The UQAR-ISMER, in partnership with the University of New Brunswick, Dalhousie University, Laval University and the Geological Survey of Canada, is recruiting six students to undertake master and doctoral research projects in the fields of oceanography, coastal geoscience, creative writing and geopoetics.

Funded by the Réseau Québec maritime (RQM) and the Marine Environmental Observation, Prediction and Response (MEOPAR) network, these projects focus on a submarine canyon system located in the St. Lawrence Estuary.

Five projects at the master’s level and one project at the doctoral level are available. Research projects will begin in the fall 2020 or winter 2021. Project descriptions are available below.
