CREATE Your Future

Calling all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who want advanced training in state-of-the-art environmental research and technologies!

The CREATE Enviro training program will allow you to tackle current issues in environmental health, with a focus on developing and applying novel methods for environmental monitoring and assessment. If you are interested in the fields of geomatics and remote sensing applications; genetics and genomics analysis; population survey and viability assessment; and environmental modeling and forecasting, then this program may be for you!

Our goal is to make you ready for employment upon graduation through our unique training program. This involves gaining professional skills through a short work placement and workshops, while completing your thesis research. While not your typical graduate program, we’re preparing you for the future in the ever changing environmental sciences field.

With funding from a $1.65-million Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) grant in 2015 from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada, we are entering our 4th year. There are opportunities to do your graduate work with leading experts in environmental research at Trent University (Peterborough, Ontario), Queens University (Kingston, Ontario) and the University of Toronto.
