Enquiries are welcomed from qualified people interested in any of my research areas.

For post-doctoral researchers:

Qualifications include:

  • ability to secure competitive funding to support living expenses.

Email enquiries should include:

  • a summary of your current education;
  • a statement of research interests and career goals;
  • an electronic copy of your transcript;
  • names and contact information for three people willing to act as academic references.

For graduate students:uparrow

Qualifications include:

  • ability to secure competitive funding to support tuition and living expenses;
  • a current TOEFL or equivalent result for students whose studies have been outside North America or are from country where English is not the official language. Although not strictly required for admission, assessment of your academic record could be facilitated by providing GRE results, if available, since grading practices can vary significantly between some countries.

Graduate students typically enroll in an M.Sc. program in the first instance and transfer later to a Ph.D program if progress warrants. Please see College of Graduate Studies and Research for additional details and downloadable forms.

Canadian citizens and landed immigrants are encouraged to apply for NSERC PGS-M or PGS-D scholarships. Deadlines for these are mid October for the following year. NSERC applications require:

  • completion of appropriate forms;
  • a transcript;
  • research statement; and
  • identification of a potential supervisor.

The University of Saskatchewan has a limited number of competitive Dean's Graduate Scholarships, University Graduate Scholarships, and Graduate Teaching Fellowships that can support non-Canadian students. For details, see the College of Graduate Studies and Research.

Email enquiries should include:

  • a summary of your current education;
  • a statement of research interests and goals;
  • an electronic copy of your transcript;
  • names and contact information for three people willing to act as academic references.

The entire application process requires a minimum of several months from first contact to beginning a program of study.

For undergraduate students:uparrow

Students are invited to discuss Biol 480.3 and Biol 481.6 undergraduate research projects. Typically projects are planned in Term 2 of the academic year before the project begins. With appropriate planning, undergraduate research projects can be linked to skills learned during a summer research session, but the precise topic must be distinct from the summer's work.

Funding mechanisms to support summer research programs:

  • the University of Saskatchewan NSERC USRA internal deadline is the first week of January. USRA applicants must be Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents, and have completed at least two years of undergraduate study with have an average > 80%. Application requires discussion with a potential supervisor to develop a research project, typically in Term 1, and submission of completed forms plus official transcripts. For details and forms, see NSERC.

  • the University of Saskatchewan USTEP-funded summer positions are typically advertised beginning in early April for a start date at the beginning of May.

Volunteers will be considered under exceptional circumstances.
