M.Sc./Ph.D. Opportunities in Canada's most Northerly National Park - Department of Biological Sciences, University of Alberta

I am looking for highly motivated, creative and intellectual ecology and environmental science students to conduct graduate research on climate change in Quttinirpaaq National Park (QNP) on northern Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada. My research program focuses on how accelerated climate change in polar regions is altering terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem productivity, greenhouse gas (CO2, CH4, N2O) emissions from landscapes, water quality, and contaminant loadings and biomagnification. For 5-7 weeks each summer, we conduct our research out of the new Lake Hazen Polar Field Laboratory and recently upgraded Parks Canada base station in QNP, which is nestled in an Arctic oasis between the Grant Land Mountains and the shores of the largest lake north of the Arctic Circle. This diverse landscape provides a multitude of unique research opportunities and lifetime experiences!

Interested candidates should contact Dr. Vincent St.Louis at


University of Calgary - Postdoctoral Fellowship - Arctic Marine Carbon Cycles and Gas Exchange

The University of Calgary is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to contribute to a research program studying the drivers, mechanisms, and consequences of air-sea CO2 exchange in Arctic seas. Potential research topics include: Eddy covariance measurements of gas exchange over sea ice and ocean surfaces; utilizing pH and pCO2 sensors to monitor Arctic Ocean acidification and biogeochemistry; biogeochemical modeling of the Arctic marine carbon system; and sea ice biogeochemistry.

The position is a two-year fellowship, with a stipend of $50,000/year. Health benefits and relocation costs are included, as well as research and conference travel expenses. The Fellow should hold a PhD in a field related to Geography/Earth Science, awarded in the past 5 years. Experience in micrometeorology, marine chemistry, or biogeochemical modelling is required, as well as a strong research record reflected by publications in international journals.
