The Cryospheric Sciences Group at the University of Alberta is keen to attract applicants to this program in the areas of Glaciology (Drs Martin Sharp and Jeffrey Kavanaugh), Sea Ice Science (Dr Christian Haas), Permafrost Science (Dr Duane Froese), and Microbiology of the Cryosphere (Dr Brian Lanoil) - or in areas of overlap between these different specialisations. The University of Alberta has an internal deadline of 12 September for initial screening of potential applicants. We therefore encourage potential applicants to contact us to discuss opportunities no later than September 2, 2011. Initial enquiries (indicating the candidate's area of expertise and research interests) should be sent to Dr Martin Sharp (email@example.com), who will direct them to the most suitable supervisor(s).
