Graduate Student Opportunities

The University of Windsor’s School of the Environment is seeking motivated graduate students at M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels to conduct research in the areas of (1) 3D hydrodynamic-water quality modeling of contaminated sites in Lake Ontario, (2) oil spill fate and transport modeling in Lakes Huron and Michigan, and (3) development of machine learning and signal processing tools to forecast climate change impacts on freshwater systems. Selected candidates will be advised by Dr. Ali Saber. Students will be fully supported with a stipend and tuition through research and teaching assistantships.
The University of Windsor’s School of the Environment and the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER) have world-class research facilities and strong ties with NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) and the Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) at the University of Michigan. Selected candidates will have the opportunity to interact with distinguished researchers in aquatic ecology, water quality, and environmental modeling. The School offers graduate programs designed to develop professional competence and prepare students to solve the technical problems of society and the global environment.
Motivated candidates with a background in earth and atmospheric sciences, water resources engineering, environmental engineering, environmental science and chemistry, chemical engineering, or a related discipline are encouraged to apply. Experience in programming and data processing in MATLAB/Python/R is preferred. For prospective Ph.D. students, prior experience in 3D hydrodynamic-water quality modeling, ecohydrology, and the application of artificial intelligence in environmental modeling is considered an asset.

If you are interested, please send your letter of interest summarizing your qualifications and research interests, CV, copies of university transcripts, relevant research publications (if any), and contact information of two references as a single PDF file to Dr. Saber (asaber@uwindsor.ca). International applicants, please include their TOFEL/IELTS scores (if applicable).

The anticipated start date is Sep 2023 or shortly thereafter. Applications for January 2024 are also considered. Applications will be reviewed as received, until the positions are filled. Please refer to https://www.uwindsor.ca/graduate-studies/346/admission-requirements for general admission requirements.

The University of Windsor is committed to excellence in teaching and research, offering a friendly and supportive environment for living and learning. It is Canada’s southernmost university, and its border location provides unique cultural, recreational, and educational opportunities.
