Scholarship Opportunities

Over the funding period (2010-2017), the CERC provided scholarships for graduate studies and postdoctorate fellowships under the supervision of the professors associated with the program. The CERC team also provided support for candidates applying for high profile programs such as NSERC's Vanier and Banting scholarships.

Funded research projects included:

  • Remote sensing of ocean colour and optical properties of the Arctic Ocean;
  • Monitoring and ecophysiology of ice-edge phytoplankton blooms in the Arctic Ocean;
  • Physical properties of the snow cover above the permafrost;
  • Transcriptomics, taxonomy and diversity of polar phytoplankton species;
  • Nitrogen processes and nitrogen utilization by planktonic species in the Arctic Ocean;
  • Ecology and population dynamics of zooplankton in the Arctic Ocean.
