NSERC scholarships and fellowships selection committees review all eligible PDF applications. The selection committees evaluate each application according to the selection criteria described in the Selection committee guide for Postgraduate Scholarships – Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships programs . Note that in order to address systemic barriers that limit the full participation of all talented individuals, NSERC aims for the proportion of short-listed or funded applications from those who self-identify as members of underrepresented groups to be at least similar to the proportion of applications received from these groups. This equalization process is performed as needed, and only amongst meritorious applications. The selection committees are organized according to the following broad discipline categories: cellular and molecular biology chemical, biomedical and materials science engineering chemistry civil and industrial engineering computing sciences electrical engineering evolution and ecology geosciences mathematical sciences mechanical engineering physics and astronomy plant and animal biology psychology

University of British Columbia

We are seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in decision analysis and environmental impacts of shipping at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver campus, situated on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) People. The goal of this position is to develop a systematic environmental impact assessment framework that will help inform technology development and deployment decisions for marine shipping. By applying this framework to real-world decision-making case studies, we aim to identify technology options that have the potential to reduce impacts from shipping across the full suite of environmental performance areas, considering synergies and trade-offs between areas. These environmental performance areas include, but are not limited to: climate, water quality, air quality, biodiversity, noise, and socio-cultural impacts mediated through the environment. Drs. Giang and Satterfield form a complementary interdisciplinary mentorship team, with diverse expertise in social-ecological systems, environmental impact assessment, and technology policy. Clear Seas will provide mentorship in knowledge mobilization and engagement with partners. This position will provide an opportunity to conduct applied interdisciplinary research, in partnership with civil society and government, that has the potential to directly inform decisions on the future of shipping in Canada.

We seek a qualified and highly motivated individual to conduct innovative research in the area of mining seismicity. The position is to enhance and strengthen our research efforts in understanding induced seismicity in various settings. This is a part of a MITACS Accelerate collaborative research grant led by the research group of Prof. Robert Shcherbakov (publish.uwo.ca/~rshcherb/ ) at Western University, London, Ontario, Canada in collaboration with industry partners (Nutrien Ltd. and International Minerals Innovation Institute). The position assumes the development of multidisciplinary approaches to study induced mining seismicity. Possible research topics include, but are not limited to, statistical modelling of mining seismicity, development of stochastic models for mining seismicity, probabilistic earthquake hazard assessment and forecasting of mining seismicity. The successful applicant is expected to have a PhD degree in Geophysics, Seismology, Physics, Earthquake Engineering, or a closely related field. Strong computer programming and data analysis skills in Matlab/Python are required. Previous research experience in modelling of natural or induced seismicity is a plus. The position also assumes publication of research findings in high-impact scientific journals.
