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).

THE OUTFIT

Mark Rylance—as Leonard Burling, a skilled but humble English tailor—is adept at actorly sleight of hand, gradually revealing his character's secrets in slivers of dry, wicked wit. It's 1956Chicago, where Leonard runs his shop, making fine suits for a clientele heavy on high-ranking gangsters. Though Leonard allows his workspace to be used as a sort of message center for the mob, hekeeps his head down and his nose clean. Rylance fills the space with subtle grandeur. Every movement, every breath, is made to measure. –Time Magazine
