Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Satellite Data Analysis and Atmospheric Modeling 

The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at McGill University in Montreal, Canada seeks a postdoctoral fellow to analyze satellite data and conduct numerical simulations for understanding atmospheric water vapor distribution and variation in the upper-troposphere and lower-stratosphere region.

Required qualifications include:

  • PhD in Atmospheric Sciences or a relevant physical science discipline (e.g., Meteorology, Physics, Computational Fluid Dynamics, etc.); and
  • Experience of scientific computing and capability of running high-resolution atmospheric dynamics models such as WRF and transport model such as HYSPLIT.

Desirable qualifications:

  • Experience of satellite data analysis; and
  • Knowledge of radiative transfer and cloud physics.

The initial appointment will be for one year, renewable contingent on satisfactory performance and funding availability. Interested candidates should contact Professor Yi Huang by email, enclosing a curriculum vitae, transcripts of academic records, and names and contacts of at least two references.
