We are recruiting for a 4-year PhD student position in Arctic marine habitat mapping, to focus on sensitivity, disturbance, and recovery of Arctic fiord biota. The primary study region is southern and eastern Baffin Island, from Iqaluit to Clyde River. The project will combine analysis of multibeam sonar bathymetry and backscatter with in situ sampling of bottom type and biota, and retrospective analysis of long-term datasets. Students with previous experience in Arctic marine biology and/or marine geomatics or remote sensing are preferred. Student could begin as early as Sept. 2012.
