The Departments of Earth Sciences and Oceanography at Dalhousie University seek candidates for multiple, fully funded MSc and PhD projects on long-term climate impacts to the marine environment and fisheries ecology of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. Potential projects include late Holocene paleoceanographic reconstructions of temperature, nutrient cycling and fish abundance, and predictive climate-biogeochemical-ecosystem modeling. 

These positions leverage significant investments in ocean science at Dalhousie through the recently established Ocean Frontier Institute. Students will have access to state-of-the-art analytical laboratories and high-performance computing, opportunities to participate in research cruises to the Northwest Atlantic, and exposure to internationally recognized expertise in marine science. Projects will have a significant outreach, education and advocacy component through interaction with government and NGO end-users. 

Prospective candidates should have completed an undergraduate degree (for MSc candidates) or masters degree or equivalent (for PhD candidates) with a minimum “A minus” average (GPA of 3.7 on a 4.3 scale). 

To apply, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae and academic transcripts to any of the following prospective supervisors:

Dr. Markus Kienast; Paleoceanography; markus.kienast@dal.ca; https://oceanbiogeochem-atdal.org

Dr. Owen Sherwood; Isotope Biogeochemistry; owen.sherwood@dal.ca; https://tinyurl.com/Sherwood-Lab

Dr. Katja Fennel; Modeling;katja.fennel@dal.ca; http://memg.ocean.dal.ca/

*Please note that Drs. Fennel and Sherwood will be at the AGU meeting in Washington DC.  Dr. Fennel will be available for meetings on Dec 10-11; Dr. Sherwood will be available on Dec 11-13. Please contact by email to arrange a meeting.
