Graduate scholarship in snow chemistry of Hg in the North

As part of a new initiative funded by ArcticNet, we are currently looking for a M.Sc. candidate in snow chemistry. Snow can be an important reservoir of chemical components, such as mercury, that can be eventually released towards lakes and rivers at snowmelt. However, the accumulation processes in the snow and the potential release of these components throughout the winter season in the Arctic environment and its possible impact on Northern communities’ health are not well known. In partnership with northern communities, we will follow mercury dynamics in Nunavik Quebec, and perform experiments on Hg redox chemistry in snow.
