PhD Student - The effects of glyphosate-based herbicide on the populations and physiology of mammals in a forest food web

Grad Student
6 May 2024
Location: Prince George, BC, CanadaStart date: September 2024Duration: 3-4 years Opportunity description: Glyphosate-based herbicides (GBHs) are applied extensively throughout Canada by several industrial sectors to promote the growth of commercial crop species, to protect infrastructure, and to maintain sight lines. Recent evidence from laboratory studies has identified links between the ingestion of GBHs and adverse health effects in mammals, including anxiety-like behavior, gut inflammation, and changes to metabolic responses. Despite potential health effects, little is known about the effects of widespread glyphosate application on the health, physiology, and population abundance of free-roaming mammals. Accordingly, this PhD position aims to better...

PhD Position in Forest Growth Projection and Sampling, University of British Columbia

Grad Student
5 March 2024
For many forests of the world, growth models and growth data are vital to plan adaptation strategies under climate change. In reality, both are limited to certain tree species, ecosystem types, and geographical regions. Thus, there is an immediate need to extend the coverage of growth models and data. To do so, we need a projection system that can easily calibrate existing growth models in real-time with incoming growth data from forest ecosystems without a model. Moreover, we also need a cost-effective and efficient inventory system for monitoring forest growth that can be deployed over large areas in such forest...

Postglacial migration of sugar maple: joint analysis of paleoecological and genomic dataSummary. Climate change, whether historical or contemporary, rearranges biodiversity patterns at all hierarchical levels, from gene to biome. Postglacial migration represents one of the key responses of species to the last global climate warming associated with a transition from the glacial maximum to the current interglacial. Similarly, species are expected to extend their range to higher latitudes as a response to contemporary global changes. However, the velocity of modern-day global warming might outpace the speed of tree migration, with potentially deleterious consequences for forest ecosystems. In northeastern North America,...

La migration postglaciaire représente une des principales réponses des espèces face au dernier réchauffement climatique global associé au passage du maximum glaciaire vers le présent interglaciaire. De manière analogue, les espèces devraient étendre leur aire de répartition vers de plus hautes latitudes sous l’influence des changements globaux contemporains.

MSc position at Carleton University monitoring seabirds using acoustics

Grad Student
15 February 2024
Many populations of albatrosses and petrels have declined dramatically, primarily due to bycatch in commercial fisheries or predation at nesting sites by invasive species. Understanding the outcomes of management actions, for example eradication of invasive species or bycatch mitigation, is challenging because most petrels are nocturnal at colonies and nest in burrows or crevices. However, advances in passive acoustic recording could offer the opportunity for cost-effective long-term population monitoring even at remote archipelagos. We are looking for a MSc student to join a team of scientists at Carleton University for a project in collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey. The...

Graduate student (PhD) position in adaptive silviculture

Grad Student
8 February 2024
Assisted Migration of Forest Trees (TransX project) Project description: Most trees in Canada are at risk from climate warming, which requires the development of strategies to increase the adaptive capacity of forests. Here, we propose to develop new operational knowledge that can inform forest-assisted migration, a key component of climate-smart forest interventions. This new research will leverage the TransX legacy trial established under the Silva21 research initiative, which aims to test empirically the assisted migration of multiple key coniferous and broadleaf tree species, in order to improve the stand establishment phase and ensure the maintenance of healthy, vibrant forest stands...

MSc position at Carleton University working to minimize the spread of HPAI

Grad Student
5 February 2024
A Eurasian strain of H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) emerged in North America in December 2021. This strain of HPAI is highly infectious and often fatal in domestic poultry and can also cause mortality in wild birds and mammals. The virus infected numerous commercial flocks in 2022 and 2023 with high risk periods for commercial flocks occurring during the spring and fall coinciding with wild bird migration periods. During these outbreaks, it became clear that more work was needed to understand wildlife and domestic poultry interactions and the internal commercial interactions leading to these HPAI infected premises. We are...

Stoichiometric landscapes and biodiversity in macrophyte beds - PhD project (Fall 2024 at the latest)

Grad Student
23 January 2024
The Canada Research Chair in Cross-Ecosystem Linkages (CREE) is looking to recruit a Phd student for a project focusing on the study of the spatial distribution of nutrients in the aquatic meadows of the St. Lawrence River. The spatial distribution of nutrients is the result of the interaction between passive abiotic flows and active biotic transport.
