The PhD student will undertake research at the intersection of social science and geographic information science or information technology, within a thematic context of exploring the nature of knowledge (scientific and local) of benthic environments in selected sites in Nova Scotia, as well as the mechanisms of knowledge and data visualization and mobilization. Research will look at how knowledge holders (scientists, industry, government, indigenous and non-indigenous fishers) relate to ocean environments, and particularly to benthic geographies and ecosystems.
Funding: 30K per year for three years. The IdPhD degree program typically takes longer than
three years to complete. Students should plan for four years and will be encouraged to seek
additional funding through scholarships.
