The ecology of macrophyte beds : uncovering the role of lake ice

The Department of Environmental Sciences at Université du Québec a Trois-Rivières (UQTR, Quebec, Canada) is seeking a candidate for a funded project to study the interactions between lake ice cover and submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV). The candidate will work within an interdisciplinary team composed of ecologists, environmental geographers, experts in remote sensing and social scientists aiming at understanding the factors shaping the beds of SAV in Lake Saint-Pierre and their relationships with flooding risks and ice cover.

We seek a candidate at the interface between aquatic ecology and environmental geography with skills in remote-sensing and geomatics. The candidate will derive maps of ice cover and ice type phenology in the lake St-Pierre region in southern Quebec, and analyze its relationships with remotely-sensed and in situ SAV observations.

Based on the applications received, the fellowship could be offered a Doctoral scholarship of 21000$ /yr for 4 yrs or a Post-doctoral stipend of 41000$ / yr, renewable. Interested candidates should send their CV together with the contact information of two reference persons to Prof. Andrea Bertolo (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and Christophe Kinnard (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). The call is open until the position is filled: the candidate will begin as soon as possible.
