Professional master's student project with an internship at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland)

Laval University and Lausanne University (Switzerland)

The objective of the student's work is to collect data / information accessible through the digital tool on contaminants in Nunavik and their analysis. The term contamination is understood in the broad sense, as "a foreign body of an anthropogenic (development, culture, pollution, etc.) or environmental (climate, animal or plant species, virology, chemical compound, etc.) nature which is introduced or which fits into the existing socio-environmental system ”.

Monitoring the seasonal dynamics of the Arctic snowpack

Centre d'applications et de recherches en télédétection
Université de Sherbrooke


Several recent studies have shown that climate warming in northern regions, which is twice as important in high northern latitudes than elsewhere in the world, could accelerate. Snow is a key parameter in the surface energy balance of northern regions (high albedo, thermal insulation, high latent heat flux), as well as in the water balance (water reserve). Its knowledge (physical properties of the snow cover, spatial and temporal dynamics) in relation to climate variability is necessary to better understand the interaction processes involved: effects of global warming, feedback effects of snowmelt on climate and effects on the ground heat balance and permafrost.

This project will involve theoretical development (understanding of interaction processes), modeling of snow cover evolution (Crocus Météo-France) and experimental field work in the Arctic, notably in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. These 3 elements will be carried out in the continuity of the current projects.

Funding assured for one year (in the form of a postdoctoral fellowship).


Requirements: PhD in environmental geophysics or equivalent, less than 5 years old, with a good math-physics background, Phyton knowledge, hardworking and motivated, team player (collaborations with Environment Canada), loving the outdoors, snow and not afraid by extreme temperature!

Bilingualism required French-English.
