New Graduate Student Positions
in Arctic Marine Cryospheric
We are seeking highly motivated graduate students (Ph.D. or M.Sc.) with exceptional
academic standing to examine freezing-temperature chemical (“cryoreactions”) and biogeochemical processes of
contaminants (e.g., mercury, oil) and carbon across the Arctic sea ice
environment. The research will involve both laboratory and field work,
including mesocosm-scale studies at the
internationally unique Sea-ice
Environmental Research Facility (SERF) and the soon-to-be operational Churchill Marine
Observatory (CMO), and research cruises aboard the Canadian Research
Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen.
Applicants should have a strong background in the areas of
environmental chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, (bio)geochemistry, or chemical oceanography. Special
consideration will be given to those candidates with experience in
instrumental analytical techniques and/or field studies in the Arctic and
with sea ice.
Pre-applications should be emailed to Dr.
Feiyue Wang. Include in your pre-application
a CV, transcripts, a short statement of relevant research experience and
interests, and the contact information for two referees. For
admission requirement and application procedure, visit the Faculty
of Graduate Studies. Refer to Environment and Geography program
Graduate student positions are also available
on the following topics:
· Biogeochemistry of mercury
Speciation modeling of trace elements
in the cryosphere (computer programming skill is an asset)
Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Feiyue
Wang prior to submitting the application.
PDF and summer student positions are also frequently available with
our group. Please contact Dr. Wang for further information.
The successful candidates will be
working at the Centre for Earth
Observation Science (CEOS) of the University
of Manitoba. Housed within the Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of
Environment Earth and Resources, CEOS is home to 15 full time faculty, and
approximately 70 graduate students, research associates, and other staff
devoted to the study of Arctic marine science. The Centre is located
in the newly developed Nellie Cournoyea Arctic
Research Facility. Graduate students have access to state-of-the-art
field and laboratory facilities including the Ultra-Clean Trace Elements
Laboratory (UCTEL), SERF,
CMO, and the
Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS
Amundsen. CEOS is a founding member of the international Arctic Science Partnership (ASP).
