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.

Required qualifications:
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.

Application instructions:
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.

Closing date:
Applications will be evaluated beginning May 26, 2017 and will be 
accepted until the position is filled.
