Ph.D. Scholarships from the Institute of Ocean Sciences in Rimouski ISMER, Quebec

The ISMER Doctoral Excellence Scholarship program aims to recruit up to 10 new people from diverse backgrounds who will begin their doctoral studies at ISMER full-time starting in the fall of 2020 or winter 2021.

The scholarships, amounting to $20,000 per year, will be for three years.

Target audience

These scholarships are open to students in Quebec, other provinces in Canada or internationally.

  • Meet the admission requirements of UQAR’s Ph.D. program in oceanography;
  • Hold a cumulative average of at least 3.7/4.3 or the equivalent (e.g. 14/20);
  • The doctoral thesis must be conducted under the direction of a regular professor at ISMER. Get a letter of support from the professor responsible for one of the available projects.
  • Be enrolled in the ISMER PhD in Oceanography at the time of the scholarship

Interested individuals must submit a complete CV (including scientific papers, scholarships, awards, sea missions, etc.), a cover letter explaining the candidate’s background and how this path is in line with the proposed project and the PHD in oceanography at ISMER, all academic transcripts, a letter of support from the professor in charge of the project, and three (3) letters of recommendation (including one from a principal of the student’s research work) in electronic format to the ISMER Graduate Studies Committee in Oceanography.

Only complete files that meet the criteria for submission and excellence of this scholarship program will be evaluated by a selection committee after the application deadline. The team informs you that the final selection of candidates will be made during a face-to-face or remote interview by the selection committee. We support an equality program and strongly encourage women, people with disabilities, members of visible and ethnic minorities and Aboriginal people to apply.
