Graduate Student Positions

Fully-Funded M.Sc., M.A., Ph.D. and Post-Doctoral Positions: Genomic Network for Fish Identification, Stress and Health

Join a revolution in freshwater fish conservation!

Our Canada-wide, multi-million-dollar program will be a game-changer for freshwater fish management and conservation. We are looking for science and social science graduate students to: • Get in on the ground floor in the rapidly growing area of environmental DNA research;  • Be part of the largest aquatic eDNA experiment ever undertaken; • Develop the first universal transcriptional array for freshwater fish; • Be among the first to explore the potential ethical and legal challenges in aquatic genomics based research.

Develop a professional network working side-by-side with our partners from academia, industry and government while you work in a state-of-the-art lab or do fieldwork in the most remote areas of Canada…or both!

Opportunities are available for positions in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick starting in 2020 to 2024. Canadian citizens and landed immigrants will be given first consideration.

GEN-FISH is a collaborative research project established by the University of Windsor and partners and funded by Genome Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

Fully Funded Ph.D. Position Molecular Microbial Ecology

Posted Feb. 4, 2019

The Heath Research Group at the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER), University of Windsor is seeking a Ph.D. student to lead a project investigating the microbial communities associated with sediment-water nutrient flux processes. We specifically want to target gene transcription profiles associated with nutrient flux variation across multiple environmental stressors and develop early warning indicators of nutrient flux based on multigene transcriptional profiles. The student would thus be trained in fieldwork, microbial genomics and transcriptomics and advanced bioinformatics. The student will work closely with Industry partners, the Essex Region Conversation Authority and Government laboratories (Environment and Climate Change Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada). GLIER is an internationally recognized interdisciplinary research institute with advanced genomics and microbial infrastructure situated on the shores of the Detroit River.

Requirements: Experience in any of Microbiology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences and Computer Science, with an interest in microbial ecology and evolution. Experience in bioinformatics (especially metagenomics and metatranscriptomics), mathematical modeling and/or molecular biology are strong assets but not absolute requirements. Canadian citizens and landed immigrants will be given first consideration. The most important qualifications are strong motivation to learn new things and solve problems and willingness to participate in research expeditions and to pursue research in an interdisciplinary framework.  

To apply, please send an email (Subject: Ph.D. student Molecular Microbial Ecology) to Dr. Daniel Heath ( dheath@uwindsor.ca) and Dr. Subba Rao Chaganti ( chaganti@uwindsor.ca) with a cover letter describing previous research experience and interests, a C.V., and contact information for two to three references.

Application deadline: open until filled

Start date: ASAP

Location: Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research, University of Windsor, Windsor, ON, Canada
