New Opportunities


Two Canada Research Chairs (Tier 2) in Oil  Spill Science and in Sea Ice Modelling (posted January 31, 2018)

We invite applications for two Canada Research Chairs (Tier 2): one in oil spill science and one in sea ice modelling.


Master's Student - Archaeological Anthropology (posted May 26, 2017)

We are seeking a highly motivated Master's student with exceptional academic standing and practical lab experience to conduct zooarchaeological analyses on faunal collections from Dorset and Thule Inuit sites located on Southampton Island, NU.


M.Sc. Student - Arctic Primary Production (posted May 26, 2017)

We are seeking a motivated student for a M.Sc. thesis project starting January 2018 to study physical and biological processes controlling primary production in a dynamic region of the Canadian Arctic.


Ph.D. or Masters Student - Remediation Techniques for Oil Spills in Cold and/or Ice-dominated Waters (posted Oct. 17, 2016)

We are seeking a highly motivated Masters or Doctoral candidate with strong academic experience in engineering and/or environmental engineering and/or organic chemistry to test and develop techniques for remediation of oil spills (crude oils, fuel oils) in cold waters where sea ice may be present.


Ph.D. or Masters Student - Arctic Marine Cryospheric Chemistry (posted Sept. 28, 2016)

We are seeking highly motivated graduate students (Ph.D. or M.Sc.) with exceptional academic standing to examine freezing-temperature chemical ("cryoreactions") and biogeochemical processes of contaminants (e.g., mercury, oil) and carbon across the Arctic sea ice environment.


Postdoctoral Fellow - Petroleomics (posted Aug. 11, 2016)

We are seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellow (PDF) (up to a four-year term) with exceptional academic standing to study how sea ice dynamic and thermodynamic processes create microbial habitats and whether resident microbial communities can catalyze natural attenuation or nutrient-stimulated bioremediation in the event of an oil spill in ice-infested waters.
