Postdoctoral Fellowship in Geomatics and Forest Ecology at UQAC (Canada)

UQAC – Université du Quebec à Chicoutimi. We are recruiting a post-doctoral research scientist for the spatial characterization of tree growth by the integration of spatially-continuous variables. The selected candidate will be based at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (QC, Canada) and will participate to a project involving academic and governmental scientists aiming to (1) describe the spatial pattern of tree phenology and radial growth across the boreal forest of Quebec, (2) identify and quantify the effect of climate on these patterns, (3) construct spatially explicit models of radial growth. Within this scope, opportunities exist to develop and explore new challenging research questions of interest. This position offers an exciting opportunity to lead a research activity, demonstrate your quantitative skill, build international collaborations, and publish in high impact journals.

PhD project available on predicting impacts of extreme climate events in major forestry species

We are seeking a PhD student to begin October 1st 2018 looking at understanding and predicting impacts of extreme climate events in major forestry species. The project will quantify the impact and legacy of droughts on forest growth based on Pinus and Picea tree ring chronologies combined with UK soils and climate data to identify and plan for adverse impacts on the UK forestry sector. We will also compare drought impacts and legacies against those apparent in equivalent tree ring chronologies from Spain as an analogue to future climatic conditions for the UK and at additional UK sites predicted to be at highest risk according to climate change forecasts.
