  Postdoctoral Fellow/Research Associate Position

in Cryo-reactions and Arctic Marine Cryospheric Chemistry



We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate with exceptional academic standing to examine freezing-temperature chemical reactions (“cryo-reactions”) and Arctic marine cryospheric chemistry. The research will involve both laboratory and field work, including mesocosm-scale studies at the nationally and internationally unique Sea-ice Environmental Research Facility (SERF) and the soon-to-be operational Churchill Marine Observatory (CMO), and research cruises onboard the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen. 


Applicants should have a strong background in the areas of environmental chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, (bio)geochemistry, and/or chemical oceanography. Special consideration will be given to those candidates with field experience in the Arctic and with sea ice.


Applications should be emailed to Dr. Feiyue Wang. Please include in your application a CV, transcripts, a short statement of relevant research experience and interests, and the contact information for two referees.






Graduate and undergraduate positions

are also available on:



-       Biogeochemistry of mercury


-       Cryo-reactions and Arctic marine cryospheric chemistry


-       Chemical speciation and transport modeling in the cryosphere


Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Feiyue Wang prior to submitting the application.





The successful candidate will be working at the Centre for Earth Observation Science (CEOS) of the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada. Housed within the Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth and Resources, CEOS is a focal point of Arctic System Science and Climate Change, which is a ‘Signature Area’ of research at the University of Manitoba. With more than 125 researchers, students and staff, CEOS is one of the most influential Arctic research groups in the world. CEOS’ research is supported by a purpose-built Nellie Cournoyea Arctic Research Facility; laboratories for Earth, environmental and material sciences, and applied electromagnetics; Sea-ice Environmental Research Facility; CMO; CCGS Amundsen icebreaker; and numerous field stations across the Arctic. The Arctic Science Partnership (ASP) between CEOS, the Arctic Research Centre at Aarhus University (Denmark), and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources provides added opportunity for networking.
