Details of funding opportunities for grad students and postdocs in the Zoology Department can be found here



There is an opportunity for one new PhD or MSc student to start in 2017. Interested applicants should contact Phil to discuss their research interests.



There are no funded postdoc positions available at this time. However, highly competitive students interested in undertaking research in the lab are still encouraged to contact Phil to discuss potential research projects. Postdoc Fellowship applications are also encouraged.



There are occasional opportunities for students to volunteer in the lab to assist with research and animal maintenance. We will also consider NSERC USRA projects or 3rd year directed studies projects that can be pursued by highly motivated students with a strong record of academic performance. Projects may also be undertaken as part of an Honour's thesis.
