Position Summary:
This position is at the intersection of social science and geographic information science, within a thematic context of marine management and shipping governance. Research will look at the effects of shipping in Inuit communities in the Canadian Eastern Arctic. The research will be twofold: 1) to explore Inuit concepts of marine space, and the ways in which cultural, social and economic value can be rendered through GIS; and 2) seek to analyze and visualize how shipping (noise, atmospheric emissions, routing) can affect Inuit marine use of marine and coastal spaces.

The ideal candidate will have either a background in social science (e.g. cultural geography, marine management, anthropology, sociology), with a demonstrated knowledge/interest in GIS, or a background in GIS, with demonstrated knowledge/interest in social science (e.g. cultural geography, marine management, anthropology, sociology). Arctic research experience will be an asset. Applicants are advised to consult the PhD admission requirements at the Faculty of Graduate Studies (Interdisciplinary PhD):
