A MSc position is available in the intensive silviculture lab at the University
of Quebec in Abitibi-Temiscamingue (www.uqat.ca), Quebec, beginning January
Working within the Forest Research Institute, the student will use an
experimental design in the field to study the influence of soil temperature on
growth and root development of white spruce (Picea glauca) and black spruce
(Picea mariana). The latter is known for better tolerating cold and wet soils.
A scholarship over two years is available. I seek students who are curious,
passionate about trees, forest ecology and tree biology, have good academic
records and can understand at least a bit of French. Preference will be given
to students with prior research experience and good writing skills.
Interested candidates should apply by email
(annie.desroch...@uqat.ca<mailto:annie.desroch...@uqat.ca>) and send: 1) a
motivation letter describing their educational background and research
experience, research interests, and educational and career goals, 2) a
CV/resume, and 3) the names of three references by October 3rd, 2016.
