Welcome! Please explore the site to see if your interests are a good fit with our group’s mission and research themes. We aim to provide an inclusive space for scientists from diverse backgrounds and perspectives to thrive.
Please use the email subject line ‘Prospective graduate student’ for supervision inquiries. Kindly include 1) a brief note about your research interests related to our lab in your email, 2) your CV/resume, and 3) unofficial copy of your transcript from previous college or graduate program(s). You can find more information about the graduate program and admission requirements in Biology at the University of Alberta here. The application deadline for a fall (Sept) start is Feb 1 each year.
How will your project and stipend be funded? Just like research topics, graduate student funding is highlight individualized. UAlberta guarantees one of the highest levels of graduate student stipend funding in Canada, which can be comprised of a mix of teaching fellowships, scholarships, and supervisor grant funding. I strongly encourage Canadian citizens and permanent residents to apply for NSERC graduate fellowships. Are you an international student? There are many opportunities to support your studies in Canada, such as the programs listed here.
I welcome all inquiries and enjoy assisting with funding applications to support our work together. There are many excellent postdoctoral funding programs available to support your research, including: NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowships, Banting Fellowships, Liber Ero Conservation Research Fellowships, and David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellowships. From time to time I will post specific research opportunities on this page as funding is available (please check back).
