The Energy and Emissions Research Lab (EERL) leads a range of interdisciplinary emissions measurement, technology development, methane inventory analysis, and climate policy related projects to quantify and reduce methane and other pollutant emissions in Canada and globally. Specific tasks and activities vary by thesis project but can include development and operation of advanced measurement equipment (sensors, drones, etc.), large-scale experiments to quantify emissions, field work with government and industry partners, application of advanced data analytics to support development of measurement-based pollutant inventories, life cycle assessment and techno-economic analysis to support new regulatory policy and drive mitigation. The selected applicant will collaborate closely and conduct research with students, postdoctoral fellows, research associates, and professors within the EERL and other collaborating agencies and will have the opportunity to support a wide range of existing projects. All graduate students in EERL are encouraged to participate in national and international conferences as part of creating impactful, publishable research that contributes to science and society.
