Within a project funded through the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Nature et technologies (FRQNT), the project aims at developing habitat quality indexes linked to snow conditions. The project builds on recent progress in arctic snow modeling and linkages between snow properties and caribou population.

The student will first use an existing snow modeling platform, and evaluate changing snow conditions impacts on caribou population. Habitat quality indexes will the be developed within a geographic information system to track changes in arctic snow conditions using modeling and remote sensing, a mandate from the Groupe de Recherche Interdisciplinaire sur le Milieux Polaires (GRIMP) from the Université de Sherbrooke. The remote sensing work will consist on tracking rain-on-snow events and ice layers using microwave remote sensing. The student will also need to migrate the platform on the university supercomputer.

Training in physics, ecology and GIS-remote sensing, experience in coding (Matlab, Python or equivalent), interest in polar environments, the environment and climate change, fieldwork skills and teamwork.

-       The student will be provided with office and computer in our research lab
-       A scholarship will be provided for three years.
-       Project begins : September 2017
