New Graduate Student Positions

in Arctic Marine Cryospheric Chemistry


Available Immediately!


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 requirements.









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).
