Arctic Atmospheric Science
NSERC - Canada
Event Type: Field Training and Schools
When: 1 September 2013
Where: Multiple Universities, Canada
The Canadian Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council's (NSERC) Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) Program is now recruiting students for graduate studies. Several Canadian universities are participants in the program, which is available for September 2013.
The CREATE program aims to provide students and postdoctoral fellows with training in arctic atmospheric science, including the use of state-of-the-art instrumentation and analysis of large datasets. The program uses the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory (PEARL), which is run by the Canadian Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Change (CANDAC) located on Ellesmere Island in Eureka, Nunavut.
The program has projects and stipends available for September 2013. Students interested in pursuing a graduate degree involving arctic atmospheric science are invited to contact the CREATE investigator with whom they wish to study. When a potential supervisor has been identified, students should apply to the relevant university and department and inform the CREATE Training Program Director of their application.
