Dear Prospective Trainee,
Trainees in my group may have Physics, Chemistry, Life Sciences or Engineering backgrounds. Working as part of a team with different scientific and cultural backgrounds is one of the thing I enjoy most about my work. What matters most to me is not so much what you already know as what you are willing, able and curious to learn about.
As a supervisor I am committed to the education and growth of every trainee in the group, whether your goal is a career in academia or just the opportunity to learn a little bit about biophysics over the summer. I believe this can be achieved through well-defined research projects, access to state-of-the-art equipment, close collaborations with colleagues expertise complementary to mine, regular meetings between supervisor (me) and trainee (you), a collegial working environment, support to attend summer schools and conferences, and the chance to follow your interests.
If you want to join our team, send me an email to tell me about yourself (include a CV and/or transcript if possible), what draws you to our research, and whether there is a project in particular that interests you. I recommend getting in touch in the late Fall for prospective graduate students, early Winter for prospective summer students, and Spring for prospective thesis students.
Our laboratory is located within the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and Mississaugas.
These territories are part of the Dish (Southern Ontario), and covered by the Dish With One Spoon treaty, a pledge by indigenous inhabitants to share and protect this land.
To honour the spirit of this treaty, we pledge to work towards sustainability in all our lab activities and to always reflect on the ethical consequences of our research.
