Supported by Genome Canada and NSERC Alliance, Dr. Paul Wilson (Trent) and Dr. Micheline Manseau (ECCC, Trent) through EcoGenomics (ecogenomicscanada.ca) are recruiting PhDs and Post-doctoral Fellows (PDFs) focusing on caribou conservation.


Project opportunities include studying caribou ecotypes in Ontario’s Ring-of-Fire region; the adaptive genomics of caribou including climate change and rapidly evolving genes; genomic erosion in isolated caribou populations (natural and captive) and at the southern range margins of boreal caribou; landscape genomics of Mountain caribou in the Northwest Territories and the Yukon; ancient DNA; and a comparison of caribou across the boreal range.


The national network supporting these positions include partnerships with Environment & Climate Change Canada (ECCC); Canadian Wildlife Service (CWS); Parks Canada; the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources & Forestry (OMNRF), and other provincial (e.g. Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan) and territorial jurisdictions (Northwest Territories, Yukon, Nunavut); wildlife management boards and Indigenous communities (e.g. the Sahtu Wildlife Management Board); and industry such as MB Hydro. Field work and partnership placement opportunities are available.


Positions may be based out of Peterborough, Ontario at Trent University or Ottawa at the National Wildlife Research Centre, Environment & Climate Change Canada (ECCC).


One or more of the following will be considered assets:

  1. Bioinformatics and computational biology;
  2. Molecular genomic protocols; and
  3. Estimation of demographic parameters using spatial capture-recapture (sCR); density estimation; population modelling; and network analyses.
