Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunity: Sea Ice Biogeochemical Studies for Improved Climate Modeling

Anticipated start date: On or before Sep. 1, 2022.
Application date: Applications will be reviewed starting March 31, 2022 and will continue until a suitable candidate is identified.
Dr. Brent Else (University of Calgary, Department of Geography) and Dr. Lisa Miller (Fisheries and Oceans Canada) are seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to contribute to the international project: "Climate relevant interactions and feedbacks: the key role of sea ice and snow in the polar and global climate system (CRiceS)". This project, funded in part by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme and Canada’s New Frontiers in Research Horizon Global Platform, focuses on improving biogeochemical model predictions of the role of polar processes and feedbacks in the global climate system. The Postdoctoral Fellow (PDF) will be responsible for synthesizing existing observational data for model development in collaboration with project partners. The PDF should expect to lead and conduct field studies relevant to modeling efforts. The ideal candidate will be either an observational scientist interested in pathways to mobilize field studies in climate models, or a modeling scientist interested in broadening their perspectives to include observational Polar science.
