ALL FUNDED POSITIONS IN THE LAB ARE FULL, BUT WE’RE RECRUITING Ph.D. STUDENTS TO START JAN 2020 & LATER. Grad students & PDFs carrying their own funding or willing to apply for external funding are always welcome to apply.

We’re looking for curious, open-minded, highly motivated students who love challenging research, and developing novel, rigorous approaches to answer scientific questions. Applicants with backgrounds in physical and/or biological sciences (any field) who are interested in interdisciplinary research are strongly encouraged. We provide the training if you bring the brains, energy & enthusiasm. Candidates should exhibit promise to develop outstanding analytical, technical, experimental design & communication skills, and demonstrate strong knowledge of literature in their M.Sc. research field, as well as safe laboratory practices. Animal work is not required for all projects, but applicants for projects involving animals must commit fully to understanding and adhering to ethical standards of animal work.

REQUIRED APPLICATION MATERIALS: 1) C.V. including all work & research experience, list of all published & submitted papers & abstracts, scholarships & awards; 2) two-page statement describing what you’d like to study in our lab & your career goals, 3) list of scholarships for which you’re eligible (with links); 4) contact info for 3 references; 5) current transcripts. 

DEADLINES FOR APPLICATION SUBMISSION: Sep 1, Dec 31, May 1 for May, Sept and Jan 1 start dates in the following year. Interviews will be conducted within the month following application deadlines.  Unfortunately, we cannot accept applicants with grade point averages less than 3.3 on a 4.0 scale (B+) in graduate courses, or international M.Sc. applicants who cannot obtain scholarships to support international tuition fees (international Ph.D. students are accepted). Email responses will be provided to all applicants who meet all of the requirements described above. Due to the large numbers of applications we receive, we cannot reply to applicants who do not meet these requirements.

OPENINGS FOR OTHER POSITIONS: We accept postdoctoral fellows who obtain external salary support, and M.Sc. students who complete strong undergraduate & summer student projects in our own or other labs before applying to graduate school. M.Sc. applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of B+ (3.3/4.0), and be Canadian citizens or residents (or obtain external scholarships to support international tuition). We accept a limited number of 3rd year undergraduate students with a minimum cumulative B average in coursework (3.0/4.0) who are interested in pursuing graduate research training for academic research projects, summer research projects and work study positions. Unfortunately, we are not currently hiring lab staff. DEADLINES: PDFs (anytime). M.Sc. applicants ( Sep 1, Dec 31, May 1 for May, Sep & Jan start dates in the following year, respectively). Undergraduate applicants: Jul 1 (academic research projects & work study positions starting Sep of same year), Nov 1 (summer research projects in following year). We cannot consider late applications due to fixed university & course admissions & scholarship deadlines.
