Scholarship Opportunities

The CERC will provide many scholarships to conduct graduate studies under the supervision of the professors associated with the program. The CERC team also provides support for candidates applying for high profile programs such as NSERC's Vanier and Banting scholarships. For more information about about the opportunities available, please contact Debra Christiansen-Stowe.

Research projects currently being funded include:

  • 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.
