A Ph.D position on post-disturbance forest dynamics in the laboratory of Marie-Hélène Brice (co-supervised by Mathieu Bouchard from Université Laval) is currently open. The goal of this project is to assess and quantify the effect of natural and human disturbances on forest dynamics across Quebec using data from North American forest inventories. The student will contribute to improve models to simulate changes in composition over time as a function of different environmental factors (types of disturbances, climate, soils, etc.). In addition to the work on data analysis, this project may also include fieldwork depending on the student’s interests.
