Mining, Aboriginal Communities and Well-Being

Ben Bradshaw, Associate Professor, and Jen Jones, PhD candidate and Trudeau Scholar, are looking to recruit a masters student to complete research with them and the Little Salmon Carmacks First Nation on mining and community well-being. Preference will be given to residents of Yukon. 

Eligible candidates would enrol in the University of Guelph's Geography's MA program (see http://www.uoguelph.ca/geography/graduate-programs-geography) starting September 2016, and spend two semesters completing course work in advance of starting Yukon-based field work in summer 2017 (with potential preliminary fieldwork in summer 2016). The selected candidate could expect minimum guaranteed support of $20,500 in year 1 (semesters 1 to 3) and $10,500 in year 2 (semesters 4 and 5), plus coverage of all field expenses. 

Interested students with a background in Geography or a relevant social science, and no less than an 80% average in their senior undergraduate years can secure more information from Jen Jones at jjones14@uoguelph.ca or Ben Bradshaw at bbradsha@uoguelph.ca
