In my personal experience, including ideas and perspectives from a group that is diverse in terms of identity and disciplinary background (e.g. empirical vs. theoretical, community vs. ecosystem ecology) leads to better and more interesting science. We also have more energy and capacity to do creative science when we have good work-life balance. If a research group based on those principles sounds good to you and you’re interested in the research that we do (please check out the “research” tab), please get in touch about joining the lab as an undergraduate researcher, graduate student, or postdoc. Members of under-represented groups are encouraged to apply.
Graduate students are hosted in the School of Research and Environmental Management. Intake is once per year with an application deadline of January 15. Applications for 2021 start dates are therefore closed. Students interested in the January 2022 application cycle should get in touch in summer or fall of 2021.
SFU undergraduates interested in research opportunities in the group should get in touch at any time – directed studies and thesis projects are just a few ways that you could join our group.
I do not currently have funding to support postdocs, but I would be happy to help you develop a fellowship application to work in my group. Some postdoc fellowship options are: NSERC, Banting, Liber Ero, MITACS (requires organizational matching funds). There may be others that match your profile, including from your home country or the country where you did your PhD, if you are not Canadian.
