Potential Graduate Students:
Students interested in graduate degrees focused on issues of rural energy, development, climate change, energy poverty, etc. should apply through the Resource Management and Environmental Studies program within the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability. Potential students should also be aware that it is possible to apply for external funding prior to starting a graduate program and application deadlines for external funding (e.g. SSHRC, NSERC, NSF) are earlier than the application deadline for the graduate program. Students interested in health research should visit the website for the interdisciplinary Bridge program for information about funding.
I encourage potential students to e-mail me (see contact page) well in advance of the application deadline. Please provide a brief bio, writing sample, unofficial transcripts and a description of the type of research you are interested in conducting. This should be a 1-2 page abstract of a possible research topic. Note: this is not a contract and may not be the project you end up working on, I use these abstracts to assess a student’s ability to conceptualize a problem and propose a method for answering research questions.
Post-Doctoral opportunities will be posted here and in the News or Blogs section of the site. If you don’t see a posting at this time, please check back periodically. I also welcome inquiries from nearly or recently completed Ph.D. students who plan to apply for external funding (e.g. SSHRC, NSERC, etc.) for post-doctoral work.
