Assistant Professor, Experimental Climate Physics

The Department of Physics, and the School of the Environment at the University of Toronto invite applications for a cross-appointed tenure-stream appointment in Experimental Climate Physics (51% Department of Physics & 49% School of the Environment). The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, commencing July 1, 2014.

We seek a candidate with a focus on remote sensing of climate variables that can be used in high-resolution models to improve scientific knowledge of the origins and nature of regional climate variability on decadal to centennial time scales, with an emphasis on processes occurring at high latitudes. Possible research areas include chemistry-climate feedbacks, clouds and aerosols, polar climate variability, sea-ice retreat, Arctic climate and cryosphere, atmosphere-cryosphere interactions, and carbon reservoirs. We are particularly interested in applications from candidates whose research program fits well with the Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Physics group and within the newly established School of the Environment.
