Project description:

The Department of Biological Sciences of the University of Alberta is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to work on the project “Development of a comprehensive geospatial tool for assessing watershed integrity and aquatic ecosystem health in the North Saskatchewan River basin”. The aim of this project is to develop a geospatial model of watershed integrity, calibrated using multidisciplinary field-based data from selected tributaries in the North Saskatchewan River (NSR). It uses a paired monitoring and modeling approach to develop a geospatial tool that will ultimately allow the identification of potential areas of aquatic ecosystem impairment. This project is a collaborative initiative between the University of Alberta and Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP), and is funded by the Water Innovation Program of Alberta Innovates.
