PhD opportunity in energy and health

How can developed and undeveloped hydropower resources be used to maximize environmental, health, economic, and other benefits? What drives policy and decision-making around hydropower development in Canada and utilization in the U.S.?

I am currently seeking a student interested in devoting the doctoral dissertation to addressing these and related questions. The student will benefit from existing collaborations in economics, health and engineering in research and professional practice across North America (and be encouraged to develop new ones). 

See advertisement to the right for more details. Please email CV/resume and a short expression of interest to Professor Ryan Calder at
