MESc Student opportunity in Precambrian Shield Hydrology – Spring or Fall 2021

The Watershed Hydrology lab at Nipissing University is seeking to hire 1 Masters-level student to begin in Spring or Fall 2021.

Our research group focuses on watershed hydrology and in-lake processes in Precambrian Shield watersheds with application to regional study of water quality and quantity. Our group is part of the Department of Geography, with strengths in Geomatics, Remote Sensing, Hydrology and Environmental Management, and the interdisciplinary Masters of Environmental Studies/Masters of Environmental Sciences program.

We currently have funding for a Masters-level student as part of a project investigating impacts of climate change on groundwater-surface water interactions in an agricultural watershed in the Sudbury region, in northeastern Ontario, Canada. We are looking for a student with a strong background in hydrology and/or sciences and engineering with a specific interest in the physical and biogeochemical connections between terrestrial and aquatic environments. Experience with programming in R is also an asset.

Interested students please contact me, April James (aprilj@nipissingu.ca) and include a CV and a statement of interest. We are committed to supporting an equitable, diverse and inclusive research and teaching environment and encourage applications from members of under-represented groups.  Information on current and past research group activities can be found at: https://faculty.nipissingu.ca/aprilj/
