Global Water Futures (GWF): Solutions to Water Threats in an Era of Global Change is a collaborative initiative between multiple Canadian universities and partner organizations funded, in part, through the Canada First Research Excellence Fund.

The program (GWF) aims to deliver risk management solutions for water resources and services – informed by leading edge water science and supported by innovative decision-making tools – in Canada and throughout the cold regions of the world. Key research areas include predicting change in Cold Regions, developing Big Water data and support systems, and designing user solutions that focus on real world problems.

University of Waterloo researchers are looking to hire scientists and specialists as part of the latest projects funded by GWF. All positions are headquartered in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
