6 PhD Student positions available, McMaster Centre for Climate Change

McMaster Centre for Climate Change, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada ( is recruiting 6 PhD students as part of a newly funded project to explore the impacts of climate change, extreme weather events and forest management activities on carbon, water and nutrient cycle processes in an age-sequence of temperate forests in Southern Ontario, Canada.


Postdoc Position in Boreal Peatland Phenology and Carbon Dynamics

Project and Tasks
The postdoc will explore biotic and abiotic controls on carbon dioxide and methane exchanges in a boreal peatland in Northern Sweden. An automated 12-chamber system connected to a state-of-the-art gas analyzer, a suit of meteorological and soil environmental sensors, digital repeat photography and spectral reflectance measurements are available to explore peatland carbon, climate and phenology dynamics. The overall goal is to disentangle the effects of climate and vegetation phenology on peatland carbon dioxide and methane exchanges.
