About Me

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 Environmental Achievement.
