Graduate Student Opportunities
Department of Geography
Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario
 
 
The Department of Geography at Queen’s University has opportunities for Ph.D. and M.Sc. research projects investigating the landscape controls over permafrost disturbance and the impact of disturbances on vegetation and water quality across physiographic gradients in the Canadian High Arctic. More specifically, investigators are seeking a M.Sc. student interested in investigating how dissolved ion and nutrient concentrations in stream and soils relate to physiographic features such as soil properties, bedrock, vegetative cover, and the depth of the seasonal active layer. The project is also looking for a Ph.D. candidate to evaluate the sediment transport and water quality variability over a wide spectrum of watershed characteristics and varying degrees of permafrost disturbance extent and age.
 
Qualified students would have a background in environmental earth science, physical geography or geochemistry, an aptitude for field-based research, and a strong academic record.  Applicants should be available to commence fieldwork in May 2011, and begin their graduate program in September 2011. Successful applicants would be funded by through a combination of scholarships, teaching assistantships, and research assistantships. Interested individuals should contact Dr. Melissa Lafrenière at [hidden email] for more information on the research projects or application procedures.
