We are seeking a PhD or MSc student to work on the characterization of seasonal and inter-annual patterns in freshwater in Hudson Bay, Canada. The successful candidate will join a recently funded four year project, BaySys, whose overarching goal is to provide a scientific basis to separate the relative effects of climate change from those of hydroelectric regulation of freshwater on changing physical, biological and biogeochemical conditions in Hudson Bay. The goal of the MSc/PhD project is to use field observations and various satellite-derived freshwater proxies to improve our understanding of the distribution of freshwater in Hudson Bay. The research will involve participation in fieldwork that will include observations onboard the icebreaker CCGS Amundsen and at coastal locations.

The successful candidate will be based at the Centre for Earth Observation Science (CEOS) University of Manitoba, with regular visits to University of Québec at Rimouski (UQAR). Housed within the Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment Earth and Resources, CEOS is home to 15 full time faculty, and approximately 70 other students and staff devoted to the study of Arctic marine science. The Centre is located in the newly developed Nellie Cournoyea Arctic Research Facility. Graduate students have access to state-of-the-art field and laboratory facilities. CEOS is a founding member of the new international Arctic Science Partnership (ASP).
