Current opportunities for graduate and post-doctoral studies
There are lots of opportunities for graduate students and post-doctoral research fellows to work on within my research program. The Department of Geography offers both a M.Sc. and a Ph.D. in physical geography. The program has developed specializations in climate and global change and ecosystem biogeochemistry and hydrology. In addition to the programs in Geography there are a number of allied programs in Atmosphere and Ocean Sciences and the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences on the Macdonald Campus of McGill University. McGill University is also home to a number of interdisciplinary research centres such as the Global Environment and Climate Change Centre (GEC3). GEC3 greatly enhances the graduate experience by exposing students to a much broader range of ideas and fields than would normally occur in a disciplinary base program.
For information on the graduate program in the Department of Geography please see: Graduate Information(http://www.geog.mcgill.ca/graduate.html)
Graduate students in our program normally receive between $16,000 to $19,000 per year of support from a combination of research and teaching assistantships, stipends and external and internal scholarships. In addition to Departmental support and support directly from supervisors there are a number of funding opportunities for graduate students through the Faculty of Graduate Studies. For new students applying to McGill University the Tomlinson Graduate Fellowships(http://ww2.mcgill.ca/gps/fellowships/tomlinson/index.htm) are particularly attractive but one has to apply early. We encourage prospective students who have a good GPA to pursue NSERC and FCAR post-graduate scholarships.
If you are interested in any of the research outlined above or other aspects of the links among hydrology, climate, biogeochemistry and ecosystems do not hesitate to contact me. I recommend you contact me early in the fall semester. For prospective students who are located in north eastern North America I encourage to come and visit. During a visit we can discuss your ambitions and expectations regarding graduate studies and you can meet other members of the department and C2GCR where appropriate, but more importantly you can meet some of current graduate students, who can give you the inside view on our program. I have listed below some of my former and current present graduate students. For some of my past students I have included a link to their home page when I know it and for my current students can contact them directly via e-mail via the graduate student page(http://www.geog.mcgill.ca/currentgrads.html) on the Department of Geography website.
