We welcome inquiries from people across the sciences: specific preparation is less important than creativity, enthusiasm for research in this area, and a record of accomplishment.
We get a lot of applications, so emails that are obviously a form letter (lacking clear and sincere interest in our particular research) or demonstrate poor written English will be ignored.
Potential Postdoctoral Fellows: At this time, we only have capacity for postdoctoral fellows bringing external funding. But I will consider applying jointly for postdoctoral fellowships, such as NSERC. If, given this, you are interested in joining the group, please send a brief letter of introduction, CV (including publication list and contact information for 2-3 references), undergraduate and graduate transcripts (unofficial are fine), and suggestions of appropriate funding sources.
Potential Graduate Students: We have capacity for 1-2 additional graduate students (MSc or PhD) starting in Fall 2019. We are happy to talk to both current SFU students (Physics, MBB, Chemistry, or other) looking for a research advisor or co-advisor, as well as undergraduates anywhere who are potentially interested in SFU for graduate school.
Post-Bachelor's Research Assistants: We currently can only accommodate volunteers, but have several projects appropriate for part-time research.
Undergraduates: We have opportunities for both term-time and summer undergraduate research.
