon Column Observing
Network (TCCON), assess the impacts of wildfires on the carbon cycle of
the boreal forest, and quantify global urban ratios of CO to carbon
dioxide (CO2) to estimate urban emissions using CO2 measurements from
the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) and the Greenhouse Gases
Observing Satellite (GOSAT). The position term is for 1 year, renewable
for up to 2 additional years.
The candidate must have completed a Ph.D., or be scheduled to complete
their PhD before the end of August 2017. Expertise is required in one or
more of the following areas: atmospheric physics or chemistry,
environmental science and engineering, or biogeochemistry. Experience
working with and interpreting large atmospheric datasets is required,
and experience running an atmospheric model (e.g., GEOS-Chem) is
strongly desirable. Applicants should have demonstrated quantitative and
computational skills, and a successful publication record.
All individuals interested in this position must submit a CV, names and
contact information of three references, and a cover letter detailing
current and future research interests to Prof. Debra Wunch
(dwunch at atmosp.physics.utoronto.ca) by the closing date.
Applications will be evaluated beginning May 26, 2017 and will be
accepted until the position is filled.
