Four PhD positions in Canada: High-latitude land surface-atmosphere interactions and biogeochemistry (positions are open for immediate start, and entry before May 2019 is preferred)

Université de Montréal
(See on PDF according to PhD)

We are looking for four highly motivated individuals for PhD positions focusing on changes in land surface-atmosphere interactions (PhD1 and PhD2), and terrestrial-aquatic linkages (PhD3 and PhD4) in the northwestern Canadian boreal zone where hydrological regimes undergo rapid changes due to permafrost thaw. Funding packages for these four PhD positions include four-year stipends ($21,000/year), and travel and field expenses. Additional sources of funding include university fellowships, tuition remission (international students), and research and teaching assistantships. Total value of funding packages will depend on position and applicant, but will be generous for through external sources (e.g., Natural Sciences and Engineering and Research Council of Canada).

Responsible person: Olivier Sonnentag (oliver.sonnentag@umontreal.ca)
Start date: May 21, 2018
Deadline: July 31, 2018

PhD: Cumulative impact of anthropogenic pressures on Arctic nesting shorebird populations

Chaire de recherche K.-C.-Irving en sciences de l'environnement et développement durable
Moncton University

The research project aims to model the cumulative impact of various anthropogenic pressures (eg the overabundance of snow geese supported by temperate agricultural fields and climate change) on the reproduction and distribution of different species of shorebirds nesting in the Arctic.

Responsible person: Marie-­‐Andrée Giroux (marie-andre.giroux@umoncton.ca)
Start date: September 1, 2018
Deadline: June 29, 2018

PhD : 2 PhD positions with the Sentinel North Research Chair in Aquatic Geochemistry

Sentinelle Nord
Department of Chemistry - Laval University

We invite PhD applications for two positions with the Aquatic Geochemistry Group at Laval University. The students will take part in the Chair's research program focussing on the feedback between current environmental changes and carbon dynamics in lakes and thaw ponds of the northern landscape, and on the repercussions of such changes on the biogeochemical cycles of key elements.

Responsible person: Raoul Couture (raoul.couture@chm.ulaval.ca)
Deadline: July 31, 2018

Master : Impact of climate change and nitrogen depositions on Arctic tundra wetlands (Snow Goose feeding areas, Bylot Island, Nunavut)

Centre d'études nordiques
Laval University and Bylot Island

We are looking for a candidate who is passionate about botany and northern ecology. The student will work in a team of ecologists from Universities Laval and Quebec in Trois-Rivières, under the co-supervision of Line Rochefort and Gilles Gauthier. The work will take place both in the field at an isolated Arctic site where conditions are rigorous (Bylot Island) and in the laboratory. She or he will be based at Laval University and will be a member of the Center for northern studies.
A bursary of $ 17,500 per year (for two years) accompanies this project in addition to faculty supplements to success, but applicants who already have a major scholarship (eg CRSNG, FRQNT) or who will obtain it during the master's will receive other benefits.

Responsible person: Line Rochefort et Gilles Gauthier (line.rochefort@fsaa.ulaval.ca ; gilles.gauthier@bio.ulaval.ca)
Deadline: December 1, 2018
