Research Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellowship

As part of a research partnership established between Rio Tinto and four universities (Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique, École de Technologie Supérieure, University of British Columbia, and University of Victoria/Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium), a two-year postdoctoral fellowship examining the hydrothermal impacts of water release on fish of the Nechako River is being offered. The successful applicant will work with hydrologists and climate modellers in collating several hydrothermal model scenarios, and with fish biologists/physiologists to obtain species and life stage specific thermal tolerance criteria. The ultimate goal will be to develop quantitative spatial models exploring how species- and life-stage thermal habitat will be affected by water release and climate change scenarios.

The project is managed at Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS, Québec City). However, the postdoctoral fellow could be located in Québec City, Montreal, Vancouver or Victoria. Some travelling for relatively short periods (less than three weeks) may be required. Initially, teleworking might have to be performed until public health restrictions are lifted. To apply, please send a CV with a cover letter and two recent publications to André St-Hilaire: andre.st-hilaire@ete.inrs.ca.
