Graduate studies in applied limnology
The Global Institute for Water Security is seeking one or more graduate students (MES
or PhD) interested in applied limnology. The successful student will work with Dr. Helen
Baulch (http://homepage.usask.ca/~hmb925/) on research opportunities ranging from
understanding the effects of climate change on lake ecosystems to characterizing
agricultural effects on water quality (and assessing mitigation options), to understanding
bloom dynamics in eutrophic lakes.
Limnological facilities within GIWS include a series of high frequency sensor systems
(nutrients, chemistry metabolism, algal sensors) suited for use in lakes or rivers, and a
growing aquatic chemistry lab with facilities for greenhouse gas analyses, membraneinlet mass spectrometry, water chemistry, and access to microscopy, and stable isotope
facilities.
The successful student will have a lab and outdoor experience, or, strong quantitative
skills. Experience in limnology is preferred, but not required.
Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Dr. Baulch with a copy of their CV,
resume and a cover letter at [email protected] Formal applications can then be
submitted to the School of Environment and Sustainability. Applications will be
reviewed until the position is filled, but early applications will be favored.
