MSc Student Position in the South Slave

As part of a project which is pioneering a completely novel approach to ecosystem biodiversity monitoring using genomics, we seek to work with local communities to see how results from this work compare to traditional knowledge.  We would also like to study local community perceptions of this new technology to determine how it can be used to complement traditional knowledge and empower volunteer monitoring networks to deliver world-class science to monitor their local ecosystems.   The MSc project is a collaboration between Donald Baird (Canadian Rivers Institute, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, New Brunswick) and Sarah Rosolen (Aurora Research Institute, Fort Smith, Northwest Territories). The student would be registered in the graduate program in the Biology at UNB Fredericton, but would have the opportunity to spend extended periods conducting field work in northern communities associated with the project (Fort Smith, NWT; Fort Resolution, NWT and Fort Chipewyan, AB).
