We are recruiting graduate student applications for an exciting new project
based in the Canadian Rocky Mountains as part of the newly-initiated
Canadian Mountain Network (http://canadianmountainnetwork.ca/). This
specific project will focus on characterizing glacially- derived organic
matter export from glaciers and ice fields in the Canadian Rocky Mountains
and its downstream microbial utilization. The student will conduct summer
field work in Banff and Jasper National Parks as part of a larger
inter-disciplinary team and be based at the University of Alberta under the
co-supervision of Dr. Suzanne Tank (Biological Sciences;
https://www.suzannetank.net/) and Dr. Maya Bhatia (Earth and Atmospheric
Sciences; https://bhatia-lab-ualberta.squarespace.com
<https://bhatia-lab-ualberta.squarespace.com/>  ). The student will attain
expertise in several aspect of biogeochemistry, focusing on bulk and
molecular carbon characterization and microbial community analysis. This is
an exciting opportunity for a motivated student to work within a broad-based
multi-disciplinary group on a novel project with important scientific and
societal significance. Ideal start date would be January 2020.  


Applications at both the MSc and PhD level will be considered. To apply,
please submit a CV, copy of transcripts (unofficial transcripts will be
accepted) and a brief statement of research interest.  Applications can be
sent to either Dr. Bhatia (mbhatia at ualberta.ca <mailto:mbhatia at ualberta.ca>
