MSc/PhD opportunities in paleoglaciology, paleohydrology and Quaternary environmental change
opportunities in paleoglaciology, paleohydrology and Quaternary
Opportunities: Up to two graduate student

in Fall 2011 at Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada.
Research in the Paleoglaciology Lab (http://www.sfu.ca/paleoglaciology/index.htm)
at Simon Fraser University is aimed at 1) enhancing our
understanding of past
ice sheet dynamics and hydrology in order to better predict the
present day ice sheets, 2) building our knowledge of Quaternary
change in Canada, and 3) applying this knowledge to assist in the
management of Canada's natural resources (e.g., groundwater,
minerals). There are a number of specific research projects
but students are also encouraged to develop their own projects
broader thematic areas of my research program (http://www.sfu.ca/paleoglaciology/research.htm).
Qualifications: Applicants should be highly-motivated,
with a solid background in Quaternary geology/geomorphology and/or
and/or GIS and of excellent academic standing. You
should also have experience in, or a desire to learn,
topographic surveying, digital terrain analysis, aerial photograph
interpretation, shallow geophysical techniques, paleohydrology
geochronology depending on the project. Physical fitness, and
