PhD & Job Opportunities: Team Shrub, UBC

PhDs, Post Docs, Data Scientist, and Research Coordinator positions with Team Shrub, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Join Team Shrub to study climate change impacts in northern ecosystems!

Team Shrub (the research group of Prof. Isla Myers-Smith), now based in Vancouver in the Faculty of Forestry at the University of British Columbia is recruiting for fully-funded PhDs, postdocs, a data scientist (research data coordinator) and a research coordinator!  Positions are
open now and applicants will be assessed starting in mid-April.

It is an exciting time to be joining the team as we start two new research projects the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Global Change Ecology of Northern Ecosystems and the European Research Council RESILIENCE Synergy Grant with field research in the Canadian North and
data synthesis and remote sensing analyses around the circumpolar Arctic.  Some of this research will have a strong permafrost angle, but all of this work is occurring in ice-rich permafrost ecosystems, so it would be great to get keen permafrost interested folks to apply!

Positions are fully-funded and full-time. Applicants from Northern Canada, Indigenous applicants and those from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
