Postdoctoral fellowship at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Canada;jsessionid=1B7B5ADD1F62208CBA82E8B75871F7CF?careerId=320
We invite applications for a one-year (renewable for up to 2 additional years) postdoctoral fellowship to work on project “Modes of Pollution Transport from North America to Nova Scotia and Beyond”, funded under the Canadian Space Agency Earth System Science Data Analysis Program.

The successful candidate will use a combination of satellite- and model-derived atmospheric carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations to 1) quantify the long-term variability in the relative contribution of different pollution sources (local vs. regional vs. long-range) to air quality in Nova Scotia, 2) isolate the specific synoptic scale meteorological conditions leading to different modes (local, regional and long-range) of pollution events in Nova Scotia and export from North America, and 3) develop a framework for the interpretation of atmospheric composition measurements in Nova Scotia.  Objectives 1) and 2) inform policy regarding jurisdictional (provincial, federal, trans-boundary) pollutant reductions.


The successful candidate will hold (or complete by August 2017) a PhD in Atmospheric Science or a relevant area of Physics, Chemistry or Engineering.  He or she will have experience manipulating large atmospheric datasets (e.g., generated from model outputs or satellite measurements) and, ideally, have run an atmospheric model (e.g., GEOS-Chem).  Candidates must have strong written and oral communication skills, as demonstrated by a successful record of peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations.

Application Instructions

The position will remain open until it is filled, however, preference will be given to candidates who apply before May 29, 2017, when applications will begin to be reviewed.  To apply, please email a one-page cover letter, a CV, and the names and contact information of three references to Prof. Aldona Wiacek (,

With annual research funding exceeding $220 million, and an international reputation for success, Western ranks as one of Canada's top research-intensive universities. Our research excellence expands knowledge and drives discovery with real-world application. Western also provides an exceptional employment experience, offering competitive salaries, a wide range of employment opportunities and one of Canada's most beautiful campuses.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is one of four departments in the Faculty of Engineering. Faculty and staff in the department support and foster the educational and research pursuits of undergraduate and graduate engineering students, while providing the best student experience.

The Ontario Tornadoes Research Project aims to contribute to exploring tornado behavior and climatology using aircrafts and various remote sensing technologies, including radar and storm survey records, with the goal of improving knowledge of tornadoes in Ontario, including their detection, climatology and prediction.  The Ontario Tornadoes Research Project seeks to advance discovery in severe weather research, improve tornado prediction and warning, provide guidance on the building of safer and more resilient homes, and to inform policy development. There are two main components of the Project, ‘The Northern Ontario Flyover Project’ and ‘The Tornadoes in Ontario Project’.

The Research Associate, Meteorologist will apply their expertise and knowledge to a research pilot project, ‘The Tornadoes in Ontario Project’, aiming to improve knowledge of tornadoes, in collaboration with the Principal Investigator and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC).  The incumbent will carry out independent research to assist them in achieving their research outcomes, and will carry out the research project at ECCC’s research facility located at King City Radar Station, King City, Ontario and in field sites in Ontario.  The incumbent will ensure that research outcomes are achieved on time, and will communicate progress updates to internal and external stakeholders. The Research Associate, Meteorologist will play a lead role in enhancing the existing Ontario tornado database, evaluating and interpreting results, developing case studies, models and correlations, and preparing reports and other written material for presentations and submissions to various stakeholders as required.
