I am looking for one or two MSc students to join my research group at the Department of Plant, Food, and Environmental Sciences at Dalhousie University in Truro, Nova Scotia.
The project is to evaluate the effects of different types, rates, and application timings of enhanced efficiency nitrogen fertilizers on the agronomic (e.g., nitrogen use efficiency, grain yield, and grain quality), environmental (e.g, greenhouse gas emission and nitrate leaching), and economic parameters in cereals and oilseed crops in Atlantic Canada.
Qualifications: Applicants must hold a B.Sc degree in plant science, agronomy, or related discipline and meet admission requirements to the M.Sc program of the Faculty of Agriculture. Interest and knowledge about soil fertility and nutrient management would be a strong asset.
Due to the requirement of conducting field work, applicants with a valid driver’s license in Canada would be preferred.
Starting Date: January or May 2024.
To Apply: Send a cover letter and CV to Dr. Yunfei Jiang, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest, however, only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
