MSc Opportunity: Water Quality Research

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Applications are invited for an MSc studentship specializing in the subject area of hydrological and/or biogeochemical dynamics in agricultural systems in Manitoba. We are investigating the use of water retention ponds to reduce flooding and nutrient losses from agricultural watersheds to reduce water quality issues in Lake Winnipeg. We are particularly interested in the investigation of the dominant hydrologic and biogeochemical flowpaths for phosphorus losses (surface runoff, tile drainage) during the spring runoff period. This project is a collaboration among the University of Waterloo, University of Manitoba and the Manitoba Conservation Districts Association.

The University of Waterloo is internationally recognized for its research in the field of water with the Water Institute. The Faculty of Environment fosters strong interdisciplinary research and provides a stimulating environment for research and training. The University and Faculty offer competitive conditions to students who wish to develop innovative approaches in research.

Applicants should send a current CV with a covering letter to:
