9 Postdoctoral Positions Core Modelling & Forecasting Team, Canada

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 and University of Waterloo invites applications from outstanding candidates for the following 15 postdoctoral fellowship (PDF) positions listed below:
