New Graduate Student Positions
in Arctic Marine Cryospheric Chemistry
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).
