Employment and Research Opportunities at PCIC with two Research Networks
The Canadian Sea Ice and Snow Evolution Network
The Canadian Sea Ice and Snow Evolution (CanSISE) Network is a newly funded 5-year collaborative partnership between researchers from eight Canadian universities (Toronto, York, McGill, Victoria, Guelph, Waterloo, UBC, UNBC) and three partner organizations (the Climate Research Division of Environment Canada, the Canadian Ice Service, and the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium). To a unique degree, CanSISE will bring together University and government researchers with climate modelling and observational expertise. The CanSISE Network seeks to advance seasonal to multidecadal prediction of Arctic sea ice and snow in Canada’s sub-Arctic, alpine, and seasonally snow covered regions. It will also quantify and exploit, for prediction purposes, the role that Northern Hemisphere snow and sea ice processes play in climate variability and change. For more information about the network, and network employment opportunities at all levels, please visit the CanSISE website at www.CanSISE.ca
Three opportunities are available at PCIC. See the following position descriptions for more detailed information:
The Canadian Network for Regional Climate and Weather Processes
The Canadian Network for Regional Climate and Weather Processes (CNRCWP) is a newly funded 5-year collaborative partnership between seven Canadian Universities (Montreal, McGill, Calgary, Victoria, Northern British Columbia, Waterloo, Saskatchewan), two partner organizations (Ouranos, Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium), and four Canadian Government labs of Environment Canada (CCCma, RPN, CPS, CDAS).
Canada's northern and arctic regions offer challenges to Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and climate projection, due to complex processes and feedbacks between various components of the climate system. A better understanding of these regional climate processes and interactions is crucial to improving the quality of both climate projection and NWP for this region. CNRCWP will exploit the added value of high-resolution models on climate and weather simulations, in particular in the representation of extremes, afforded as a result of the improved representation of physical processes, feedbacks and interactions through a Regional Earth System Modelling approach.
One post-doctoral research opportunity is available at PCIC. For more detailed information, see the position description.
