We study aquatic ecology in collaboration with diverse partners to inform management and conservation, with a focus on salmon and their watersheds. Our lab is part of the Earth to Oceans Research Group – a group aimed at addressing global environmental issues through an interdisciplinary collaborative science approach.
Watershed cumulative effects, climate change, and salmon: This project will focus on the cumulative effects of climate change and land use on stream temperatures and flow, with application to migratory salmon. The candidate will be responsible for initiating a literature review that synthesizes the state of knowledge about this subject. Support for this position comes from the Ocean and Freshwater Science Contribution Program of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
Candidates should have a background in areas such as multiple stressors, watershed management, ecohydrology, and a strong record of publication. PhD’s will be preferred, but exceptional earlier-career candidates (e.g., post Masters) will be considered with the appropriate skillsets and experience.
Salary will be commensurate with stipend levels of a Postdoc or research scientist. This position is full-time for one year initially, with potential longer-term extension based on performance and funding. Ideal start date is the beginning of September 2019.
