Research Opportunities

Research mandate

Fostering a diverse academic environment increases creativity and innovation. Diverse ideas, values and perspectives are inherently valuable for success. This research group values collaborative rather than competitive scientific progress, where researchers are supported with the tools they need to succeed. In following these values, we will conduct outstanding research and train the next generation of responsible and diverse scientists who represent our society and solve problems in the fields of Mathematics, Computer Science, Geophysics and beyond.

Postdoctoral and Technician Opportunities

I am currently seeking a Senior Research Technician to write, reimagine, reorganize, improve and maintain software currently used for collaboration between several academic and industry organizations. The software in question supports researchers in their continued development of geophysical numerical modelling and inversion methods as part of the NSERC-funded project "Numerical Solution of Next Generation Inverse Problems for Geophysical Applications". This position will be funded by that NSERC grant and by an NBIF Research Professionals Initiative grant entitled "Object-Oriented Programming Design for Multimodal Geophysical Inversion". Ideal candidates will have a solid background in modern software design principles, and experience working with a team on software development projects. Funding is available for start dates as early as May 1, 2022, but the start date can be delayed if needed. The position will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is found.

Graduate Student Opportunities

I am currently seeking a Master's student to fund from my grants. The MSc project will explore applications of various geophysical methods to reconnaissance for weaknesses in flood control barriers on the Tantramar Marsh, using approaches informed by advanced 3D numerical modelling combined with ongoing geotechnical investigations by provincial authorities. There is scope to adjust the focus of the project to student interests and career goals. Ideal candidates will have a background in Earth sciences, geological or civil engineering, physics or a related field, good quantitative skills and an aptitude for instrumentation, and field studies. Funding is available for start dates as early as May 1, 2022, but the start date can be delayed if needed. The position will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is found. Because there is no graduate program in my department at Mount Allison University, the position will officially be held with my collaborator Karl Butler at the University of New Brunswick.

Undergraduate Opportunities

Undergraduate summer research students interested working with me on any of my research projects should contact me for possible funded positions. I am also always willing to take on students with their own funds. I usually plan to hire one or two undergraduate research students each summer. If any of my research avenues interest you, please reach out: I'm always happy to discuss my research with potential candidates.
