Postdoc Opportunities in Climate at UVic

We are seeking two engaged, enthusiastic individuals for postdoctoral research positions investigating the fate of Canada’s coastal oceans over the next century. The postdocs will work collaboratively to (1) produce regional ocean models of Canada’s coastlines (using ROMS and CICE), and (2) assess how these coastal oceans will respond to a warming climate by subjecting this regional ocean model to downscaled global climate model projections (using WRF).

Kluxen: Ravel and Haydn

A platinum performance awaits in a concert with Parisian ties. Ravel's Tombeau pays tribute to both the Baroque, and to fallen comrades of WWI. Ravel was in the audience at the Salle Gaveau whenNielsen's neo-classical concerto was premiered in 1926. Principal flutist Arin Sarkissian also polishes up some avant-garde Varèse. We close in the classical era with one of Haydn's six "Paris"symphonies, No. 85, which earned its nickname as a favourite of Marie Antoinette, the pre-revolutionary Queen of France.
