Research Opportunities exist in the Wilson lab for undergraduate and graduate students and post-doctoral investigators.
Post-doctoral opportunities are available in my lab, although they typically require that you obtain fellowship support (e.g. NSERC PDF). Please contact me directly to discuss your interests. Specific post-doctoral opportunities are posted below and commonly advertised through appropriate society job boards when I have a fully funded PDF position that includes stipend support.
M.Sc. and Ph.D. Opportunities
I am looking for students with a strong interest in research science and a solid background in biology or related fields. Students in my lab have science backgrounds in physiology, zoology, biochemistry/chemistry, molecular biology, or environmental sciences. Students that have completed undergraduate theses or have prior research experience are particularly encouraged to contact me. If you are considering graduate school, you are strongly encouraged to apply for OGS, NSERC or other appropriate scholarships.
Potential graduate students are welcome to contact me directly regarding research opportunities. Please include your resume (CV) and an electronic copy of your transcripts when you email.
Information on graduate applications is available through the Biology Department’s web pages for graduate students. There is plenty of information available through the website for prospective graduate students. Students typically start in summer (May) or fall (September) terms.
Undergraduate students are welcome in my lab for summer research projects and senior theses. Most of these students are from the Department of Biology and thesis students are typically enrolled in Biology 4C12. Preference is given to students with a strong interest in science research and in a biology or biology (physiology specialization) degree program. Interested students should contact me with information on your research interests, a resume and an electronic copy of your transcripts.
My lab does have a limited number of undergraduate volunteer positions each year. These students are typically involved in our fish care program and support our research initiatives. Please contact us in August, or no later than the second week of September, regarding possible volunteer positions for the academic year. We typically meet with students in the first week of term. For summer volunteer positions, please contact us in April. Volunteers should email a resume and electronic copy of their transcripts when they contact me.
Interested students should contact Dr. Joanna Wilson at: firstname.lastname@example.org
