Opportunities to join the team
- NO CURRENT OPENINGS. I do not have any specific openings in my lab at the moment. If you are a prospective graduate student interested in working with me, please read over the details and check out the resources below.
See the links below for undergraduate programs with which I am affiliated:
- Sustainability, Science and Society program (Interfaculty BA & Sc program)
- Department of Geography undergraduate degrees
Department, degrees and programs offered
Please look through the Department's website, prospective graduate student section and graduate handbook. The answers to many/most questions related to graduate study in the department can be found there.
There are many opportunities to obtain funding prior to starting your degree. This offers greater flexibility in (a) where you do your field work and (b) the kinds of research topics you can pursue. Please check the department's grad handbook and McGill's overview for details on specific opportunities. These sources include Canadian governmental funding bodies (SSHRC, NSERC, etc), teaching assistantships, and other internal grants for field work and attending conferences.
If you already have your own funding (or are pursuing your own funding) and we have overlapping interests, I'm happy to discuss working with you.
At times I have funding for students to work on my research projects. I do not have specific opportunities available right now, but I will usually post these opportunities on this webpage as they are available.
- Application deadline: January 15th.
- GPA: for admissions to the graduate program, minimum 3.0 GPA. In practice, the GPA of the average incoming students is much higher. In addition to good academic performance, I also look for evidence of practical/hands-on experience, commitment and passion for a topic, and a good work ethic.
- International students: Please see this McGill site for additional considerations. If you need to calculate your GPA-equivalent from past transcripts, see the calculator here. Finally, if English is not your native language, proof of language proficiency is required (see here for details and exceptions).
Further questions or inquiries
Please send a brief email with your:
- topical research interests (what kinds of questions do you want to work on?),
- methodological interests (what methods do you want to use or learn?),
- past experience,
- how you propose to fund your work (typically my students fund at least part of their work through fellowships, grants, etc.), and
- a copy of your CV and transcripts (unofficial are fine).
