Under the leadership of the Sentinel North program of Université Laval (Quebec City, Canada), the International Ph.D. School (IPS) provides international students with a unique opportunity to interact with high-profile scientists as part of a transdisciplinary and highly technological training program aiming to demystify the role of light in driving arctic marine food webs, ecosystems services, and human health in the North.
Taking place on board the Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen deployed in Baffin Bay and the Fjords of Baffin Island, Nunavut (Canada), the school will provide participants with a hands-on and integrative experience with a wide range of disciplines such as optics / photonics, Arctic marine biology and ecology, marine physics, biochemistry, remote sensing and human health. Under the supervision of renowned researchers and experimented professionals, school activities will be conducted as part of an actual ocean research program, deploying state-of-the art samplers and sensors.
The call for application is closed.
Who should apply
Up to 18 international graduate students with various backgrounds will be selected. The target audience are PhD students, but in some cases, postdoctoral fellows or M.Sc. students (or equivalent) with relevant professional qualifications may also apply.
