Post-Doctoral Fellow, Arctic hydrology Department of Geography Queen’s University

Melissa Lafreniere

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in Arctic Hydrology in the Department of Geography at Queen’s University.   The position is available for two years beginning September 2011.  The successful candidate will work with a research team investigating the landscape controls over permafrost disturbance and the impact of disturbances on vegetation and water quality in the Canadian High Arctic.

The primary responsibility of the research fellow will be to oversee the modeling of the hydrological and hydrochemical response of watersheds to climate change scenarios. The fellow may also be expected to participate in the field operations. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field, experience using hydrological models, and research experience in polar, alpine or similar field setting. 

Applications should be emailed to Dr. Melissa Lafrenière, Department of Geography, Queen’s University, [hidden email].  Applications should include a cover letter including a statement of current and prospective research interests, curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of at least three references. We will begin reviewing applications May 15th, 2011.

In keeping with Queen's commitment to employment equity and diversity in the workplace, we particularly welcome applications from women, visible minorities, aboriginal people, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.
