Schindler began his career as an assistant professor at Trent University
(1966-1968). In 1968, he was the founding director of the Experimental
Lakes Area (ELA) in northwestern Ontario, where ecosystem-scale
experiments with a variety of pollutants and long-term monitoring of
lakes and streams have taken place for over 40 years. He has been the
“Killam Memorial Chair and Professor of Ecology” at the University of
Alberta since 1989. Schindler’s science aims to underpin environmental
policy and has earned him numerous national and international awards,
including the Gerhard Herzberg Gold Medal, the First Stockholm Water
Prize, the Volvo Environmental Prize and the Tyler Prize for
