I encourage anyone interested in working with us to get in touch with me, including those with no previous experience and especially those who identify with groups that are historically underrepresented in STEM fields.

Current open positions

We currently have a funded PhD student position available in the lab for a project investigating hibernation metabolism. All details including project description and application procedure can be found here (english et français). Applications will be reviewed starting July 7, 2023.

Prospective trainees

Postdocs: There are currently no funded postdoc positions available in the lab. However, for those interested in postdoctoral work, I will gladly help develop project proposals for external and internal funding opportunities.


Graduate students: If the work outlined in the Research Streams section is in line with your interests, please feel free to get in touch. Secure scholarship funding is not necessary, but a track record that is likely to be competitive for future scholarship funding is helpful. In your initial email, please include your CV, an unofficial transcript (relevé de notes), and an explanation of the type of work you’re interested in.


Undergraduate students: Students interested in research stages (BIO2050 or BIO3050) or Honours projects are welcome to get in touch. Interns (stagiaires) are usually supervised by a graduate student in the lab. In your initial email, please include your CV and an unofficial transcript (relevé de notes), and an explanation of the type of work you’re interested in.
