Ph.D. Fellowship in Agroecology, Quebec, Canada

Spatial structure and ecological integrity of food webs in agro-ecosystems: A stable isotope approach comparing organic to conventional farms.
A doctoral student is sought to work in a research program examining how landscape structure and biodiversity of agro-ecosystems affect the functioning of food webs linking plants to higher consumers using C, N, and S stable isotopes. The successful candidate will be based at the University du Québec à Trois-Rivières and will work in close collaboration with G. Cabana and R. Proulx.
The position will provide ample opportunities for interaction with other members of the Research Centre for Watershed – Aquatic Ecosystem Interactions, which currently includes 10 faculty members in the fields of Ecology and Physical Geography, as well as 40 M.Sc./Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows.
A strong background and interest in stable isotope ecology and spatial analysis of ecosystems will be an asset. While being an asset, fluency in French is not a necessary condition for a successful application.
The annual stipend is CAN $20,000/year for 3 years. Candidates should send a CV together with a letter of interest and the names and contact information of two references before September 1, 2012 to the address below.
