There are many employment and independent research opportunities for undergraduate students interested in all things plants, from ecophysiology and stable isotopes to evolutionary ecology and ecosystem restoration. I am able to supervise summer research students and honours students through the Biology Department.
Interested students are encouraged to send an e-mail to Dr. Ellie Goud with a brief description of your experience (including relevant coursework) and scientific interests. Including a resume or CV is encouraged.
Are you an international student looking for a Canadian internship? Check out Mitacs Globalink Research Internship – a 12 week research internship from May – October for international undergraduates from the following countries and regions: Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Mexico, Pakistan, Taiwan, Tunisia, Ukraine, United Kingdom and the United States.
MSc and PhD Students
I supervise graduate students through the MSc & PhD in Applied Science at Saint Mary’s. Students are supported through stipends, teaching and research assistantships.
I usually hope to recruit 1–2 graduate students per year. I encourage students to pursue their own research interests and projects that fall within the conceptual framework of the lab. If you are interested in applying, I suggest you look through our web page and read some of the papers we have published. Then, please send an e-mail to Dr. Ellie Goud with a brief description of your experience, research interests, and why you would like to join our group. Please also include a resume or CV and any examples of scientific writing that you can offer.
Some funding resources:
- NSERC Canada Graduate Schlarships: applications due in December for MSc & in October for PhD
- Mitacs Fellowships: funding available for International graduate students and postdoctoral fellows
Important dates: SMU graduate school application deadline is February 1st for a September start and October 1st for a January start.
