Graphite Innovation and Technologies Inc. (GIT) has partnered with the Ocean Frontier Institute’s Ocean Graduate Excellence Network (OGEN) and Mitacs Accelerate to offer up to four unique opportunities for those embarking on a Masters or PhD.
We are seeking academic supervisors to participate in OGEN.
Supervisors must be affiliated with one of the Ocean Frontier Institute’s OGEN partner universities (Dalhousie University, Memorial University of Newfoundland, University of Prince Edward Island, University of New Brunswick), and have a background in green renewable coatings, materials science, paint formulation, advanced coatings for antifouling, and anticorrosive protection.
This joint research program runs out of the Bays at Innovacorp in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia (formerly known as the Technology Innovation Centre). Supervisors and students from other areas will be considered but should provide a plan for how they will address the requirement of the student to physically work in the Dartmouth facility for 75% of the time.
In order to facilitate the process, we will be holding an information session with GIT on December 15, which will be followed a call for expressions of interest that will be due in mid-January. It is anticipated awards will be announced in mid-February.
