MSc Student Position Available in Alberta, Canada
University of Alberta
Since 2012, the Governments of Alberta and Canada have monitored water quality within the oil sands region of Northeastern Alberta. This water quality monitoring includes a network of water quality sondes. These sondes, which record water quality data at 15-minute intervals, are deployed in rivers year-round at key locations upstream and downstream of the largest open-pit mines. This project will make use of these datasets to reveal the water quality impacts of oil sands mining and upgrading operations, and to understand the key physical, chemical, and biological processes operating within these river systems.

The ideal candidate will have a keen interest in one or more of water quality, contaminant transport and fate, geochemistry, and hydrology. The graduate student will be co-supervised by both academic (Dr. Alberto Reyes) and government (Dr. Colin Cooke) scientists to bridge an important gap between environmental monitoring and research in Alberta. There will be opportunities to lead or participate in fieldwork, and experience working in remote environments is therefore desirable. Experience with data manipulation/analysis (R, Matlab, etc.) is an asset.

Interested candidates should contact either Alberto Reyes (areyes@ualberta.ca) or Colin Cooke (cacooke@ualberta.ca) for more information.

The University of Alberta, in Edmonton, is one of Canada’s largest research-intensive universities. The campus is centrally located at the edge of the North Saskatchewan River valley, which hosts North America’s longest stretch of urban parkland. Edmonton is a 3-4 hour drive from the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains in Jasper National Park, with outstanding opportunities for mountain recreation and environmental science.
