Graduate Fellowship Description
M.Sc. (Fluvial Geomorphology/Ecohydrology) - Final river setting following a dam removal. Predicting the final setting of the river in the dam removal scenario informs the ecosystem studies because the new river includes habitats that can be defined by predicted flows and depths, sediment transport and deposition, and barriers.
The M.Sc. Candidate will predict these physical characteristics of the new river using a channel evolution model approach based on existing dam removal projects (Elwha River -) and modeling experiments. Once channel placement and forms are predicted, the Candidate will use knowledge from the whole ecosystem study and literature to predict the habitats and barriers for fishes in a new river. [Supervisors Dr. Wendy Monk and Dr. Allen Curry, UNB Fredericton]
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]).
