Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship position in Arctic Hydrology
The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship is the most prestigious fellowship in
Canada. Funded by the Government of Canada, these fellowships provide
funding to the very best postdoctoral applicants, both nationally and
internationally at a level of $70,000 per year for two years. This
Fellowship requires a synergy between the applicant and the host
institution, with the applicant completing their application in full
collaboration with the proposed host institution. The proposed research must
be aligned with the host institutions strategic priorities. Further
information is available at: banting.fellowships-bourses.gc.ca/. Northern
environmental research is a strategic priority of Wilfrid Laurier University
(Laurier), with Laurier and the Government of the Northwest Territories
signing a 10-year (2010-2020) Partnership Agreement. The goal of this
Partnership is to expand the Territories capacity to conduct environmental
research and to train the new expertise needed to manage the natural
resources of the NWT for future generations, and to ensure the
sustainability of northern water systems.
In support of the Partnership, Dr. Marsh, Canada Research Chair in Cold
Regions Water Science, is developing a research program that is focussed on
the changing hydrology of Arctic Canada, with specific interests in
understanding the complex interactions between climate, vegetation,
permafrost, snow and runoff. This program includes both field observations
at long term observatories in the Western Canadian Arctic, analysis of past
hydrologic records, and high resolution modelling.
To further develop this research program, Dr. Philip Marsh invites potential
Banting Fellowship applicants to submit a letter of interest by August 5 to
the email address below. Details of the application processes at Laurier is
described at <http://www.wlu.ca/page.php?grp_id=36&p=24457>
To be considered, please send (no later than August 5) a letter of
introduction, CV, names of three references, and a ½ to 1 page statement of
research interest to: Philip Marsh, Canada Research Chair, Cold Regions
Research Centre, Wilfrid Laurier University.
