Legacies of Agricultural Pollutants (LEAP)
LEAP is a multi-national project between Canada, Sweden, Denmark and Portugal that seeks to provide a unified framework that incorporates agricultural legacies and time lags into adaptive management strategies to protect water resources under changing climate and land use. We are looking for three PhD students and one postdoctoral fellow who will work as a team to develop the modelling framework for Great Lakes watersheds.

Strategic Partnership Grant: Reactive Interfaces in Agroecosystems
This NSERC-SPG project aims to study the mechanisms of carbon and nutrient retention reactive interfaces within the watershed. Specifically, the combination of field, laboratory, and modelling experiments at a range of Ontario field sites will focus on 1) the capillary fringe, 2) riparian zones, and 3) the hyporheic zone. We are looking for four graduate students and one postdoctoral fellow who will work as a team towards the development of a generalized reactive transport modelling framework that incorporates the reactive interfaces at different scales.
