I am often looking for highly motivated, bright, enthusiastic students to join our research group. If you have excellent communication skills, a passion for water resources engineering, the ability to show initiative and problem solve, as well as a love of the outdoors (including during winter!) or laboratory environment you may want to consider sending an application to:

My research focuses on river ice engineering and involves a combination of field work, laboratory experiments, and numerical modelling.
