We're seeking a qualified candidate to further our research in the area of mercury cycling within estuarine and marine environments of the sub-Arctic Hudson Bay. The successful candidate will join a recently funded project whose overarching objective is to characterize the effects of varying river discharge on mercury cycling within Hudson Bay. The research will involve both laboratory and field work, including research cruises onboard the icebreaker CCGS Amundsen.

Applicants should have a strong background in the areas of environmental chemistry, analytical chemistry, geochemistry, biogeochemistry, or oceanography. Special consideration will be given to those candidates with field experience.

The successful candidate will be working at the Centre for Earth Observation Science (CEOS) of the University of Manitoba. 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 including the Ultra-Clean Trace Elements Laboratory (UCTEL), Sea-ice- Environmental Research Facility (SERF), and the soon-to-be-constructed Churchill Marine Observatory (CMO). CEOS is a founding member of the new international Arctic Science Partnership (ASP).
