9 Postdoctoral Fellowships - Core Modelling and
Forecasting - Global Water Futures

Location: University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
Salary: 45,000 - 60,000 CAD per annum

Global Water Futures (GWF) is a transformative pan-Canadian research programme, led by the University of Saskatchewan (U of S), which aims to place Canada as a global leader in water science for the world's cold regions and to address the strategic needs of the Canadian economy in adapting to change and managing the risks of uncertain water futures, including extreme events. GWF is transdisciplinary, working with a wide range of users and integrating the natural, social, health and engineering sciences to provide disaster warning, improved prediction of climate and water futures, and the decision support tools needed to inform adaptation to change and risk management.

To enhance Canada's capability to deliver transformative water modelling science, the Global Institute for Water Security (GIWS) at U of S invites applications from outstanding candidates for the following 9 postdoctoral fellowship (PDF) positions:

Hydrological & Water Quality Forecasting (5 PDF positions)

  1. Flood Forecasting
  2. Seasonal and Drought Forecasting
  3. Data Assimilation
  4. River Ice Modelling
  5. Water Quality

Climate and Diagnostic Hydrological & Water Quality Modelling (2 PDF positions)
