MSc position in climate change, sweet cherry production and cold hardines
An MSc position is available immediately in the Biology Department, University of British Columbia, Okanagan
Campus (Kelowna BC) to study the interaction of deficit irrigation and cold hardiness in sweet cherry production,
in collaboration with commercial growers and scientists at the AAFC Summerland Research and Development Centre.
Research includes laboratory, greenhouse, field studies and computer modelling. Background in plant biology,
horticulture or environmental studies and a valid driverâ€™s license required.
Ph.D. position in plant developmental biology
We are seeking a motivated Ph.D. candidate to join Dr. Daniel Kierzkowski's team studying plant growth and
organogenesis. Using the moss Physcomitrella patens as a model species, we aim to uncover the molecular and
cellular basis of organogenesis in non-vascular plants.
