1. University of Alberta
The Government of Canada has a prestigious Post-doctoral Fellowship
Program (Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships;
http://banting.fellowships-bourses.gc.ca/) that is open to both Canadian
and International Applicants. Application involves nomination by
potential host Universities. Fellowships are tenable for 2 years and
valued at $70,000 (Canadian) per year.
The Cryospheric Sciences Group at the University of Alberta is keen to
attract applicants to this program in the areas of Glaciology (Drs
Martin Sharp and Jeffrey Kavanaugh), Sea Ice Science (Dr Christian
Haas), Permafrost Science (Dr Duane Froese), and Microbiology of the
Cryosphere (Dr Brian Lanoil) - or in areas of overlap between these
different specialisations. The University of Alberta has an internal
deadline of 12 September for initial screening of potential applicants.
We therefore encourage potential applicants to contact us to discuss
opportunities no later than September 2, 2011. Initial enquiries
(indicating the candidate's area of expertise and research interests)
should be sent to Dr Martin Sharp (martin.sharp at ualberta.ca), who will
direct them to the most suitable supervisor(s).

2. Postdoctoral Scholar in Global Hydrological Modeling & Drought
Monitoring

Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering
Position: Postdoctoral Scholar
Salary: Based on years of experience at 100%
Start Date: Dec. 2011 / Jan. 2012
Application Deadline: Open until filled
Date of Announcement: 8/22/2011

The Hydroclimate Research Group at the Department of Civil &
Environmental Engineering, University of California, Irvine invites
applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar position beginning Dec.
2011/Jan. 2012.

The successful candidate will be responsible for development of a
multi-layer satellite-based global hydrological model. The objective is
to develop a multi-purpose model for both flood forecasting and drought
monitoring. The position requires research experience in hydrological
modeling and remote sensing, background in statistics, as well as good
written and oral communication skills. The candidate will be responsible
for writing reports, research papers, and grant proposals.

This position requires a Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering, Statistics,
Applied Mathematics, Earth System Science or a closely related field,
and expertise in data processing, and computer programing. Prior
research experience in drought monitoring and indices would be an
advantage.
The initial appointment is for 12 months, renewable subject to
performance and availability of adequate funding.

Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, publications, and contact
information for three references to Professor Amir AghaKouchak in care
of:
Lorrie Aguirre
Department Manager
Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering
University of California, Irvine
E4130 Engineering Gateway
Irvine, CA 92697-2175
Alternatively, application materials may be submitted electronically to
lorrie.a at uci.edu . 
The University of California, Irvine is an equal opportunity employer
committed to excellence through diversity. 


3. Postdoctoral Scholar in Hydroclimate Extremes

Position: Postdoctoral Scholar
Salary: Based on years of experience at 100%
Start Date: Oct/Nov 2011
Application Deadline: Open until filled
Date of Announcement: 7/26/2011

The Hydroclimate Research Group at the Department of Civil &
Environmental Engineering, University of California, Irvine invites
applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar position beginning Oct/Nov 1,
2011.

The fellowship emphasizes research training in extreme value analysis
and uncertainty quantification of climate data sets (ground-based,
remote sensing, and model-based), and modeling nonstationary behavior of
climate variables. The position requires strong quantitative research
experience, solid background in statistics, hydrology/meteorology, as
well as good written and oral communication skills. The candidate will
be responsible for writing reports, research papers, and grant
proposals.

This position requires a Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering, Statistics,
Applied Mathematics, Earth System Science or a closely related field,
and expertise in data processing, and computer programing. Prior
research experience in hydrologic modeling and/or drought monitoring
would be an advantage.
The initial appointment is for 12 months, renewable subject to
performance and availability of adequate funding.
