MSC Opportunity Oxygen Monitoring in Soil and Sediment University of Waterloo Ecohydrology Research Group Canada

MSC Opportunity Oxygen Monitoring in Soil and Sediment


 

We invite applications for a potential MSc student to participate in a research project in the Ecohydrology Research Groupstarting September 2018. The goal of this project is to advance the high-resolution measurements of oxygen (O2) in soil and sediments under varying environmental conditions to provide insight into the biogeochemical functioning of natural environments, ranging from terrestrial to aquatic settings. The main tasks of the MSc student will be conducting laboratory and field experiments. The MSc student will focus on the field validation and implementation of an in-house developed Multi Fiber Optode (MuFO) microsensor system to measure in real-time the dissolved O2 concentrations in soils and sediments at selected field sites, including riparian areas and hyporheic zones. The student will be guided by Drs. Philippe Van Cappellen and Fereidoun Rezanezhad, and collaborators from multiple universities involved in this project. 

 

 

Eligibility 

 

 

Applicant must have specialization in biogeochemistry, hydrology, soil science, Environmental Engineering or a related field. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated skills and experience in experimental work in biogeochemistry and environmental sciences.
