Postdoctoral position in Civil & Environmental Engineering: University of Alberta 1083 views


Overview:

We are seeking a full-time postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Alberta, to lead a research project with National Research Council Canada to gather, organize, and synthesize data on transportation operations in Canada’s Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

Eligibility Criteria:

The qualifications for this position are:

  • PhD and related experience in engineering, natural sciences, and/or social sciences.
  • Demonstrated scholarly ability through publications in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at scientific meetings and conferences.

  • Experience with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is an asset but not required; however, the successful candidate is expected to learn and use it extensively.
  • Preference will be given to candidates with experience working in or with remote communities, Inuit communities, and/or the territorial north.

About the position:

  1. The transportation system in Canada’s territorial north is sparse, covers immense distances, and is highly seasonal and multimodal. Climate change has created many significant challenges for transportation infrastructure and operations.
  2. Overall, we have much less information and data about the system, making infrastructure investment decisions and planning highly challenging.
  3. The successful candidate will have strong coordination skills to work directly with researchers (including professors, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduate students), government partners, private operators, and others in successfully leading this initiative.
  4. Responsibilities will include defining and delivering on timelines (including searching out transportation data from various sources
