Graduate Fellowship Description
M.Sc. (Hydrological Modeling) - Climate and future hydrological regimes for the Saint John River.
Working with the modeling team (hydrological/hydraulic/thermal models and paired with downscaled climate information), the M.Sc. Candidate will model trends for the hydrological and thermal regimes predicted for the SJR for different climate scenarios.
Different approaches to downscaling climate data will be explored, for example, Statistical Downscaling Model, using modelled climate data available through the Canadian Climate Change Scenarios Network (www.cccsn.ec.gc.ca).
This work will set the hydrological foundation for developing appropriate environment flow regimes for the SJR. [Supervisors Dr. Wendy Monk, UNB Fredericton and Dr. Andre St-Hilaire, INRS Quebec City]
Prospective candidates should email a cover letter, CV, unofficial university transcripts and contact information for three people who can serve as references. The cover letter must clearly indicate the project being applied for, and outline how the candidate’s previous experience has prepared him/her to function as a leader of the respective MAES study component, and what specific qualifications the candidate will bring to the large, multidisciplinary MAES Team.
Review of applicants for the projects starting in summer 2014 will begin 21 February 2014 and continue until the positions are filled. Ideal start date for 2014 projects is in March/April. For positions starting 2015, applications can be provided until fall of 2014.
Send complete application packages to Project Manager Gordon Yamazaki by email ([email protected]).
This research is led by The Canadian Rivers Institute (CRI) which was founded in 2000 as a collaboration of researchers at the University of New Brunswick.
