MSc student in Nutrient Biogeochemistry


We are currently looking for an MSc student to work on a collaborative project between Dalhousie University and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. The student will be responsible for analysis of a large nutrient dataset to assess spatial and temporal nutrient variability patterns on the Scotian Shelf.  The project will include data organization and quality control, statistical analysis, and graphical presentation of variability patterns. The student will produce a publication including interpretation of the patterns and trends, which can be used as a basis for additional work on nutrient dynamics in the NW Atlantic shelf system. Students applying should have previous experience with R, parametric and non-parametric statistics, and analysis of large oceanographic datasets.


If interested, please contact cbuchwald@dal.ca for more information.
