Joining Our Group

Potential Graduate Students:

Students interested in graduate degrees focused on issues of rural energy, development, climate change, energy poverty, etc. should apply through the Faculty of Forestry.*

Potential students should also be aware that it is possible to apply for external funding prior to starting a graduate program and application deadlines for external funding (e.g. SSHRC, NSERC, NSF) are earlier than the application deadline for the graduate program.

I encourage potential students to e-mail me  (see contact page) well in advance of the application deadline.  Please provide

1) a brief bio and CV
2) writing sample
3) unofficial transcripts
4) a description of the type of research you are interested in conducting. This should be a 1-2 page abstract of a possible research topic. Note: this is not a contract and may not be the project you end up working on, I use these abstracts to assess a student’s ability to conceptualize a problem and propose a method for answering research questions.

Post-Doctoral Researchers:

Post-Doctoral opportunities will be posted here and in the News or Blogs section of the site.  If you don’t see a posting at this time, please check back periodically.  I also welcome inquiries from nearly or recently completed Ph.D. students who plan to apply for external funding (e.g. SSHRC, NSERC, etc.) for post-doctoral work.

* I will also consider students applying to the Resource Management and Environmental Studies program within the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability.
