Geotop is seeking two candidates for collaborative PhD projects between McGill University and the Université du Québec à Montréal. These projects aim to develop a comprehensive understanding of the genesis and emplacement of Archean Li pegmatites in the Superior Province (QC). Research is based on structural, geochronological, petrological and geo- chemical studies, supported by experiments and modelling on the Sirmac and Moblan examples in the Frotet-Evans greenstone belt.

Postdoctoral position at UQAM - Carbon storage and recent changes in peatlands in the Hudson Bay lowlands
We are seeking for a strong post-doctoral candidate to document the dynamics of long-term and recent C storage of peatlands in the Wapusk Naonal Park, located in the Hudson Bay peatland complex, Manitoba.
This project is part of the 2030 Plan for a Green Economy of the Government of Quebec, to avoid the destruction and degradation of terrestrial carbon reservoirs. In Quebec, wetlands cover 12.5% of the land area, and in the south of the province these large carbon reservoirs are strongly impacted by anthropogenic activities such as agriculture and urban development. Wetland conservation and management are important nature-based solutions to mitigate climate change.
