The position will focus on the ecology of floodplain wetlands, and is linked
to the Mactaquac Aquatic Ecosystem Study (MAES;
on the Saint John River. In particular, the post-doctoral fellowship will
involve exploration of big data approaches to ecosystem analysis employing a
novel linkage of environmental DNA, field variables, and high resolution

analysis skills with experience with large, multidisciplinary datasets and
multivariate statistics (including R). This research project is a
multidisciplinary collaboration between the Canadian Rivers Institute and
New Brunswick Power.
The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to be involved in
other research projects, including ongoing field studies on boreal
floodplain wetlands in the Mackenzie River basin.
The position, which is for an initial period of one year, but renewable
subject to available funding for a further two years, will be jointly
supervised by Dr. Wendy Monk and Dr Donald Baird (Environment Canada) who
are based at the Canadian Rivers Institute at the University of New
Brunswick’s Fredericton campus.
