Job description

The Environmental Geophysics Lab (https://www.es.utoronto.ca/rodrigo-correa-rangel/) in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Toronto is recruiting MS and PhD students (Fall 2024) to conduct research at the interface of near-surface geophysics and Arctic environmental science.

The student will use a combination of noninvasive field geophysical methods, field observations, geophysical modeling, remote sensing, and/or laboratory measurements to investigate permafrost dynamics, lake and drained lake basin systems, lake ice properties, and/or snow hydrology interactions in the Canadian Arctic and/or Subarctic regions.

The Environmental Geophysics Lab employs a variety of near-surface geophysical methods, including ground penetrating radar, transient electromagnetics, electrical resistivity tomography, nuclear magnetic resonance, and seismic refraction and reflection.

A background in geophysics, earth science/geoscience, cryosphere, geology, physics, engineering, or related fields is required. Experience with near-surface geophysical methods is desired.

If you are interested, please contact Rodrigo Rangel (rrangel@es.utoronto.ca) to discuss opportunities and research interests. In your email, please include a CV and state how your research interests align with Rodrigo’s work (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=zBZ_IT8AAAAJ&hl=en).

Please visit https://www.es.utoronto.ca/programs/graduate for details on the graduate program. All application materials must be received by January 15, 2024, for consideration. Note that the Department of Earth Sciences is not currently accepting international MS students.
