Changing Cold Regions Network (CCRN), Global Institute for Water Security (GIWS) - graduate student and post-doctoral opportunities
Changing Cold Regions Network initiative aims to understand, diagnose and predict interactions amongst the cryospheric, ecological, hydrological and climate components of the changing Earth system at multiple scales. With a focus on Western Canada’s rapidly changing cold interior, this major initiative links eight Canadian universities, four government agencies and 15 key international academic collaborators. CCRN will investigate a set of critical cold region environments, including the Western Cordillera, Western Boreal Forest, Lowland Permafrost and Prairies, and their integrated response at the scales of the Saskatchewan, Mackenzie and Peace-Athabasca basins and the regional climate system.
