Postdoctoral fellow position in Arctic climate research using lidar
    The Atmospheric-Optics Lab in Physics and Atmospheric Science at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada) seeks a postdoctoral fellow to operate and maintain a new Raman lidar system located in the High Arctic at Eureka, Nunavut Territory, as part of the Arctic Radiative Environment Theme of the Canadian Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Change (CANDAC). The lidar will be used to measure tropospheric temperatures and water vapour, in addition to the optical properties of aerosols and ice crystals, and will be operated in conjunction with an Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (AERI). This is a research position, and the successful applicant will be required to analyze the measurements and publish the results. Experience in lidar operations and/or high-energy laser systems is desired, although a firm grounding in other areas of experimental science may be accepted. Field trips to Eureka are an important aspect of the position, and computer programming ability is required. The successful applicant will take a leadership role in a highly collaborative environment.
    Applications should include a cover letter describing the candidate's background, a curriculum vitae, and two letters of reference. The materials should be emailed to Tom Duck (tom.duck@dal.ca). Review of the applications will begin November 21, 2008 and will continue until the position has been filled.
Postdoctoral Fellow / Research Associate for aerosol profile study
    The Atmospheric-Optics Laboratory in Physics and Atmospheric Science at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada) seeks a postdoctoral fellow to analyze, interpret and and publish aerosol profile measurements obtained with the Dalhousie Raman Lidar system. Measurements of pollution and biomass burning aerosols were obtained as part of a joint study with Environment Canada on transboundary aerosol transport. Background in aerosol science is required for this position, and experience in the interpretation of lidar measurements using the output from models such as GEOS-Chem, AURAMS, and FLEXPART is desired. A record of publishing in the peer-reviewed literature is expected. The position will be for two years, contingent upon performance and continued availability of funding.
     Applications should include a cover letter describing how the applicant's background meets the search criteria, a curriculum vitae, and the names and email addresses of two professional references. Application materials and other communications should be emailed to Prof. Thomas J. Duck (tom.duck@dal.ca). Review of the applications will begin by May 15, 2009.
