A list of current graduate and post-graduate research opportunities, listed by title

Arctic research: Trace Metal Biogeochemistry
Description: One or more graduate positions are available to study trace metals in the Arctic focusing on lead and iron isotopes with Professor B.A. Bergquist.
Development of molecular markers for the study of carbon and nitrogen biogeochemistry
Biogeochemistry and Geomicrobiology
A graduate research assistantship is available to pursue research in microorganism– mineral interactions…
Climate and Tectonics in the Andes and Central Asia
Highly motivated PhD and MSc students are sought to work on a variety of problems in tectonic geomorphology with Lindsay Schoenbohm. Students are needed in particular for two recently funded projectsin the Andes and Turkey.
Fully Funded M.Sc. or Ph. D. position: Cretaceous Carbon and Sulfur Cycling
The Early Createcous is characterized by major changes in the global carbon and sulfur cycles. This project aims to better understand these changes and to explore the potential interdependencies….
Fully funded M.Sc. or Ph.D. position on global biogeochemical cycles/marine geochemistry
We use cutting edge analytical equipment and a transdisciplinary approach to explore new frontiers in science. We use computer modeling, stable isotope geochemistry, microcosm culture experiments, and field data to investigate the feedbacks between life and geological processes.
Fully funded M.Sc. or Ph.D. position: Biogeochemical carbon & sulfur cycling in Crawford Lake
We search a motivated and dedicated individual to investigate the biogeochemical cycling of carbon and sulfur in the watercolumn of a small meromictic lake in the vincinity of Toronto…
Graduate research opportunities in glasses and geological melts.
Mineral Exploration

A structural geology study using geophysical data and remote sensing techniques aims to better understand the geometry and distribution of porphyry deposits in the Canadian Cordillera. The project involves multi-disciplinary data integration, interpretation and field studies. A MSc position is available.

position is available.

Mantle Petrology
MSc and PhD projects are available in mantle petrology research.
Stratigraphy and sedimentology
Field-based projects to better understand the mechanisms of stratigraphic preservation and to expand our knowledge of the architecture and sequence stratigraphy of nonmarine deposits.
Various research projects in large-scale tectonophysics. These primarily involve reconciling geodynamic modeling with geophysical/geological/geodetic observables in specific tectonic regimes.
