I’m always on the lookout for keen students looking to pursue an MSc or PhD in either Biology or Earth & Ocean Sciences. A background in oceanography, marine biology, or ecology is a definite asset, as is an interest in seagoing research. I also hire undergraduate students to help with field and lab work during the summer. During the academic year there are additional opportunities for UVic undergrads to gain experience by volunteering in the lab. If you are interested in joining us, please drop me a line outlining your academic background and research interests.
My lab supports the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion in all aspects our our work. I encourage applications from students who are members of groups with historical or current barriers to equity, or other groups who continue to be underrepresented or marginalized in science and academia.
