Call for Students

I am seeking one PhD student with interests in Quaternary science, paleoclimatology and paleoecology to further develop our group’s investigations of sub-till organic deposits of Pleistocene age in Northern Ontario and Northern Manitoba. These deposits provide important archives of Pleistocene interglacial and interstadial environments and we are using them to better understand ice sheet dynamics, climate forcing, peatland dynamics and carbon cycling through the Quaternary ice ages. Applicants must have an MSc in Quaternary science (or related discipline) with expertise in geochronology, Quaternary stratigraphy, Quaternary paleoclimate, and/or proxy-based reconstructions using pollen or other microfossils. The incumbent must also be comfortable with field work in remote regions, lab work for sediment processing, and be willing to learn skills for quantitative analyses of resulting datasets using multivariate and spatial statistics.

Call for Students

Prof. Wells is seeking a Masters student for a project on the physical limnology of Lake Simcoe. The project will investigate the dissolved oxygen dynamics in waters of Lake Simcoe, specifically how physical mixing processes determine the levels of dissolved oxygen that are important for viable fish habitats. As the project will involve significant analysis of new field data, the student should ideally have a strong quantitive background and knowledge of limnology or oceanography.
